RECOMMENDATION | Wainhouse Tower, Halifax

20th May 2019

If you live in Halifax you’ve probably driven past Wainhouse Tower and not realised that for a few quid you can pay a visit and climb its spiral staircase.

Wainhouse Tower

It’s “just” 403 steps to the viewing gallery (great leg workout) and there you can take in the stunning sights over Halifax and beyond. It’s said that the tower, though originally built in Victorian times as a chimney, was instead used by its owner as a way of spying on his neighbours. Takes neighbourhood watch to a whole new level!

Lyla, Matt and I made it to the top in about 10 minutes and once you’re up there you can spend as long as you want looking out in the distance trying to spot well-known landmarks. Wainhouse Tower is only open to the public 4 times a year so it’s a good idea to plan ahead so you don’t miss them.

Also, it’s worth noting that you don’t need to book in advance but it’s cash payment only so make sure you’ve got some on you!

Easter Monday April 22nd
May Day Monday May 6th
Spring Bank Monday May 27th
August Bank Monday August 26th

Children’s Wellbeing | Kids these days – they’ve got it made – or have they?

I’m a primary school teacher and I’m a mum to a beautiful, bright and bubbly six-year-old. I witness the ups and downs of wellbeing in children every day. Every parent faces the same dilemma – how to ensure the wellbeing of our children – particularly from a mental health perspective in a world that is more pressured than ever in more ways than one.

REVIEW | Teddy Bears Picnic at Elements Coffee House in Derby

REVIEW | Teddy Bears Picnic at Elements Coffee House in Derby

I had already heard good things about Elements. Despite only just celebrating their first birthday, they’ve been nominated for two awards in Marketing Derby’s food and drink awards (Best Newcomer and Best Customer Service). Thanks to their beautifully curated Instagram feed they were firmly on my Girl About radar.

So when Elements got in touch to invite us to try their teddy bear’s picnic themed children’s menu I jumped at the opportunity. I can’t tell you the last time I enjoyed a delicious lunch out with my toddler. We have loads of fun but I’d pretty much resigned myself that civilised lunches at nice places were largely a thing of the past. I was intrigued to see whether this was the answer. In the week or so before, Lily was bubbling with excitement. I remained somewhat sceptical.

RECOMMENDATION | The Stratford Brasserie, Stratford – East London

Thursday night a couple of weeks ago and my Dad was in town. My step-mum had gone to an ABBA event at the O2 and he didn’t really fancy getting all dressed up like a Super Trooper, so we decided to go out for a bite to eat. I’d been to The Stratford once before when it first opened in the summer and was impressed with their Stratford burger, so thought it was worth having another look.
