At the weekend, my best friend and I went to Stratford Upon Avon for my birthday. We went last year too, and we decided to go to the same place for afternoon tea, which was at the Grosvenor Hotel. Because we went on a Sunday I thought the whole town would be dead, but it was actually rammed with people! We had a walk down the canal, popped into the shops on the high street, and they had a really lovely big local market on. After we had a little walk around the town, we went to the hotel for…

So as it was my birthday on Tuesday and the weather was so lovely, I decided for my birthday dinner we should have a little picnic in the garden with my family. We bought loads of nice picnic food, and I’d also just received this gorgeous picnic hamper which I had won from Em’s blog, so it seemed ideal! Even kitty Merlin joined us for a bit… Summer Picnic These photos we’re actually taken after the event as I was too excited scoffing food to take photographs, so there wasn’t much food left. But we had a selection of cheeses,…

So today is my 23rd birthday! Yay! Birthdays really aren’t as exciting when you grow up are they? I didn’t get much in the way of gifts but my parents are taking me out for a day trip at the weekend which will be nice. And the weekend after that my best friend is taking me out for afternoon tea in Stratford upon Avon! On Saturday I went out with some friends from work in my local town, and on Friday night Terri and I will be raving it up in good old Stoke 😉 She says she’s made me…

Here’s a more personal post compared to my usual shopping hauls and bargain hunting blog posts. At the beginning of June it was my little nephew Joseph’s Christening. It was held at our local village church, which is so beautiful and old, and luckily the sun shone down all day. After the church service, we went to the venue we had hired for a buffet lunch and drinks. Yummy cheese, olives, and pizza! Baby Joseph is now 9 months old and is my sisters son, and I also have a little 9 year old niece; Lara.  As a gift, I…

Happy Fathers Day to my super-duper Daddy! I have the best Dad (and Mum!) I could ever ask for. And even after spending a week away on holiday with them both they haven’t made me want to pack up and leave home just yet! They’re both always there for me and are always supportive and lovely (when they’re not both driving me nuts) ♥   Also I got him a hilarious Fathers Day card that says ‘Finest Dad, Extra Matured, Aged to Perfection’ and looks like a block of cheese.. haha, I’m so amusing.

 So, if you follow me on Twitter, you will no doubt have heard me whinging and whining about my weight and body recently. I am not really sure how, but I seem to have put a hell of a lot of weight on really quickly. And I’m going on holiday in 5 weeks time and I hope to look at least a little bit presentable in my gorgeous new bikinis! This blog post isn’t meant to be ‘advice’ by the way, as I’ve no idea on weight loss, I just felt like writing down my new ideas to keep myself…
