A Lovely Weekend in Leeds with Holiday Inn (AD)
The city of Leeds holds such a special place in my heart. It is where I went aged 18 when I left home. I still remember so vividly my Mum and her then boyfriend dropping me off with all my worldly possessions piled high in the car, 'High' by the Lighthouse Family was playing and I remember being so...

Going the extra mile for their customers? Community Banking with Natwest (AD)
Jon and I were talking the other week about certain things that just aren't the same anymore. Can you remember the last time you went into a travel agent to book a holiday?

Here in the UK we have been having some sort of long running heatwave, there hasn't been rain for a couple of weeks and the sun has shined every single day. To top that off the World...

A wonderful stay at Pennyhill Park Hotel & Spa
As my children are growing older (sob) I have found myself both finding and seeking a little bit of me time. In those glorious, all consuming, exhausting newborn days you wonder if you will ever have time to even have a hot shower or read a page of your book again, let alone actually leave the house alone and...

Our Family Plastic Challenge with Coca-Cola
If you have been a friend of mine for life, known me for 5 minutes, or followed me on social media for any sort of amount of time you will know that there is one thing that I love more than any other (not more than my husband or children admittedly although it comes close). That thing is Diet...

Some Early Father’s Day Gifts…
I think it is pretty safe to say by now that I love taking photos. I have always been someone who takes lots of photos, even back at school and university I was the one who took my disposable camera out and snapped many embarrassing photos of nights out. I used to head to the 1 hour photo lab...
