Out and About: The Hogwarts Express

In my latest Top 10 of Now post I mentioned that I had been back to the Warner Brothers Studio Tour in honour of thirtieth birthday milestones. Our original plan was to visit back in February, but just before booking our tickets it was announced that Platform 9 3/4 and the Hogwarts Express would be… Read more »

Out and About: Deal Castle

Whilst in Kent celebrating turning the big 3-0 we not only enjoyed discovering the glorious Deal cottages, we also had fun exploring Deal castle. Deal Castle is fairly prominent and obvious as you drive into Deal from Dover and is just across the road from the beach and the choppy sea beyond. Now owned and looked after by… Read more »

Out and About: The Bluebell Woods

I always have such… Read more »

Out and About: The Everyman Cinema

There’s nothing I like more than a night at the cinema. Comfy seats, good food and becoming completely engrossed in the latest offerings from the film world. Living in London there’s plenty of cinemas to choose from; Cineworld, Odeon, Empire and Vue but they are all so boring and similar. When I travelled in New… Read more »

Out and About: Ripley Common

A couple of weeks ago both Fi and I were at the parental abode for the weekend. As we were in the middle of half marathon training (eek!) we decided to head out on a run early Sunday morning with our Dad. The plan was to head out to Ripley and then run along the canal…. Read more »
