There is a vast amount of choice when it comes to eating in Leeds. However, my top top is to have a look around for early bird and lunch menus and you’ll be able to eat somewhere decent for a couple of quid more than you’d spend at Greggs (and probably the equivalent to McDonalds… Read More Miller and Carter – The Headrow
The weather has been stunning recently, and on a friends recommendation I decided to visit Porto, in Bowness-in-Windermere. Easy to find behind the main street, Porto is an Italian which has rave reviews, and rightly so. Situated on a street that honestly smelt delicious this restaurant is a gem. We were lucky enough to sit… Read More Porto Windermere
A few years ago, somebody tried to break into my flat. They were thankfully unsuccessful but I did get a visit from a policeman later on in the day to take a statement. Said police-person also came into the house and realised I was expecting a child, well, not me personally but you know what… Read More Sleep in your own bed!
Ever booked an impromptu holiday by accident? Yeah, me too. Anyway, this was a weird but exciting one. We fancied a cheeky weekend away somewhere that wasn’t going to cost the earth and we’d enjoy as a family, I’d only been to Wales once when I was younger so I thought it was appropriate we… Read More Our Welsh Adventure
Skint Black Friday, Cyber Monday, spend, spend, spend! Having a family adds up cost wise. Everyone said having kids would be expensive but I thought it would be a few nappies and a tin of milk. Turns out I massively underestimated. I’m trying to get a hold of my finances, I got in a little… Read More Money Money Money!
I recently got asked to take part in the Tiger Sheds Win a shed competition. I’ve got her to colour in the shed, (it’s not very good ‘sorry’) but she’s done it and it’s here. I did have high hopes that I’d have a child prodigy that’d become one of those internet sensations but she… Read More Terrible Art from my Daughter
The little one started nursery this week. It’s the all day every day lifestyle that she is not accustomed to. It’s the baptism of fire into the real world. I think that is fair at 2 years old. Dropping her off was weird, turns out that she wasn’t too happy. In fact on day 2,… Read More The Nursery Nightmare
So recently I got involved with a campaign for Wynsors to show off my amazing dance skills! They’ve just released a new product to celebrate Father’s Day this Sunday. Remote Controlled Dad Dancing Shoes! Now, I’ll be totally honest, this was my 5 minutes of fame, and I, as I’m sure you can see from… Read More 5 Minutes of Fame…
I got a great Yorkshire hamper as part of Plusnet’s Love you back campaign! Not only did I get some delicious Yorkshire crisps but also some of the regions finest ales! Now, as nice as all this was, there was something in there that stood out more than anything at that was Hendersons Relish! I’ve… Read More Yorkshire Hamper
It’s a bit of a late update but Skyler recently turned 1! Yup, 1. I’ve managed to keep another human alive and working for a year. The same man who can’t really look after himself and has only recently mastered the art of cooking from home instead of getting a takeaway. Anyway, she got spoilt… Read More Skyler’s 1st Birthday!
