Eleven Days of Separation

Eleven Days of Separation

Written 11th February 2020 I’m going to write this to document our separation however I’m unsure whether it will ever be published. It will depend on how things go and whether Ric is happy with me publishing it. I’m going to write it anyway. In times of stress, I find getting my thoughts out in my writing very helpful.  Let’s start at the beginning… Eleven days ago, on the 1st of February, my husband and I decided that our marriage…

AD | Jack’s Supermarket

AD | Jack’s Supermarket

I was partial to a bit of Supermarket Sweep with Dale Winton when I was younger. Therefore, when Jack’s Supermarket got in touch as asked if I’d like to work with them I was quite excited! Immediately images popped into my head of me running about the Jack’s Supermarket Wakefield, throwing random items into my trolley and the odd blow-up banana too. The reality wasn’t quite that (social distancing and the people of Wakey thinking I was a madwoman) but…

Lockdown Wins

Lockdown Wins

The CoronaVirus pandemic has been something that many will never experience. It’s something that our children will be telling their grandchildren about. Their grandchildren will learn about at school and talking about how when Grandma Becka had Covid 19! Lockdown 2 was dominated by this and being apart from the kids. With school still open it’s a little different to Lockdown 1 and that’s the one I was to reflect on. It doesn’t bare thinking about the tragedies of the…

Wakefield Walks

Wakefield Walks

The Corona Virus is something that will be making history. Our children will tell their grandchildren about the time that the country stopped, parents stayed home and we spent a lot of time playing and making memories. In times like this, you have to try and see the positives. I’m actually making a list of achievements in lockdown but that’s for another post. Today it’s walks for children in Wakefield! I wanted to share my appreciation for the area we…

2020 Goals

2020 Goals

I’ve been a little late on the 2020 goals front this year but I really wanted to post my goals today, the 17th of January. Why? Why it’s officially the day that people give up on their New Year’s Resolutions. I’ve said in previous posts that I don’t set resolutions, I set goals…but still, it’s a good day to post it. Goals are more positive in my opinion. Resolutions always seem to be negative…”I will stop….” I’m not going to…”…

Fun At Calypso Cove

Fun At Calypso Cove

For the final weekend, before Lucas returned to school after the Christmas holidays, we spent a lovely morning at Calypso Cove in Barnsley Metrodome. If you’re looking for swimming in South Yorkshire, it’s the only place to visit. It’s a leisure centre that I have fond memories of. From visiting with my Dad when I was little (and very different!) to watching my nieces win gold medals in acro gymnastics! Calypso Cove has adapted and changed over the years and…

Microblading – All You Need To Know!

Microblading – All You Need To Know!

Microblading is a form of semi-permanent makeup. It involves a small handheld tool made of several tiny needles that are used to add semi-permanent pigment to the skin. It is a technique that was discovered thousands of years ago. The superfine microblade creates lines in the skin that flow in the same direction as your own eyebrows then pigment is added to give the colour. 

Review: The Castle Wakefield

Review: The Castle Wakefield

Wakefield is my hometown. Apart from a stint at University, it’s the place I’ve lived all my life. During this time there have been certain pubs and restaurants that we’ve been back to time and time again. The Castle in Wakefield is one of those places! I was excited and intrigued to hear that they were closing for refurbishment. Therefore you can imagine how delighted I was when I was invited to visit! My favourite type of pub is one…

Party planning in my home town of Wakefield. It sounds like a fun job doesn’t it? I love organising things.
