Sea Otters, Raptors and Bears, Oh My!

Sorry if I'm boring you already but back to my little Alaskan adventure! We did actually have a sea day on the first day of cruising, but I'll tell you more about that later! For our first port, we were headed to Sitka!  I'd booked myself on a tour that included a variety of wildlife…

Cruise Life- part two

Despite a little over indulgence during the day (did I mention I think day drinking is the way forward?) I actually made it to the evening part of my first day on board Celebrity Infinity. Some people were not so fortunate! They clearly hadn't made the decision to change to a "safer" drink, I believe…

How to… Avoid the Gym

If you’ve read some of my previous posts, you may be aware I was lucky enough to win a free month at a rather nice gym in Doncaster a couple of weeks ago as well as a full body massage. It really is a rather lovely gym, it’s also being updated at the moment so it’s…

Varakei

So for those of you have been waiting with baited breath…. It’s time for my next little attempt at getting a life! There hasn’t been much going on lately so nothing to get too excited about! I did however book myself another solo adventure over New Year which I am crazily excited about! It seems…

Facebook winners do exist

I thought I’d write this post just to weigh in on a doubt that may be starting to niggle in people’s minds. I know we’ve all done it. All of us with social media accounts at least! How tempting are those “like and share” competitions and as time goes on, we enter more and more…

Get a Life- Part Two

So as you re-join me in my attempt at a blog, I’m quaking in my (shiny new) boots as I attempt to get my contraband skittles into the Sheffield Lyceum ready to watch Blood Brothers. Funnily enough it seems I was worrying needlessly; my ticket was checked and I strolled into the theatre in search…

Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons

So this week’s blogisode (not sure if that’s a thing but I’m going to make it one!) is about a trip to see my ultimate legend. The One. The Only. Frankie Valli (and the Four Seasons)!!! Although the Four Seasons weren’t the original quartet, they were still pretty spectacular and the main man was still…

Dancing the Night Away

As you join me this week, I'm getting settled ready for the wedding breakfast at Jade's wedding. Think Jade and Danny were really quite kind to me with the table arrangements as I had some great company!  Jade made us all emotional as she started the proceedings by doing her very own speech! She did…

Bag lady

Last time you joined me as I was attempting to sleep the night before Jade got married. Safe to say with the excitement of the next day in our minds, it was a pretty poor night's sleep! After a couple of hours of us all tossing and turning and pretending to be asleep, Jade finally…

Team Bride

If you are connected with me on social media, you may realise that a much awaited event has happened recently... A few months ago I told you all about the hen do of my lovely friend Jade. The time had come for the big day! After all the teas at Jade's spent discussing the wedding…

New beginnings

So I told some of you a few months ago that I had in fact put in my notice at my job of five years.  In summer the time came for me to leave but with it being the six weeks holidays, it didnt really kick in. Well as I write this post, my friends…

My final attempt

On the fifth day of my Celebrity cruise, we docked at Juneau. I may have mentioned i was rather nervous about this day. Having come all this way to see an orca, and so far having no success on my other trips, this was my last shot! On todays agenda was a whale watching excursion followed by a trip…

Cruise Life

Having enjoyed my little adventure in Vancouver it was time to pack up and move on the next phase of my travels. The hotel was amazing and I'd totally stop with the company (Sheraton) again if given the chance. My room was huge! Quite luxurious compared to my airport hotel at Gatwick so after a half hearted…
