On a trip to Cheltenham in Gloucestershire, you are bound to come across some top-notch restaurants. The daddy of these fine dining establishments is Prithvi Restaurant* and recently, we were invited to sample their new Autumn menu. Since our visit, it’s safe to say that we now understand why it’s rated so highly on Trip Advisor! Read more “Lunch with Prithvi Restaurant in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire”
Dave and I looked after Pepper, Dave’s parents’ dog, in September and it was such a success, that we have had her stay with us again recently!

Dave & I were meant to be spending a week at Newport in Pembrokeshire, Wales this year. However, due to an exciting development in our lives, we decided postpone the trip until next year. But to make things worse – as I was already sad to not be visiting a place that is incredibly close to my heart – my birthday was during that week. So, Dave offered – after I dropped some rather heavy hints! – to plan a surprise for my birthday anyway. Read more “Surprise Birthday Mini Break to Pembrokeshire, Wales”
One of my closest friends lives in Birmingham and every few months we catch up down my way or up her’s. This month, it was my turn to visit Caz and we decided to have a cocktail afternoon tea at The Malmaison.
Is there anything better than a lazy Sunday morning, followed by a big roast? In my eyes, definitely not! & on Sunday, Dave & I found the latter at The Peacock at Oxhill, a beautiful country pub in the Cotswolds*. Read more “A Cotswolds Country Pub: The Peacock, Oxhill”
