Last night saw me meet up with two old friends, Carlie and Nicola for a much needed girly night.
My most favourite opera of all and the very first my mother saw in her teens, made for an extra special evening at The Grand in Leeds for Opera North's epic operatic and most tragic love story, La traviata.
My husband Peter is pretty much a genius behind the camera, this much you probably know (well those of you who follow my blog regularly at least). I'm not too shabby myself, but work life sure is easier with a personal paparazzo to snap away for this here blog. No selfie-sticks needed here!
Saturday evening saw me take out my favourite lady, my Mum, for a night at the opera-Opera North's 'The Marriage of Figaro' to be precise for a spot of culture in a spotty dress!
Although I was born in Leeds and we've now lived in Leeds for nearly 4 years after many years in London, we are still discovering new happy-making places in this beautiful part of the world for all the family.
My Dad George is an award winning chef, founder and owner of a group of restaurants The Olive Tree in Leeds. A dab-hand at Christmas dinner, here he shares his tips to help make your Christmas feast, amazing!
So we'd not attended a film premiere for a while (hard life huh) and then two come along at once! I know!!! We attended the glittering world premiere of Paddington last week at the Odeon Leicester Square and before even hitting the publish button on the post about it, I'd received an invite for the Get Santa premiere, the following Sunday!
Yesterday was Thanksgiving for my US and Canadian friends and I'm proud to write that a large part of my readership are now actually based in America. I've always had an affinity with Americans, my closest friends at Uni were from LA, New York and Chicago and I miss them all madly (thank goodness for FB and the rare London or LA get together).
After a dreamy introduction into cacao cuisine.
This Sunday I turn 34 and on the 10th my blog turned a whopping 4! Honest Mum was officially born on the 10th of November in 2010 but like to celebrate my very FIRST POST along with my birthday!
Fun at Trinity Kitchen.
Those who follow this blog know that I love a good pamper session and that's exactly what I had last week thanks to Allertons in Leeds!
