As someone who is used to eating out a lot, it’s safe to say I’m REALLY missing it during lockdown. Luckily some places that I love near me are still open for business (House of Zen I’m looking at you), as are places that I’ve yet to try like Kogarashi.
Spring is usually the season which fills me with optimism and energy but it’s fair to say I’ve been lacking in both lately and it’s had a real impact on my productivity – though I’m sure with everything going on in the world, I’m not the only one. I’ve abandoned the blog for a few months now after having no real motivation to write but after a little brainstorming session this weekend, I’m ready to jump back in.
I’ve decided to ease myself in with a nice little post on my TV show recommendations to watch during lockdown, inspired by Miss Catherine Mitchell’s post!
Here we go…
January always feels long and can be tough, but this year it really seems to have gone on forever. We’re so close to the finish line and in the final week now but if you’re still feeling a little blue, I’ve put together a list of things to do that have helped me feel better, and they might work for you too!
Happy New Year! 2020 is here and I don’t know about you, but I’m planning on making it my best year yet.
I’m a little late again this year on reflection posts as I’ve been taking time out to spend the festive period with family away from my laptop, but I am back and I am READY to give you my Burgess’ Buff Blokes of 2019 list!
If you’re unfamiliar with this, let me explain…
1. I put together a list of my top 25 sexy celebs of the year.
2. In order to be featured they have to have done something during the year.
3. Only 3 men from my previous years list can make it into this one!
Now that you know the rules, let’s get going with my #BurgessBuffBlokes2019
WARNING: This post may make you thirsty, please stay hydrated…
I’ve managed to see Cat Una play a couple of times in Newcastle now, both supporting Tom Williams, and really fell in love with her voice. On Friday 6th December, she’s releasing her brand new single ‘Wait It Out’ on Monomyth Records – I was given a little preview of the single and let me tell you, you’re in for a treat!
I decided to catch up with her ahead of the release to chat about the her music, festivals and what we can expect from her in 2020!
The first ever Angry Birds Adventure Golf course has opened at intu Metrocentre and Adam and I were so excited to be invited along for a game earlier this month, just after we’d visited the Arctic Experience. We both absolutely love mini/crazy golf and we’re both pretty competitive- there have been many times in our relationship already where we’ve fallen out playing games. Ok, I say ‘we’ but what I mean is that I’ve taken the huff because I’m a bad loser – oops!
So I have a question… WHERE has this year gone?!
I hate to be that person but seriously it’s November and it’s like I’ve blinked and missed the past few months. It’s actually quite scary. I wanted to do a little catch up on the blog as I feel like I haven’t had a good ole natter with you for a while. It’s been a month since my last post!
So what’s been happening…
Summer went so fast this year. I was away a lot either working at festivals or at them as a punter and it was awesome! I was meant to write about some of them, but maybe I’ll do that some other time…
I don’t know about you but I can be so stuck in my ways when it comes to eating out. I’m so indecisive that I find myself just going back to the same places for easiness unless someone else has organised the outing!
One thing I love about blogging though is that I’m lucky enough to be given the opportunity to eat at restaurants I possibly wouldn’t usually go to or know about, and it’s helping me get better at trying new places.
My most recent jaunt was to Beamish after being invited along to try food at the wonderful Stables Bar and Restaurant.
