This plus that equals…. Christmas stress

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 the stresses of Christmas.

Christmas Stress
My Christmas Tree

These are all entirely of my own making and overall Christmas is still my favourite thing ever, but I don’t want you to think that just because my Instagram is filled with elves and crafts there hasn’t been a serious amount of gin and crying in the kitchen involved as well.

Our day at Beamish

When we went on holiday with Verdant Leisure we made the most of all County Durham had to offer, including a visit to Beamish. Well two actually! So I thought I’d write about our experience.

Our Visit to Castle Acre

Earlier in the year I treated us to English Heritage membership. To be fair it was a no brainer. Membership for two adults, with L free, is £30 in Tesco Clubcard Vouchers. So it was next to no money. L loves castles, English Heritage have a lot. It’s free days out for a year.
