Last week was a bit of a rollercoaster with an extreme low and some pretty great highs - saying goodbye never gets any easier.
My darling hubby is Mr Romantic which is why I needed to get creative for his gift for Valentine's Day this year.
How many nights a week do you find yourself reaching for a glass of wine or a beer to unwind? For some of us it's almost every night and those one or two glasses soon add up.
The new year has only really just begun but lots of exciting things are already happening for me in 2018! As many of you will already know (if you read my Goodbye 2017 hello 2018 post) I have a new job!
Yesterday my friend and I decided to have a longer lunch and actually venture outside the four walls of our office which is handily located right next to the Quayside in Newcastle. I'm a born and bred Geordie and I'm ashamed to say I've never indulged in dining out during Restaurant Week - that is until yesterday!
There's nothing I love more than a hearty roast dinner on a Sunday afternoon and it's even tastier when you don't have to cook or do the dishes.
The presents have been opened, the tins of chocolate demolished and the rest of the turkey population can breathe a sigh of relief - that's Christmas done and dusted for another year!
I can't quite believe that 2017 is coming to an end and we're preparing to say hello to 2018! What a year 2017 has been.
With it being Christmas Eve I’m feeling reflective on my family traditions for the festive period. It’s probably because on top of the usual hustle and bustle of juggling work with preparing for Christmas we’ve also moved into our new home, so we might not be carrying out some of our traditions this year.
