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!!!

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!

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!  

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. To spend some quality with my cousin, nanny and mummy in a gorgeous setting is the perfect way to spend a Friday afternoon off work!

A week in Spain 🇪🇸 


Last week my best friend and I went to the Costa Del Sol to chill and spend some much needed time in the sun! Our flight was super early on the Monday morning so we stayed at the Premier Inn at Gatwick’s North Terminal, of course we had to get a pic of our matching pjs in the bathroom mirror because the lighting was just right. We arrived at Malaga Airport early on Monday morning and went and collected our car which was a horrible colour Fiat Panda, we then drove down to Fuengirola which is around 20 minutes south of Malaga. We found a parking space and our first trip was to the Zoo where there were so many school children on a tour but we managed to spend a couple of hours looking around, we also got a really nice picture so that was a bonus. After the zoo we walked through the lanes down to the beach where we found a lovely café for a spot of lunch, whilst we were there we met a couple who used to live in Hastings but now live out in Fuengirola full time talk about small world! After lunch we went for a wander down onto the beach and it was then time to head back to the car to drive to our resort. We stayed at Club Marbella which is part of the Crown Resorts, a chain of family resorts with something for everybody, around the Costa Del Sol. The apartment was lovely and we couldn’t wait to get down to the pool and chill. Most of our holiday was chilling down by the pool where I watched the first two seasons of Line of Duty on Netflix and I read the whole of Me Before You by Jojo Moyes, we also did a bit of swimming in the pool. On Wednesday we ate at the restaurant on the resort as there were Flamenco dancers performing and I wanted to see them. At dinner I found the most delicious snack/starter of deep fried camembert with cranberry sauce OMG it was amazing! The Flamenco dancers were awesome as usual and of course there had to be somebody who kissed them at the end. On the Thursday we went down the road to Little Italy for dinner. We had cheesy garlic bread which was so gooey and delicious, I then had Seafood Pasta cooked to perfection in a tomato sauce and for dessert it had to be the classic Coconut Ice Cream served in half of a coconut, it was an amazing last meal of the holiday and I can’t wait to go back there for food sometime soon! We flew back to Gatwick late on the Friday night and it was safe to say that we had a fabulously relaxing holiday. I would also like to say how immensely proud I am of my best friend for conquering a lot of fears on the holiday from flying on a plane, to driving in a foreign country and speaking to different people without prompting, I knew how difficult the holiday was for her and it is safe to say she was tested a lot that whole week! Thank you for an amazing experience best one!!
