Girl’s Night In – Relax and Unwind

As I’ve gotten older night’s in have definitely become more desirable, especially after a long week at work. Don’t get me wrong I still enjoy a good night out now and then but coming home and relaxing after a hard day is a great way to recharge. Here’s what I like to do on a quiet night in. 1. Run a bath. Since we have fairly low hit water pressure in our flat it can take half an hour to fill the tub, so this is one of the first things I’ll do. While waiting for it to run I Read More…

Autumn to do list

“Of autumn’s wine, now drink your fill; the frost’s on the pumpkin, and snow’s on the hill.” –The Old Farmer’s Almanac, 1993 It’s the first day of Autumn! Finally! I love this time of year, the leaves changing colour, the fashion – knitwear and scarves, warm drinks and making soup, Halloween and Bonfire Night, it’s definitely my favourite season. I’m currently curled up on the sofa with a fruit tea and watching Teen Wolf on Netflix (I’m on season 2). I’ve spoken about my love of Autumn before but this year I wanted to share what I want to do Read More…

Euro Miniature Expo

If you’ve been following me for a while you’ll know that my family attend a hobbyist modelling show every September, Euro Militaire. Unfortunately last year saw the end of the show, which I’m told was primarily due to dwindling attendance in recent years. I spoke last year how there were less models in the competition and no military displays as there had been in previous years. Dad was especially disappointed that 2016 was the last Euro Militaire and the end of a family tradition. ☹ While hunting around for information and to confirm if the rumours regarding the shows end Read More…

Paris Trip – Day 4 – Arc De Triomphe and Notre Dame

Catch up on Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3 of our trip. Another early start and another trip to the bakery for breakfast, but first we packed our cases and took them to the baggage store at our hotel. There were lockers which were accessed by a key card for a small fee. It was definitely worth it as we would never have carried our cases up the Eiffel Tower. After breakfast we headed for the Arc De Trimophe and took some photos, we didn’t have time to go up in unfortunately but it was great to see it in Read More…

During my recent trip to Paris (catch up on Day 1 and Day 2) with my friend Kelly, we spent the 3rd day in Disneyland!

We had an amazing day riding rollercoasters, Read More…
