The OM yoga show in Manchester

April 23, 2018 admin 0

This weekend my friend and I visited the OMyoga show in Manchester for the first time. The yoga show has been running for more than a decade and takes place twice a year, once in Manchester at Event city and once in London at Alexandre Place and is now considered the biggest yoga gathering in Europe.   Despite the event being called the yoga show it isn’t just about yoga, in fact your ticket gains […]

Our yearly camping treat

April 16, 2018 admin 0

The first time we went camping was to North Wales with friends and despite being pretty clueless and unprepared we had a great time. Mainly because our friends looked after us, shared their equipment with us, and taught us how to cope. In my head camping was all about the basics, which to be honest was why we never went sooner, the idea of the 4 of us sharing one room was enough to make […]

That time I conquered the longest zip wire in the UK

April 13, 2018 admin 0

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 […]

Lighterlife fast product review

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, […]

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 […]

Living Coasts in Torquay

February 27, 2018 admin 3

Last week we visited my Nana in Paignton and on the Wednesday we visited Torquay for the day. After finding Living Coasts on the Visit South Devon website I knew I wanted to pay them a visit, especially as the penguins roam free which certainly isn’t something you get to see everyday.   We arrived at about 11am and thankfully the school holidays in South Devon differ to those in the North West so it […]
