KID-FRIENDLY WALK | Fewston and Swinsty Reservoirs – North Yorkshire

I love taking the kids up for a walk or a run around the Fewston and Swinsty reservoirs. The scenery is stunning and if you go early enough you can find baby deer on the pathways and the reservoir so still it looks like a perfect mirror reflecting the skyline. We love taking a picnic and sitting on one of the many benches around the pathways and then the kids love to spend hours skimming pebbles on one of the small beaches around Swinsty.

NEW OPENING | Cotswold Co. Harrogate

I was invited to the much-anticipated preview event at Harrogate’s newest furniture store, Cotswold Co. last week. Now, as I have been scouring the internet for over 12 months for both living room and dining room furniture, I saw it as some sort of Divine intervention and turned up, a little too excited!

RECOMMENDATION | Pots2Go, Harrogate

Pots2Go is a small, child, pet and baby-friendly ceramic café on Montpelier Parade in Harrogate. Youngest had been pestering me for a while to go and last week we had a morning free whilst the older two were at tennis camp. I saw my opportunity to tick a box and gain much needed Mummy brownie points.

RECOMMENDATION | Harlow Carr Gardens, in Harrogate

RHS Harlow Carr Gardens is situated just outside of Harrogate town centre and is the perfect place to run your kids tired whilst taking in a bit of nature. Its twisting and winding paths have a magical “Narnia” feel about them, as you walk through tunnels of ancient trees that seem to whisper delicious secrets to you as you pass.

RECIPE | World’s Tastiest Fish Dish

I was hungover when I was first introduced to this recipe. It was the morning after a raucous wedding and Hubby and I were having a full, grilled breakfast with friends. I mentioned I was cooking for some close friends the following week and it was then, in that moment that a wonderful friend suggested a dish she’d encountered; a fish recipe. It has morphed over the past ten years and been tweaked here and there and now, finally, it’s ready to be sent out into the world to change lives!

RECIPE | Chicken, Chilli & Sweetcorn Soup

My mother gave me this recipe some years ago now. I have no idea where she got it from, I just know that it is a delicious, easy and healthy dinner that Hubby and I enjoy at least once a week. Nutritious, as spicy as you want it to be, full of goodness (apart from one knob of butter) and really filling. It may only be a soup, but it packs a punch and is guaranteed to fill you up.

MENTAL MONDAYS | Dementia & My Crazy Mum

My mother’s mental health was always delicate. I say this now only because I can see it looking back through an adult’s eyes; a mother’s eyes. I certainly didn’t see it at the time. Growing up, she was just Mum. Strict, occasionally emotional and at times, challenging. She was highly opinionated and fiercely protective of her brood (my older brother, me and my sister). She could be emotionally erratic and never suffered fools, almost to the point of being embarrassing to a young child or teenager, struggling to find her place in the world.
