Here we go again, another throw back to one of the activities form my 3o things to do before my 30th list and this time it was pretty extreme for me, completing the longest zip wire in the UK. Read on to see how it went. The longest zip wire in the UK was actually the first activity that made the list. So I was super excited that only a few month into the list […]

Olverum bath oil product review

April 12, 2018 admin 0

My bath is basically my sanctuary, the only place in the whole house were I get peace and quiet and to be fair that’s not always guaranteed. Most days I run a bath after the boys have gone to bed so that I don’t have to worry about them trying to sneak in with me or me having to answer to “muummmmy” for the 9ooth time. Instead I shut the door, grab my book and […]

I can’t remember a time when I have ever been happy with my weight but since having the boys I have been more conscious of the way I look and I yo-yo diet, a lot. I go from not caring and eating all the cheese and drinking all the wine to trying cleanses, slimming world and a variety of other diets. At the moment I am trying to increase my exercise and am loving yoga […]

Dinosaur World Live in Chester

April 10, 2018 admin 0

At the weekend we went to the new theatre in Chester, The Story House, which is just the best addition to the city, to watch Dinosaur World Live. I wasn’t to sure what to expect from the show but my eldest had informed me that “when the meteor hit the earth 5 dinosaur eggs were saved and it’s probably about time they hatched so maybe this is them putting on a show using those real […]

Our first trip to Marco Pierre White in Chester

April 8, 2018 admin 0

I thought I would share another one of my “bucket list experiences” with you from three years ago when I set myself the challenge to do 30 things before I turned 30. This time it is of a memory of a more sedate experience which was to eat in a celebrity restaurant. When I added this to the list I didn’t have a particular chef or restaurant in mind, any would do, I just wanted […]

My first ever camping experience

April 2, 2018 admin 0

Throw back to my bucket list and the time I ticked off camping thanks to our friends letting us tag along…. Loads of my friends had been banging on about camping for years, facebook was full of pictures of everyone and their dog (literally in most cases) camping, but I always failed to see the attraction. You sleep on the floor with a thin bit of material protecting you from the elements, it’s freezing cold, […]

Time to tackle the garden

April 1, 2018 admin 1

When we moved into our house 4 years ago we knew there was a lot we wanted to do to it. We started with simple decorating tasks so that our bedrooms and the lounge were the way we wanted them to be, so it felt like our home and not somebody else’s. Then we fitted a new downstairs bathroom and the jobs got bigger from there with a whole new en-suite being added and finally […]

That time I drove an Aston Martin

March 30, 2018 admin 0

When I was 29 I wrote a list of 30 things I wanted to complete before I was 30 and although I never quite completed the list I did manage to tick off most of them with a bit of help from family and friends. One of the things on my list was to drive a really fast car and my husband arranged this for me for my birthday at the Three Sisters in Wigan. […]

Cinderella at the St.Helens Theatre Royal

March 26, 2018 admin 0

On Saturday night we visited The Theatre Royal in St. Helens to watch our third panto, Cinderella, and I think I was more excited for this one than the children were because Prince Charming is played by no other than Lee Latchford-Evans from Steps. This little nugget of information meant that the week leading up to panto day was spent with me singing various renditions of my favourite Steps songs (along with dance moves) and […]
