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.
With the temperature dropping below zero for most us in the UK, now is the time to start thinking of ways you can keep warm and well at home this winter.
