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 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…

Reel Cinema Wakefield is REEL good!

Reel Cinema Wakefield is REEL good!

Ric and I are polar opposites in so many ways. However one thing we have in common is we love a trip to the cinema! Watching films together has always been our way to spend some time together. Some day it’s anti-social but we love it. Now Lucas is getting older he is taking after us which is great! Unfortunately the cinema prices have gone up A LOT since Ric and I first began dating. This fact alone is making…

One Year Of Becka’s Bubble

One Year Of Becka’s Bubble

On the 1st of September 2018, Becka’s Bubble – parenting and lifestyle blog- hit the World Wide Web. Ex teacher, mummy blogger and, at the time, Stay At Home Mum. It was the next chapter of my blogging adventure. I began with this post which explains why I decided to start again. It was definitely a nerve wrecking time. I wasn’t sure if I should have just revamped by old blog rather than starting again.
