MCM Birmingham Comic Con

This year was the first time I visited the MCM Comic Con in Birmingham and I'm so glad that I did as it turned out to be a great family day out!

It was quite a last minute decision to attend but I decided to take my 8yr old as we usually go to Em-Con so he's getting used to these events and what they entail.

Levelling up to 40



After months of planning, countless meals out, celebrating with family & friends and travelling to Wales - I finally hit the 40 milestone that I had been dreading for so long. I say dreading, I guess that's an overstatement but I felt a lot of pressure to make the day AMAZING and I knew nothing I could do would love up to the momentous occasion.

I was wrong.

A few months before the big day, I started to toy with the idea of getting away for the weekend to do something crazy and a bit memorable. I wanted to mark the day and so I looked into finding a little getaway for us to celebrate in our own company. I've been wanting to walk up Snowdon for years, so we decided to try and find somewhere local so we could head up the mountain to celebrate. We found the most gorgeous little place in Bala, but on route there we started to hear weather reports about snow and flooding and when we arrived the owner confirmed that Snowdon wasn't going to be advisable on my birthday...

Weekending in the Yorkshire Dales


You know that point you get to in a week when you think "I just need a break!" well I hit that point last week and thankfully was saved by an impromptu trip to the Yorkshire Dales. I've never been to the Dales before but I knew I wanted a bit of seclusion and plenty of fresh air. Spoiler - Embsay delivered on both fronts.
