I was invited down to try the meny at The George and Dragon Mountnessing in exchange for a review. All opinions remain 100% honest and my own.
One of my greatest pleasures in life, other than laying on my sofa and morphing into the comfy little potato I am, is going out for something to eat. Generally, I will always favour eating in a pub to a restaurant, I’m definitely more of a low-key, comfy venue lover rather than something a bit more swanky, so when I was asked to pop along to The George and Dragon pub in Mountnessing I jumped at the chance.
On my birthday last year I set myself a task to visit 12 new places by the same time this year and, with the striking of midnight and saying goodbye to the absolute mess that was 2017, I promised myself that 2018 would be full of happiness and adventure. So far, so good – 2018 has seen a lot of smiles, a lot of laughs and my calendar is full of exciting times ahead, the most recent of which was a weekend in Devon.

It’s the first payday weekend of the year and you can hear a collective sigh country-wide as everyone finally has a bit of cash in their pockets. With most of us getting paid prior to Christmas it felt like a long old month, but all of that’s in the past now and if you’re planning to spend some dollahhhhs this weekend and treat yourself to a night on the town DO I HAVE A RECOMMENDATION FOR YOU.
We were very kindly provided with these tickets free c/o Box Office UK. All opinions remains 100% honest and my own.
Despite living close to and working in London, whenever I get the choice of a night out or a weekend of fun, it’s always my go-to.
With amazing architecture and restaurants, cool bars and an endless supply of activities, we’re spoiled for choice when it comes to planning a day or night out in the Big Smoke, however, one thing we never seem to opt for is going to the theatre. There’s no real reason for this, it’s just not something that ever springs to mind.
I think I could count on one hand the amount of times I’ve been to the theatre in my lifetime – The Importance of Being Earnest, Betty Blue Eyes, Jersey Boys, a panto and a Sooty & Co show which I still remember so well despite being pretty young when we saw it. (We were up in the high seats and could see the man with his hand up the puppets’ backsides, but it was still bloomin’ magical as far as we were concerned).
As you’ve probably gathered from the posts of this week (read those here, here, here and here), I absolutely loved Amsterdam but I’m all too aware that in the short space of time I was there, I only managed to scratch the surface of what the city has to offer and there is so much more to do.
With this in mind I’ve already started doing some research for a return trip, hopefully next year, and have put together a little list of things I want to do in Amsterdam when I’m next there.
