Dining At The George and Dragon, Epping {AD}

Dining At The George and Dragon, Epping  <font size="3">{AD}</font>

I was invited to try the menu at The George and Dragon free of charge in exchange of a review. All opinions remain 100% honest and my own.

 

Last year I was lucky enough to be invited to visit The George & Dragon in Mountnessing in Essex to sample what they had to offer and I absolutely loved it – so much so, in fact, that I’ve been back a few times since for dinner with friends! So, when I was contacted by their namesake, The George & Dragon in Epping, and asked if I would like to visit them following their recent refurbishment, I jumped at the chance!

 

On the day itself I went along with Ben and my Dad as it was just a few days before his birthday (bonus daughter points for me) and, whilst in the car on the way there, Dad told me that he had actually been to The George & Dragon before  – over 50 years previously when he and my Mum were on a double date with friends! How cool is that?!

A Morning Spent Exploring King’s Cross London {AD-REVIEW}

A Morning Spent Exploring King’s Cross London  <font size="3">{AD-REVIEW}</font>

I was very kindly provided with this lovely day out free of charge by Hotels.com. All opinions remain 100% honest and my own.

 

It’s no secret that I love London. Despite working there Monday to Friday, I will always jump at the chance to spend some of my downtime there. Wandering the streets of the City is one of our favourite things to do; nipping down side roads and alleyways to find out where they lead and what treasures they hide. It’s been a while since we last spent a day exploring the City, so when I was challenged to explore King’s Cross and find out what it had to offer, it seemed like the perfect opportunity!

A Weekend In Stratford-upon-Avon

A Weekend In Stratford-upon-Avon

Back at the end of June, I woke as usual on a Friday morning to get ready for work. I hopped in the shower, fed and watered the animals, made a cup of tea and went back upstairs to wake Ben. However, this morning had a bit of a difference – I was surprising Ben with the news that he had to pack a bag as we were going away for the weekend to celebrate his birthday!

Visiting Hopefield Animal Sanctuary (Brentwood, Essex)

Visiting Hopefield Animal Sanctuary (Brentwood, Essex)

A few weeks ago we popped down to Hopefield Animal Sanctuary in Brentwood (Essex) to take a look at the amazing work they do and the animals they’ve given a second chance to. Despite it being fairly local to us, it’s not somewhere I had ever visited before and now I’ve been there I can’t help but wonder, what took us so long??

The Best Holiday I Ever Had? 2 Weeks, 2 Countries, 1 Happy Penny

The Best Holiday I Ever Had? 2 Weeks, 2 Countries, 1 Happy Penny

We recently got back from what will go down in history as one of the best holidays of my life. No, the best holiday of my life (to date). Granted, I have a whole lifetime of holidays still to come, but this one was truly special and for so many different reasons.
