A Lack of Adventures in Tea and Cake

It's been a while! 

I have been a terrible blogger on here lately. I honestly do not know where the time goes! But I have the house to myself for a couple of hours tonight, a very rare occurrence indeed, so how better to fill it than a long awaited catch up?

Here's the story blog wise: A while back, I set myself up a new space - Let's Go Somewhere Nice, where I intended on posting mainly travel and days out type stuff, leaving this old cosy spot for everything else. The somewhere along the line I realised I struggle for time to write one blog, nevermind two! Still, I don't want to let this one go - its been too long and I'm attached I guess! But that means I need to make sure I have something to say! 

Life wise, nothing much has changed - the kids are getting bigger, work is still boring, my diet is still 90% cake.... It's been a slow start to the year, and I'm blaming the weather in large part. It's so hard to get motivated when it's grey and cold out. I'm definitely attributing my new blog motivation to the recent turnaround in temperatures, and now the sun has starting showing his face I'm hoping to make lots of exciting summer plans! 

The bank holiday weekends always help with that too - those extra days are so valuable! I'm making the most of this coming one by taking a little family road trip... to see owls! KC knows I'm a massive fan of owls and birds of prey and we've exhausted most of the more local falconry centres. While looking for somewhere new, he spotted something perfect while he was browsing Groupon's top deals on the best Newcastle attractions and snapped up enough spots for us all! 

It'll be out first proper outdoor day out all year, and I absolutely can't wait! Hopefully it'll just open the floodgates of fun trips for the year! Unusually, I have very little penned in or booked for the rest of the summer but that means I have loads of spaces in the diary to fill! I'd like to spend a bit of time exploring a new bit of the UK - we have a tendency to head North on our trips, and we all love Yorkshire, the Lake District and Scotland - but I actually know very little of the country below Sheffield! If you have a favourite area in England that you can recommend then I'd love to hear where and why! 

Of course, I'm planning a lot of sunny trips to the beach, long days of ice cream and sitting in the park, and we are most likely to get a lot of rain and like three really nice afternoons where I will invariably be stuck at work and miss it,.. but ya gotta be optimistic! Though maybe it'd be a good idea to leave me some of your favourite bad-weather places to go too....?


  1. I'm so glad you're back - and the owls look so lovely!


  2. This place was amazing! Great food, it's smaller than others I guess but it is still a fair sized fun. The decor at these LA event venues was amazing as every note of music reverberates off the beautiful walls. Everything about this venue is nothing less than 5 stars.


Comments are like tea and cake, they sustain me
