    Spring Forward To a Good Nights Sleep

    Spring has arrived and this weekend sees the clocks go forward, but what does that mean to insomniacs like myself? more disruption to ones natural body clock disturbed sleep patterns and early mornings but nature has a fab way of helping you to get a good nights sleep. This Sunday marks the start of British Summer Time (BST) – and hopefully the start of some sunnier weather – but while the promise of longer and lighter days will be a welcomed change, we will lose an hour of precious sleep. The clocks will spring forward on Sunday, March 25 at 2 am , meaning one less hour of sleep and…

Its close to home everyone i know has either been to to Manchester Arena or other arenas, me included my daughters go often as they get the bigger names compared to Newcastle. But will…

    our garden 2017

    Well havent done anything with our garden in a couple of years, we had all the rotten fences replaced with new 6-foot ones which make the garden feel bigger but more secure and private which we love. Last year we didn’t do much to improve the aesthetics and all we seemed to look  at was Green, the lawn which is a host to weeds could really do with a lot of help to make it a pleasure, the overhanging bushes and trees from the neighbour’s garden, which we really don’ mind especially as this year should be a bumper crop from the apple tree. We are booked in to have…

    Remembering our losses this Mothers Day

    As a child I was always playing with my dolls, for days and days I pretended they were my babies and I remember a couple of times I told my Mum I was poorly so I could have the day off school to look after them. I always wanted to be a mother, I loved babies and young children and didn’t imagine for a minute that this may never happen. I met Sue when I was 20, Sue had 2 children but from day one she always said if I wanted children she would support me and never stand in my way. As a lesbian couple this was never going…

    Dimplex Danville Electirc Fire- seeing is believing

    I was fortunate enough to review a new electric fire as our old one was barely sending any heat out the flicker effect had stopped working and being a silver surround it looked grubby. Enter the Dimplex Danville rather than just write about this fire i have posted a video review on you tube. https://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DSomv74JNugk&h=VAQGchlhM The fire is one of the Opti_myst range from Dimplex, The Opti-Myst gives a real flame effect not just flickering lights. for a full 3d effect. A simple idea but so much more effective than a normal electric fire giving a real flame effect without the smoke. How can Dimplex do this simply by adding a…

    Kingslodge Inn, Durham

    When i was asked if I would like to review the Kingslodge Durham, I jumped at the chance as love food as my body shape will testament to. Despite living in the Durham area i Hadnt heard of the Kingslodge previously but then I dont get out as much as i should. It is one of Durham Cities hidden gems in my opinion, located a stones throw from the city centre and train station, The Kingslodge inn is tucked away behind houses yet it is surrounded by some wonderful countryside known as Flass Vale. The Bar area of the resteraunt is dog friendly, so ideal place to stop off after…
