    The Full Monty Review | AD

    Earlier this week I headed across to Manchester with my Mum to see the touring production of The Full Monty at the Manchester Opera House. SPOILER ALERT- They did not leave their hats on! We were kindly gifted the tickets for the opening night in Manchester and were thoroughly impressed with the show. Thanks to WeBlogNorth for organising! As it’s a touring production it’s going to be visiting plenty of venues across the UK, so you can keep an eye out for tickets! Sheffield Born and Bred The story as you may, or may not know, is set in Sheffield at the height of de-industrialisation, when the Steel works had…

    A Long Weekend in Dublin

    Ireland, the Emerald Isle. I’ve wanted to visit for absolutely years and when I was given a surprise trip for Christmas from Josh I was so excited. We headed across the Irish sea for a long weekend in Dublin last week and we loved it! Today I thought I’d give you an idea of what we managed to see and what my recommendations are if you’re heading over soon, especially considering St Patricks day isn’t that far away. Travel In terms of getting there I’d recommend flying unless of course you live over towards the ferry ports. We flew from Manchester airport and just about got there okay considering the…

    2019 Goals

I don’t like setting new years resolutions and I certainly won’t be beating myself up about not reaching certain targets. I see goal setting as more of a way to help myself check in periodically through the year. I’m going to lay out a few hopes I have for myself in the coming months, then I can look back and see if I need to refocus my attention as the months go by.…

    The Library: Food for the Soul

    Looking for somewhere to go out for a date night or a catch up with the girls? Have any of you been to The Library* at Attercliffe recently? I bet at this point you’re wondering what on earth I’m on about. Let me explain. This is in fact a review of one of Sheffield’s newest cafe/ restaurants rather than a ramble about the local library service. Now if you’re from Sheffield, I’m sure you’ve got some opinions about the area of Attercliffe. Known for being a bit rough around the edges, it doesn’t seem the typical place for a new hang out. However Attercliffe is following in the footsteps of…

    My Fitness Journey

    I bet you never thought you’d see a fitness post on this blog, I’ll be honest neither did I. However in the last few months I have really started to enjoy exercising and going to the gym. So today I thought I would share with you my fitness journey. I managed the first 21 years of my life without setting foot in a gym. It has been a running joke in my family that I am uncoordinated, lack sporting ability and am generally a sloth. However in the last few months I have really changed my perspective on exercise, and dare I say it, started to enjoy it. Frightened of…
