Hastings Seafood and Wine Festival 


Yesterday was another day with my bestie and her family and my little sister Mollie. We went down to check out the Seafood and Wine Festival because Paul’s brother had his BBQ Project van down there. There was so much delicious looking food and loads of amazing tasting wines on offer and we couldn’t decide what we wanted to eat or drink so we tried a bit of pretty much everything. It was lovely to see so much local produce on offer and the atmosphere was buzzing. After the festival we hit the arcades with Evie and had a blast winning lots of silly prizes!! We then needed a sweet treat so we tried out the new Kaspas in the town centre. The treats were amazing but the service was awful. All in all it was a fabby fun day out with some of my most favourite people!!!

A Roadtrip to see Road Trip 


Yesterday I went up to the O2 Academy in Islington to go and see Road Trip on their headline tour. I went up with my bestie and little sister and my besties brother kindly said he would drive us so we got super close to the venue without getting wet. There were so many girlies waiting to see the boys perform and to be involved in the filming of their music video for After the Show. The staff at the venue were lovely and showed my sister, Holly and I to the side of the stage where we stayed for the whole of the show. Robyn and Chloe were supporting the boys and they put on a great show but the boys were as always outstanding and didn’t fail to please the crowds. We stopped off for my first ever Frankie and Benny’s on the way home which was absolutely delish and Holly and I discovered salted caramel martinis (haha).

Wellies and Wristbands 


This August bank holiday I took seven of my wonderful Guides from my unit down to Foxlease in the New Forest for the Wellies and Wristbands festival with my Best friend. It was their first ever Guide Camp where they could sleep in a tent, go off and do activities independently and then listen to amazing bands and artists in the evening! The bands performing this year were incredible and we were lucky enough to see My Forever, The Hara, Taken, The Shades, HRVY along with many other artists. Roadtrip also closed the show on the Friday night when I was lucky enough to get a picture with them. They then came back to perform again on the Sunday and again I got to talk to their manager Blair and then chat with the boys again (mostly Mikey as he is my favourite). The boys are just so down to earth and normal and that is what I love about them. The Roadtrip boys really know how to put on a show and entertained the crowd so much on both of their performances. The girls were louder on the second time round because more of them knew who they were. My Forever performed amazingly well on the Saturday evening and unfortunately they were on an early slot so there wasn’t as big of a crowd but, again I got to have a chat with them and got a picture with two of the members who were such lovely guys!! Taken and The Shades also performed incredible sets that the crowd loved but unfortunately I was unable to meet them! My bestie and I also made some new friends in a ranger leader from Somerset and two Guide leaders from Bournemouth who were absolutely lovely ladies and I truly hope we are able to stay in contact with them! I had an absolute blast this bank holiday but it is now nice to be in the New Forest cottage with my family!

Shredded Feet and up at the O2 


On Saturday evening I was out on a walk along the seafront with my family and dogs when a lady came running up from the sea shouting for somebody to help her rescue a baby seal. My mum nominated my sister and I to go and help rescue it and I spent around half an hour running bare foot around the rock pools and in and out of the sea fully dressed trying to get this seal back out to sea. The seal was fine and finally went back out to sea but I ended up with five or six cuts on each of my feet which really blooming hurt. Today was a special day because we took my nan up to the O2 for her Christmas present. My sister, mum and I drove up to Eltham to meet up with my Nans best friend (Auntie Jan) at her house and we got the bus to the O2. We had a bit of time to spare so my mum, sister and I went on the Emirates Cable Car which was amazing, you could see so much of London! At two o’clock it was time for my Nan’s Christmas present, my sister and I were meant to be joining my nan in a climb Up at the O2 but unfortunately my sister couldn’t partake so my poor Auntie Jan got roped in to go up. The experience was amazing and the view was incredible. I would highly recommend to anybody who likes heights and a thrill to book tickets to go Up at the O2. My nan, Auntie Jam and I had an amazing time and our guide Rory was amazing as he stayed with my nan and Auntie Jan for the whole experience helping them when they got stuck! After the climb we rejoined my mum, sister and Uncle Ken for some dinner. We went to Zizzi’s which was as always incredibly and we all chowed down. I went for my usual Pink G&T, chicken and mushroom risotto and then to finish my sister and I shared the salted caramel brownie and the white chocolate and raspberry blondie. Today has been an amazing experience and I am so grateful that my family love adventures even on a Sunday! 💕

An afternoon tea 


If you want a quiet and tranquil afternoon filled with tea and delicious cake then you must go and visit Jo and the lovely staff at this delightful tea rooms in East Sussex!! I have only just visited for afternoon tea and it was so beautiful I had to blog about it straight away!! The Tic Toc is situated in a small village and is a combination of a gift shop, a hairdressers and a tea rooms out the back with an amazing view across the cliffs. I have been filled with countless cups of tea and lots of delicious sandwiches and cakes, which are all made by the wonderful team who welcome you with big smiles.

