All the joys of spring …

It’s that time of year when I start to think about booking a holiday somewhere faraway, a new place to discover which is hopefully very HOT! 

It’s that time of year I tell myself I really should start to diet incase I book the afore-mentioned holiday and have to bear the old bod.

God forbid it’s any time soon I look like a bloody beached whale! [ one that’s in need of a desperate slick of false tan and some serious toning up]

It’s the time of year I long for and envisage the sun on my face [wearing nothing less than factor 50+ of course ]

It’s the time of year that I actually make an effort and shave my legs ! It’s been a while. I’m not sure ‘leg hair plaits’ are a thing … just yet !

It’s the time of year when snow drops and daffodils start randomly popping up , the sun rears it lovely head [occasionally] and little lambs are spotted jumping playfully around the fields. [ this is the very reason I stopped eating lamb, I could never quite get that image out of my head. It kinda spoilt my meat and two veg! ]

This week we actually experienced a couple of days of sunshine and you know what … it felt good. It actually felt like spring had sprung.

So what better way to carry on the spring  feeling than with a session of laughter yoga at Meadowhall.

Which is exactly what Sue & I did  this morning.  Continue reading

Stone & Taps big reveal …

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

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

A ”Walkies…” a little fashion, lots of flowers and a dog

I have a new friend.

She’s got 4 chunky legs, her fur is chocolate brown [ THE exact colour I want my hair] She’s friendly, with sad eyes. She tends to slather and dribble when she gets excited .

Yes, you’ve guessed it … my new friend is a lovely little Labrador dog called Mollie. We’ve been taking a-lot of walks together. I’m getting heaps of fresh air and my skin is benefiting from big doses of vitamin D. Mollie is getting much needed exercise and letting off steam; she has so much energy! We chat… well I say chat. I talk and she looks at me quizzically, wagging her tail, then runs off to find a stick. We are quite literally bonding over poo bags among the bluebells!

If I’m honest I’m more of a cat lady myself but I’ve taken this little lady to my heart. She’s adorable… even when she’s dribbling.
