School Holiday Short Breaks at Potters Resort - A Review

AD - Post features a press trip from October 2019 

We all know that we love our short breaks. Nothing beats quality time away with the family and short breaks with the kids are something I prioritise. I am a definite believer in experience and memories over material objects.

Potters Resort Review

The problem is, with three older kids, holidays are an expensive business. The amount of spending money we can sometimes go through on food and activities is ridiculous (I will never forget the time we spent £130 on one activity at Center Parcs).

Villa Pia Review - An alternative all-inclusive holiday in Italy

Ad - This post features a press trip from October 2019

Snuggled in the library on a rainy October morning with my slippers on, warm and cozy by the fire which had been going all day. I had a glass of red wine in hand, was just about to finish the final chapter of my book and was looking out through the shutters at the rolling Italian countryside outside. I could hear the kids in the kitchen next door tucking into a slice of homemade cake which the cook had just brought through for our afternoon snack and I remember thinking that this is the most relaxed I have ever felt on holiday.

Santa on the Rooftop at Fenwick Newcastle - 2019 Review & Tips

It was never my intention to buy tickets to Santa on the Rooftop this year. We already have a full festive diary and lots of lovely Christmas events to attend BUT in the end, I was caught up in the frenzy of booking tickets and ended up booking tickets to take my 4-year-old nephew as I knew he would love it.

5 Reasons to Watch An Inspector Calls with Teens

We were provided with press tickets
An Inspector Calls is a play I remember studying in year 9. I loved it at school and it was probably my first introduction to a murder mystery type story. I was enthralled.

Fast forward 20+ years and I'd kind of forgotten the story so I couldn't wait to relive my youth. I took my theatre-loving teen Harry along for the show on opening night at Newcastle's Theatre Royal.
