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…
Situated right next to St Andrew’s Church in Gallowgate, Escape Key is not only considered the best escape room in Newcastle but is also listed in the top 100 in the world!
Having never done an escape room before, I was so excited to be given the opportunity to visit with friends and see what all the fuss was about!
I absolutely love it when my Auntie and Uncle go on holiday. Not because I want rid of them, just because it means I get to help my Grandma look after my favourite little floof…Crunchie!
If you follow my socials you’ll no doubt be familiar with him. He’s a two and a bit year old Coton de Tulear who’s lively, playful and a little bit of a pain in the bum! We love him though, obviously.
Last month when we were looking after him, we decided to have a run out and took him to our family friends pet store – Kimi’s Pet Emporium!
Earlier this month Adam and I were invited along to a VIP evening at Master Debonair, the independent menswear retailer in East Boldon. The invite came through at the perfect time as we’d literally JUST been looking at suits that day ready for a wedding Adam is attending this summer – so we couldn’t wait to get there and have a look around!
They say diamonds are a girls best friend but you know what I love? Pearls!
Don’t get me wrong, if you want to buy me diamonds I’m absolutely fine with that (wink, wink) but I’ve always been drawn to pearls. I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that I’m a June baby and they’re one of our birthstones! I got a beautiful pearl ring for my 21st birthday and it’s nearly always on my finger.
I don’t know about you but when I was a kid I absolutely LOVED soft play areas and ball parks. I remember when I was a little too old to play in them, I’d still go along with my younger cousins and pretend I was ‘looking after them’ in order to go in and have a turn myself!
When I got the email inviting me along to the VIP launch of Inflata Nation in North Shields my eyes lit up. An indoor inflatable theme park for children AND adults?! Count me in!
