Lobo Rojo North Shields Review (+ Kids Menu)

Lobo Rojo is a relaxed restaurant on North Shields Fish Quay serving traditional Mexican street food and drinks. Located in the Old Irvins Brasserie building, it is somewhere I have wanted to visit in FOREVER. Steve and I finally escaped from the kids for a few hours and visited over Bank Holiday weekend this summer. It was worth the wait.

Weekend Reading (October 2021)

 
Sunday 10th October








Holiday Catch Up 

Hello! And welcome to another edition of weekend reading. Just a little place for a general catch up and chat about this and that. 

Not last week but the week before, Steve had the week off work so I decided to take the week off too (as best I could anyway). The problem with trying to take a week of when you're a business owner is that you just pretty much double your workload (especially emails building up) the following week. So this week I have felt as if I have been on one big catch up and my routine has gone out of the window.

Child Friendly Cafes in North East England

Thanks to our team member Bethanie for sharing some personal recommendations for child friendly cafes across North East England to try in this post. This post was published in October 2021, photos are a mix of Bethanies and my own. Please always check details (especially opening hours) with venues direct when making plans as information can change. Over to Bethanie......


Child Friendly Cafes in North East England



I still famously remember the time my mum and I walked into a café, pushing my then one year old in the pushchair, to feel all eyes turn on us. “There are no high chairs”, I whispered to mum as we slowly backed out, hoping to appear as inconspicuous as possible. It was clear that wasn’t a “child friendly café”.

Blogging and the way I run my business evolves over time and after years of sharing ideas for the weekend ahead on my Facebook page, I switched it to a blog post recently and it has worked really well. This month, I am changing things up again and I am going to share a guide to events across the whole month ahead in a blog post.
