Valentine’s Day Meal for Two

I don't fall for the 'I don't like Valentine's Day because it's too commercialised' kind of statements-I fittingly love, LOVE, LOVE it! Why? Because it's a day to celebrate love whether that's romantic or otherwise and no one can have too much love (or red roses) can they?!

Meeting Father Christmas at Beningbrough Hall, York

We adore Beningbrough Hall, just outside of York, a short drive from where we live-it's one of those majestic baroque mansions with grounds that prides itself on being warm and child-friendly-and it is that. It also makes you feel utterly serene the moment you enter. An ideal antidote to Christmas mania.
