  • Christmas Flavour Crisps

    Walker’s Crispmas celebration! – I love a gimmick!

    OK. I’m a sucker for a gimmick. Tonight while picking up some emergency packed lunch provisions for Imogen I spotted the display of Walkers Festive crisps. One multipack was Christmas Dinner for Sprout Lovers and the other was for Sprout Haters. I realise that they are mainly selling this on the packaging and in reality, […]

  • The ultimate list of 2018’s Christmas Sandwiches!

    The countdown to Christmas is officially here and with the BIG news that Greggs have released their festive bake, it’s time to look at sandwiches. We were having a chat with a friend (Lee) a few weeks ago and he let slip that he rated the Christmas sandwiches in a top 10 list. I never […]

  • DFDS King Seaways on the Tyne

    The Best Non-Cruise on the Tyne

    Our experience of holidays on a ship is very limited. We’ve only done one, and that was in the Caribbean. We’d looked at heading over to Amsterdam with DFDs Seaways last year but never got around to organising it.

  • The Badger at Ponteland

    Sunday Lunch at the Badger in Ponteland

    It has been ages since we’d last been to the Badger in Ponteland. I think it was probably when Abigail was around 1 year old. Yet for some unknow reason we’d not returned. There was nothing wrong with the place and I totally love the concept. The only reason I can think of is that […]

  • Carrot Cake Cookies Recipe

    Carrot Cake Cookie Recipe

    One of the must have snacks at Walt Disney World has always been the Carrot Cake Cookie from the Writers Stop. If I’m totally honest there is a list of about 20 must haves, but this one is doable at home. The recipe for the Carrot Cake Cookie revolves around your favourite Carrot Cake mix. […]

  • Cafe Fish Scarborough

    Cafe Fish – Scarborough

    Last weekend I packed my bags and headed down to Scarborough for my annual girls weekend. No kids, no responsibilities, plenty of chat and prosecco is the recurring theme of the trip. Our base for the stay is my parents holiday home, Meadowside.  The four bedroomed home is located in the village of Burniston, some 5 […]
