An Evening at Jamie's Italian

on Wednesday, 22 July 2015. Posted in Lifestyle, Reviews

Jamie's Italian

Earlier in the year I was invited to spend an evening at Jamie’s Italian in Reading - never one to turn down a free feed chance to ‘expand my culinary horizons’ I happily accepted and started planning the evening. Since I had I received the initial invitation email while spending the afternoon with two of my Mum friends; discussing our mutual returns to work, nurseries, pushchairs and 1st birthdays, it seemed only natural to ask them to join me. My friend Caroline came along in her capacity as an ‘official foodie’ courtesy of her day job, while Anna joined us as “just a minion with an opinion”. (Jones 2015)

Zachary One Day Old

My waters breaking at 4:30 on a Wednesday morning was the abrupt beginning to the rest of my life.

My contractions followed shortly afterwards so we headed over to Frimley Park hospital to be examined. On arrival we were ushered into a side room and were quickly informed that we would be going nowhere as meconium was present. 

Creating a Wedding Album

Just Married!

It's been nearly four years since Darren and I tied the proverbial knot in August 2010. Given that timeframe you'd be forgiven for thinking that I would have had plenty of opportunities to create a wedding album, but it's the one job that I've yet to get round to doing.

Mya Lacarte Restaurant Review

Last week I had the pleasure of indulging in a mid-week dinner date with Darren at one of my favourite local restaurants; Mya Lacarte in Caversham. I first came across this independent culinary establishment as part of my 30th birthday celebrations last year, my friend Lucy (aka The Luxe Life) planned a surprise birthday meal for me having come across the various recommendations on TripAdvisor.

Center Parcs Babymoon

Center Parcs Babymoon

I'd been cajoling (nagging) my husband into organising a babymoon for both of us since the 20 week scan back in February. Really just an excuse for a weekend away somewhere, but sold as the last opportunity for us to enjoy each other's company without the addition of an extremely demanding third party (although I'm hoping that in the future this is where having enthusiastic to help grandparents comes into its own!).
