My Weekend Away at Gunwarf Quays

My Weekend Away at Gunwarf Quays

  Last weekend myself and my husband packed our bags and set off for a very much needed weekend away, just the two of us. We started our journey on Friday morning leaving our home and heading for the local main line station (we decided not to drive), we then travelled to Portsmouth Harbour, travelling first class.  I will say at this point that my idea of first class is totally different to the train company’s version of first class. As we had just ourselves to worry about, we decided…

Love The Sales Review

Love The Sales Review

By now I think you all know how much I love a bargain, I have spoken about this many times in the past, and probably will in the future.  When I hear somewhere say they have a sale on, I have to look, as I do love the sales.

We also have, and take advantage of Amazon Prime, meaning we…

Shopping with children

Shopping with children

We have all done it, gone shopping with children, it is something we all dread, you just know that it will not be an easy shopping trip, and our shopping bill is going to grow as they see something they just have to have and promise they will love, when you know that they will probably have one mouthful and say they don’t like it. So what happens when we go shopping with our children, we get to the supermarket get our trolley and if you have younger children you pop…
