Liverpool Bloggers Ignite Event

Hello Lovelies!

A few weekends ago I had the pleasure of going along to a wonderful bloggers event held in Liverpool that was organised by the lovely Ruth of ruth-writes.co.uk

I wanted to go along in an effort to get myself enthusiastic about blogging again, give myself a bit of a kick up the backside to actually start working on posts, improve the look of the blog, pick up some tips and meet up with some local bloggers.

Blooming Skull Coffee

Hello Lovelies!

“I never laugh until I’ve had my coffee” – Clark Gable

Something that bugs me about the Wirral is its severe lack of decent and funky independent places for a good cup of coffee.  There’s a few grubby Costa and Starbucks dotted around but I absolutely loathe visiting them.  Seriously, they bug the life out of me, no one ever seems to delegate in those joints, there’ll be 5 behind the counter fighting over themselves to serve whilst the tables are piled high with used mugs and plates.  I mean, who wants to sit at a sticky table, knee deep in crumbs with a Mug the size of St John’s Beacon complete with spilt coffee stains dripping down the sides?  I’d much rather enjoy an aromatic cup at a place where people really take their time and effort to make my daily dose of caffeine!  After all, aside from a slight partiality to Eastenders, Towie and Peanut Butter it really is my only vice!

Christmas @ Gordale, Burton

Hello Lovelies!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas isn’t it?  There are already quite a few houses near us that have been decorated with loads of lights, some have been up since November!  I’m sorry, but November is far too early for me!  When I was little my parents never put the decorations or Christmas Tree up until after I’d gone to bed on Christmas Eve, they’d tell me that Father Christmas and The Elves had put them up during their visit to deliver my presents!  I’d go to bed, full of excitement, having left a mince pie with a glass of whisky for the bearded gentleman and a carrot with a saucer of milk for the red nosed one!
