Celebrating my 40th birthday in Oslo

23rd March 2018

I’m just going to come straight out and say it, we had a fantastic time in Oslo last weekend celebrating my 40th birthday.

I didn’t want this post to be just the usual list of what to see, do or eat when spending 48 hours or so in a new city. For one, far better bloggers than me have already done this, and secondly, we travelled with our two year old son which rather limits how much you can realistically achieve and take blog-worthy photos of!


A weekend in Lisbon

26th November 2017

As I write the central heating is on full blast, the rain is battering the windows and to top it off it’s only 3pm and already going dark. Welcome to a typical winter in the north of England.

Its all a bit different to last week at this time, we were in Lisbon, celebrating my husbands fortieth, walking around in short sleeves and eating our body weight in custard tarts.


Happy Birthday to my little Scandinavian

27th October 2017

Please forgive me but as I write this I’m not feeling my best; we’ve had a heavy few days celebrating. No, I’ve not been dancing on tables until the early hours or drinking far too many cocktails. Those days are long gone. It’s been our son’s 2nd birthday.
