To get into the festive spirit, earlier this month Gavin and I took a day trip to Birmingham to visit the Christmassy sights. I used to go to university in Birmingham (many moons ago now!) so I always enjoy visiting the city to see if anything has changed and what’s new.

The location of the hotel was perfect for us to go out exploring. We arrived early so before we could…

We also had drink and dinner…

Over the Easter weekend I visited the beautiful seaside town of Brighton for a couple of days along with my Mum, my sister, and my niece for her 13th birthday treat. I’ll warn you now, this post is quite photo heavy! We’d planned to have a chilled couple of days wandering around the pretty little shops in the beautiful town and eating chips on the beach, and luckily the weather was perfect and we enjoyed sunshine throughout the whole trip!
