My Night at McDonald’s

I’ve never been one to shy away from taking L to McDonald’s. If we’re travelling it’s perfect and he loves it as a special treat. There’s one everywhere you go, you know what to expect and it’s always great value. I was really excited to be invited along to a blogger event at the McDonalds by Norwich Airport.

Win a Great Pickles and the Pictures Prize

Pickles and the Pictures

Edit

As you are all aware over the weekend we heard about the sad passing of Barry Norman. 

I’d had this competition planned for some time and it was all pre written and scheduled to go. I was away over the weekend with very limited connection and didn’t actually hear the news until you guys started to comment on this post. 

In any other circumstance I would have of course cancelled the competition, but as I was away I couldn’t. I certainly don’t want those who have entered to be at a disadvantage. So after some discussion we have decided to carry on with it. 

I certainly don’t want to seem insensitive and I whole heartedly apologise to anyone who is upset by this. It is not my intention. 

I would ask that any comments are kept in their current, beautiful, thoughtful vain.

On a personal note I would like to say just how sad I was to find out about Barry Norman’s passing and I know he will have left a lasting legacy. I can’t quite formulate the words I want to about this. So I shall leave it at that.

Outdoor Entertaining

There are so many things I love about summer. One of those is a bit of outdoor entertaining. A barbecue with friends. A family get together. Or just eating your lunch in the garden. There are a few things I have found so far this summer that have helped make things that bit more fun.

Today it was just the two of us, but we still love to do the whole entertaining thing
