Explores: Matilda the Musical, Bristol Hippodrome

If you read my last theatre review (Kinky Boots @ Bristol Hippodrome) then you’ll know I do love a bit of musical theatre. But when invited to a special event to celebrate the arrival of Matilda The Musical at the Bristol Hippodrome, I was especially excited! Seeing the film with my mum at the (original) Odeon…

Eats: Mrs. Potts Chocolate House, Bristol

So the day before we visited Mrs. Potts Chocolate House I read a review on Instagram that said Mrs Potts was ‘too chocolatey’. Needless to say as a firm believer pudding should only ever be chocolatey (unless it’s apple pie), I thought this person was clearly a bit bonkers visiting somewhere that calls itself a…

Explores: Portmeirion, Gwynedd

Last week my husband, the boys and the bump/I went to West and North Wales on a Sun holiday, staying in Haven sites at Pwllheli and Prestatyn.

I was lucky enough to be invited along to review the new…

Eats & Explores: 3 Nights in Athens, Greece

We booked in October…

Explores: Kinky Boots UK Tour, Bristol Hippodrome

I love musicals. One of my earliest memories is going to the Gwyn Hall in Neath (where I’m from) and watching the local amateur dramatic society performing South Pacific,  afterwards singing ‘I’m going to wash that man right out my hair’ for weeks on end. (Getting some strange looks, being only five). I’ve seen Wicked…
