Enjoying a meal together out as a family is a real treat. So you want to be assured good service, and very tasty food.  Our go to choice is the Italian restaurant Zizzi’s.  We visit our Nottingham branch of  the chain regularly for just these very reasons.

Portland Dorset : Beach Fun

Portland Dorset, is where we headed off to for our holiday this year.  It’s a small island, just off the coast of Dorset, very near to Weymouth. We had a view of the sea from our courtyard behind the cottage we stayed in.  Chesil Beach, was where we walked to see the sunset each evening. A mere five-minute walk away. Continue Reading

Getting Ready for Autumn and Back to School : Clarks Shoes

Not long now until school starts again.  Are you one of those parents that waits until last-minute, or plans in advance with all the back to school buying?  I tend to be fairly organised, I panic if I’ve not done things, and I think the summer holidays should be all about  relaxing  and having fun, not panic…well that’s the idea anyway.  This year I’ve had to be extra organised, as I’ve two at school, one of which starting secondary school, so its meant lots (a crazy amount) of new things needed to be bought.

Shoes were a breeze this year, as we (as usual) got ours from Clarks. We booked our in store fitting online.  I can’t tell you how easy that makes it.  You simply register on the site, enter your postcode, so it finds the closest stores to you.  Chose one of the store options.  We went for one in the town center so we could combine it with a trip to the cinema.  The slots are every 15 minutes, you just let them know your name when you arrive.  So simple! I even received a text message reminder. Continue Reading

Kindle Fire HDX 8.9″ Tablet : Review

I have a confession to make, I have become a little bit of a tablet and gadget geek.  The more I use them on a day-to-day basis, the more I seem to find they make life a whole lot easier, and more entertaining.  Up until now the main tablet I have used had been my iPad air.  I do own a Kindle Paperwhite, and when I travel it goes everywhere with me.  I liked the idea of combining my Kindle with a tablet, especially for when I’m travelling.  I realise there would have been other ways of me doing this, but I had heard so much about the new Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 I wanted to test it out.  See if it really was as good as they say it is.
