Sunday funday

Sunday’s are strange aren’t they?

Saturday’s are all about shopping, lunching, catching up with friends, partying and so on. But Sunday’s are just a pre-Monday build up, chores, food shopping, laundry, blah blah blah

Well this week I decided to go out for Sunday dinner! I know out for dinner, on a Sunday!

It’s so hard to find places that aren’t chains these days (well it is in my area). So when my friend asked me out to lunch we headed to somewhere I hadn’t been for a few years The Swan

But wait it’s now a chain also!

But we had some eating to do so asked for a table anyway, and I’m so glad we did

The inside was decorated so light and airy, with 3 separated eating areas. We were given 3. Menu choices, Main menu, fish specials and Sunday sepecials. 

As always I can’t decide on starter or desert so spoiler alert I had all 3! 

Starter of spinach soup   

Not my usual choice but damn tasty

What do you do when you can’t decide which meat to have with your roast, that’s right all 3  

And pudding had to be my new obsession salted caramel. The salted caramel, brownie and cheesecake sundae, but with no whipped cream extra salted caramel sauce, obviously 

 
All in all a delicious afternoon!

Which way’s which?

so as someone who doesn’t have children of her own be under no illusion that I enjoy adventure playgrounds just as much as the next. 

So on Sunday I went, along with a friend and her small person to Brimstage Maze near Birkenhead. 

This place has it all for ages 0-99, bouncing pillows, bouncy castle, space hoppers, swings, laser tag, obstacle course, zip line and 2 mazes. 

 
There are 2 mazes, a small one and a large one. As we had small person I tow we chose the small one. To celebrate 150th anniversary of Alice in Wonderland the themes were related. The larger one to find quotes from the story and the smaller one the find the mad hatters teapots. 

   
   
Good fun, even if we did only find 7 of the 10!

To recover and regather our wits we broke for tea, sandwiches and cakes at the onsite eatery. 

This was a fun and relatively inexpensive day out! Fun for all, young and old

Makers market make me happy

In an effort to try new things and go to new places and generally live my life a bit more I set of last weekend so sunny Knutsford.
A friend had noticed the event advertised on good old Facebook via another friend and mentioned going, and I was all in.
The event is held almost every weekend at 4 different Cheshire / Manchester locations ( for locations and dates click here ), we opted for Knutsford as it was most convenient.
Now I don’t know if the sunny weather was to blame but I had a wonderful time. The street was closed of and decorated with bunting and all of manner decorated stalls.

After a couple of hours we headed home, not before stopping at Tabley House for afternoon tea and a look round the chapel

All in I had a brilliant day and will definitely be returning in future
