A Sheffield Girls Guide to Malaga – Part One

As your aware , or maybe your not – I shouldn’t make such assumptions – I’ve just returned from a fabulous long weekend in Malaga with 4 of my best friends. We try and have a few days away every year .. and apart from the ‘wedding and baby years’ we’ve managed to achieve this!

We have experienced an amazing few days which flew by far too quickly. I’m missing those ladies already. I don’t think I’ve laughed so much in ages and it’s just what I needed ! Roll on next year.

There’s so much to tell you I thought I’d split the blog into a few posts starting with accommodation . Lots of you messaged me for details after seeing my posts over on Instagram stories … so here goes.

Stone & Taps big reveal …

On Thursday evening Sue and I tootled across town to the Stone and Taps [former Swim Inn] at 217-231 Glossop Road, Sheffield to attend the launch night.

It has undergone a fabulous makeover and it is looking great. There’s a garden theme running throughout with flowers and pitch fencing. Its a lot brighter than previous and very welcoming. I love the bold logo.

It was opened by the Lady Mayoress of Sheffield. There was a band performing a selection of catchy tunes , while waiters and waitresses walked around offering us slices of pizza, dough balls and Goose Island beer [a hop lover’s dream with a fruity aroma, set off by a dry malt middle, and long hop finish.] I can recommend them all.

Apparently there were chips too …but no chips passed these lips.

Not a bad way to spend a Thursday evening all things considering.. Continue reading

Marbella Diary Day 1 – the villa and first night out.

Hola,

Somebody once said that “the best therapy is time spent laughing with great friends” I’ve just had 4 days ‘therapy’ and it’s done me the world of good.

By golly have we laughed…

and then some.

We’ve partied (a lot) and for want of a better word I’m back home and I’m bloody knackered. Rolling in at 6 in the morning was bad enough in my twenties,  at 45 it’s a killer but worth the tired, fuzzy head.

As my mum often says …”your a long time dead. Why sleep when you can dance?”

Why not indeed mum….

So what was the occasion?

We flew out to Spain  to join Leigh in celebrating her 50th . This was actually back in May (little details – long story)

We booked a plush villa in the hills above Marbella for the weekend so we could all be together.

Let me introduce you to our home for 4 luxurious days … Continue reading
