Bridgestone: Chase Your Dream, No Matter What

A little while ago I went to an event with Bridgestone. This was primarily to find out about their Driveguard Tyres but it was also about the ways they are working with schools and sports and various sponsorships, including the Olympics.

Feeling Calm #73

For my birthday last year I was given a great book ‘Calm’ and a journal from my friends. To help me find some calm in my life and to de-stress a little. I have been writing in my journal everyday since and on Wednesday’s (or late on a Tuesday) I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites.

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is all about getting ready for L starting school.

Wynyard Hall – Our Luxury Weekend

Like every parent we crave a bit of time off, so when Wynyard Hall asked if we would like to stay I grabbed the opportunity to get L off to his grandparents and booked some time in their Spa!!

Wynyard Hall
Such a view

Wynyard Hall is in County Durham, so a fair old journey for us, but we were yet to celebrate our wedding anniversary and love the area having recently been on holiday nearby so it was perfect for us. I am so glad we made the journey. It is seriously the most luxurious weekend I have ever had. EVER.

BRIO Police Station – Review

L adores his train set. It’s a lovely wooden one, so fits BRIO and loads of other brands. We have added to it over time and it’s getting pretty massive but when we were offered the chance of review the BRIO Police Station we jumped at the chance.
