Eats & Explores: The Bower House, Shipston-on-Stour

We’re in June, which you may know (if you read the nonsense I write here or follow me on Instagram, hi if you do! 👋), means that The Bean, aka the tiny human I’m currently growing, is officially due NEXT MONTH. (😱😬😅) How did that happen!? Anyway because I don’t like to do things in…

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…

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.

We booked in October…

(Getting some strange looks, being only five). I’ve seen Wicked…

Eats & Explores: A Night in Llandeilo, Carmarthenshire

Accomodation: The Cawdor Hotel Where: Rhosmaen St, Llandeilo SA19 6EN The Cawdor came onto my radar a few years ago when my mum stayed there – she raved about a free upgrade to a four poster bed and the exceptional food. So when I spotted a special offer on their Facebook page just before Christmas,…

Eats & Giveaway: Tiffin at the Pier, Clevedon

A bit of background… When I met my now husband in 2015, Clevedon was a bit of a mysterious place to me… I knew it was by the sea, and towards Weston-super-Mare, and that was pretty much it. But Chris was living there, and Wills and Theo went (and still go) to school there, so…