One Year Celebration!!


I can’t believe my Guide Unit has been open for a year! This year has gone so fast and my unit has grown in size and almost tripled. I wouldn’t have been able to keep it going without the ongoing support from my mum, my best friend (Hannah) and the other leaders at the Brownie and Rainbow Unit.
To celebrate my unit being open for a year I decided it would be a nice idea to take the girls out on a day trip so, we hoped on a train and went to Brighton for the day. The weather was beautiful for a spring day so the girls didn’t mind walking between different destinations as much. Our first stop was the SeaLife Centre on the seafront where we saw so many different sea creatures and the girls got to play in the interactive rock pool. I had as much fun as they did looking at all of the fish! 

We then had to stop off for our picnic lunch so we went down on the pebbles of Brighton Beach where we ate our lunch and talked about how much we enjoyed the Aquarium. Our next stop was of course the Pier where I allowed the girls time to play in the arcades and go on the waltzers at the end of the Pier (fortunately we had no throw ups of lunch and the girls really enjoyed the air hockey tournaments that we held). Whilst on the pier Hannah and I found an awesome game where you had to knock down the clowns to win tickets. I won myself enough tickets for a snazzy palace pier mug which I surprisingly love!

After an hour or so on the Pier it was time to make our way to Pizza Hut for our celebratory meal out. We had prebooked the table otherwise the poor restaurant wouldn’t have been able to cope with having 17 people turn up who all wanted to sit together! The girls had the Big Heroes menu option whilst the adults were allowed an adult meal which was delicious and everybody found something that they liked to eat. I of course finished off my meal with salted caramel cookie dough and ice cream. It was such a lovely trip to Brighton and the weather made it all the more worthwhile as it was warm and sunny for the whole day!! I want to take this opportunity to give a big shoutout to the lovely staff at Queens Road Brighton Pizza Hut who were so accommodating and treated our girls with respect thank you so much for allowing us to have a super fun time!!

Lunch in a Country Pub 


We are so blessed to have so many beautiful country pubs in Sussex and although I have been to quite a few I haven’t even really got started! There is something really relaxing about going out for lunch at a country pub on a summers day when you can sit in a beer garden with the people you love and eat the most delicious and traditional pub grub. My favourite country pub in Sussex is the Royal Oak at Pett. It is such a lovely village pub with a cricket green opposite and is perfect for a lunch time sandwich with your family or friends. I don’t know if it is just me but when it comes to the summer I prefer to be out in the fresh air enjoying the weather rather than being sat inside a restaurant in the evening. I recently went to a country pub called the Ash Tree Inn for lunch with two of my very good friends and it really cheered me up because as we were waiting for our food to arrive, the local hunt rode past and actually stopped for drinks at the pub. The food at the pub was delicious although I did have a cheese overload with Camembert starter and macaroni cheese main ( thank you Shannon for ordering me a starter). My new saying lately is ‘Do What You Love’, when it comes to tackling anxiety and depression frequently and trying to please everybody but yourself, you don’t do anything that makes you happy and that you enjoy doing. One of my favourite things to do is spend time with my family and friends. Another of my favourite things is to go out to country pubs for lunch so I just combine the two. There are so many lovely country pubs around the whole of the country and although I am only blessed with the ones in Sussex most of the time, why don’t you go out and find a country pub for lunch. I can guarantee you won’t be 100% disappointed with your decision. Below is a list of some of my favourite country pubs around East Sussex. 

The Queens Head – Icklesham

The Royal Oak – Pett

The Cricketers Arms – Alfriston

The Ash Tree Inn – Ashburnham

The Six Bells Inn – Chiddingly

The Barley Mow Selmeston

The Swann Inn – Dallington

The Lamb Inn – Hooe
