Bonfire night 


Bonfire night is one of my favourite nights of the year! Why?? I just don’t know but I love the atmosphere and watching the fireworks and standing around the fire on a crisp autumn evening. This year I went to Hastings Bonfire with my best friend, little sister and two little ones (not my little ones)! We went and stood in Hastings Pier where we could see the beginning of the procession which was incredible as always, I can’t believe how many people take part, we then sat in the deck chairs the pier provided with a mulled wine and waited for the bonfire to be lit and fireworks to start. Hastings yet again did not disappoint to carry out an amazing evening and watching it from the Pier made it all the more special!!

Not another Roadtrip!!

Yesterday evening Holly and I went back up to the O2 Academy in Islington to go and see HRVY perform. He put an incredible show on and his support acts Ellie and Roadtrip were also amazing!! We had so much fun at the gig meeting new people and learning new songs that we could sing along too. We stopped for food at Frankie and Benny’s on the way up and Holly and I went for Chicken Romana Pasta Bake and Salted Caramel cheesecake which were delicious we also had the spring fever mocktails which was juicy and refreshing. I loved going to the concert and the atmosphere was lovely seeing all of HRVY’s fans cheering and whooping for him.

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! 💕

A week in Cumbria 

It’s that time of year when we go on a family adventure and this year mum drove us all up to Cumbria. We split the journey and spent one night in Peterborough before we made it up to the most beautiful place of rolling hills that were also quite intimidating! We had hired a beautiful wooden hut called Dobby’s Lodge which had views over Skiddaw. The decor of the place was done so well and it had such a quaint and cosy feel. On the Sunday we went into the towns of Cockermouth and Keswick which were so different to any villages I have been to before with the river Derwent and river Cocker flowing through Cockermouth. St Bega’s church was a bit of a hidden gem in Bassenthwaite with a half an hour walk through fields to get to it. It is still a working church with a list of the service going ahead on the door. If you want somewhere to go wild swimming then you must visit Ullswater lake with a beautifully scenic backdrop and sailing ships out on the water it is the perfect place for a swim or kayak. For another water based walk you must visit the gorgeous waterfall Aira Force with the natural rapids and waterfalls it is a stunningly beautiful area. If you want an awesome short mountain hike then a walk in Whinlatter to Seat How is a nice 10km of mountainous terrain and is perfect for the dogs to have a run, the cafe may also be where I discovered Kiwi and Lime Old Mount Cider (delish)! We also went to a couple of awesome little pubs the Sun Inn at Bassenthwaite and the Ramblers Bar in Glenridding where I had traditional Cumberland sausage and mash for lunch!
