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.

Online Bingo - Don’t Knock It Till You've Tried It!

Online Bingo

Today, the choice of games that you can play online seems endless, so it may seem strange that so many people choose to play bingo over what might be more exciting games.

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!).

My Baby Shower

My Baby Shower

Last Saturday was the first official celebration of our expected arrival in June, who I will refer to as ‘Baby H’ - his/her actual nickname varies greatly depending on who you ask, but ‘Baby H’ is both applicable and fit for public consumption. Although my due date is actually towards the end of June (the 22nd to be precise), one of my best friends, who helped to organise the shower is expecting her own bundle of joy in April, so we wanted to arrange an early baby shower for me so that we could be ready for our new roles as Aunties in just a few weeks’ time!

Paris - Part Trois

Disneyland!

I had originally intended to cover my entire Paris trip in one post, but somehow it’s spilled over into three. Apologies if you’re bored to death of my ramblings, be assured that this is the final post and normal service will resume shortly.

The last two days in Paris were actually the two I was looking forward to the most. On the Wednesday morning Darren and I had booked a tour of Versailles for everyone as their joint birthday gift - beginning in January all four have their birthdays by the beginning of February, which makes thinking of gifts quite a challenge. This year we were able to kill all four birds with one proverbial stone by paying for a private tour of the Palace of Versailles. I should clarify, that when I use the word ‘private’, I mean it was just the six of us on the tour, not that we had palace to ourselves - Kim Kardashian I am not.
