Gino’s at the Corn Exchange, a hidden gem in plain sight

February 18, 2016 admin 0

We all know I love a doing a review, I get to have a look at a new place or try a new product and then dish the dirt or rave about it to everyone, so when I heard the corn exchange were looking for bloggers I didn’t hesitate to get in touch. This time however it wasn’t my opinions they were interested in (I know can you believe it!) the corn exchange wanted my […]

A family day out at Lakeland Maize Maze

November 23, 2015 admin 0

During the last school holidays my family and I spent a wonderful weekend in one of our favourite UK places, the Lake District. We stayed in Ambleside at the Youth Hostel and visited the Pencil Museum, Bowness and Lakeland Maize Maze. The Maze is situated in Kendal about and definitely worth a trip if you are up that way. My boys love being outside, running and climbing and generally being boys so I was really […]

During half term I had to take my car for the dreaded MOT whilst I had my two boys, 5 and 3. The mechanic said it would take about an hour so we took a walk into Chester in hunt for a pancake house that had been recommended by friends. It took us a while to find it as it’s off the main road hidden away down a quiet little street behind the hustle and bustle […]

Secret Sausages – The verdict is in!

October 10, 2015 admin 0

I have two boys aged 5 and 3, both gorgeous, both monkeys. My youngest has a brilliant appetite and will eat almost everything, my eldest is fussy and reluctant to try new foods making meal times a challenge on occasion. Despite his fussy tendencies I still ensure that he eats plenty of fruit and vegetables, even if it is always the same ones, they still count. On more than one occasion I have slipped some […]

Last month my family and I had the pleasure of staying in the Lake District for the weekend, one of our all-time favourite places in the UK. Whilst we were there we visited a few different attractions as well as soaking up the outstanding scenery that the Lakes has to offer. Our first stop was to the Pencil Museum in Keswick. Now I know what you’re thinking, a pencil museum – wow how dull! And […]

May 25, 2015 admin 0

This is the second time I have worked with Bella and Bow and I simply can’t fault them at all. Their customer service is brilliant, they are friendly and helpful and discuss your ideas and orders with you like a normal person not like a snotty shop assistant. They make you feel like your order is as important to them as it is to you and when you are ordering something this personal that really […]
