LIKE so many of you, Elsie and I have been doing all manner of Halloween things this week for half term. On Monday we went pumpkin picking for the first time (which was more fun than I expected!) yesterday we did plenty of Halloween drawings and on Tuesday we made a trip to our local arty place, the Barnsley Civic to see the perfect Halloween performance, The Witch That Couldn’t
AFTER a fabulous week away living ‘La Dolce Vita’, I’m back in blighty and just about getting back to reality! How the devil are you all?! It feels a little silly writing this post today, as I sit huddled by the fire, with my woolies on (!), but seeing as we all need some sunshine, I thought I’d share a very ‘summery’ style post. (Think of it as my little dedication to
WHEN I told Elsie I was taking her to Liverpool for the day, she was very excited. She thought that the city would be full of ‘pools’ and that she’d be spending the day in her swimsuit (well it kind of makes sense I guess!), and although I had to point out to her that this wasn’t quite the case, thankfully it didn’t dampen her enthusiasm! We did find
I LOVE London. Every time I visit – often for work, sometimes for pleasure – I discover something new or come across a part of the city which makes my heart flutter. Which is why I’m thrilled to bring you a lovely competition today, which will enable you to go and have fun in our capital for FREE!
I ENJOYED an incredible afternoon tea at Bettys the other week. On a cold yet beautiful winter’s Day, I travelled to the historic city of York with my lovely Mum and we experienced the most delicious champagne afternoon tea, as Bettys‘ guests. Quite frankly, if there’s a finer way to spend a few precious hours with your Mum, well I’d be amazed because this really was quite something. I often talk
AFTER a week of being housebound with germs, getting outside at the weekend was a must. A chance to blow off some cobwebs. A chance to visit somewhere we’ve never been. (Even though it’s practically right on our doorstep.) After a relaxing Saturday morning watching films (and crying at the beginning of UP!) we ventured out to Monk Bretton Priory – a ruined medieval priory, less than 10 mins away
LAST week on Wednesday when most people were at work, I achieved two firsts. One – I went to the ‘races’ for the very first time and not just any old races, but the prestigious and oh so glamorous Qatar Goodwood Festival, fondly otherwise known as ‘Glorious Goodwood‘. And two – I wore a hat, a ‘proper’ fabulous hat and felt very much like a lady. As guests of Glorious
A COUPLE of months ago, we spent a glorious few days in the beautiful Lake District. We stayed in a fabulous gypsy caravan (and oh and how we loved it!) and whilst we were there, we went to see a few local attractions as a family. Now Elsie is almost three, we are loving having all kinds of fun, visiting new places with her and watching her learn, explore and
