Meadowhall – Hell or Heaven!

Is shopping a pleasure? .. I suppose that is the question.

Meadowhall is a vast shopping complex situated near the motorway, and close to Sheffield. It has grown and expanded with lots of organic development to offer a wide range of shopping, eating and socialising venues

To a shopper it is retail heaven…however to me a non shopper it is hell!

But the Meadowhall complex has brought lots of other opportunities with it, because of the attraction of Meadowhall there has been a lot of investment in surrounding areas for such things as Arenas, sport facilities. night clubs, casinos ect ect which offer additional facilities other than retail!

And these other facilities interest me… so in hind sight without Meadowhall these facilities would not have been attracted to this area…so I also agree Meadowhall is Heaven!!

My Wife Is Over The Moon

Its very true …when my wife is happy I’m happy!

As we have recently moved to the area my wife has been looking for a salon that she can trust and enjoy the experience. Well i’m pleased to say she has!!

Unique of Sheffield is a pleasure to deal with, my wife needed to find a salon in Sheffield that offer hair extensions, and she looked on-line and researched the salon, had a consultation and was confident of finding a great salon.
My wife’s extensions are amazing! She looks fantastic, my wife was over the moon.

Thanks Unique of Sheffield why not check them out! give them a call, visit them you will be impressed.

Bluebell Hotel near Bridlington

What a pleasure to find a village hotel/pub that has the desire to bring special events to this area. We were very fortunate to enjoy a weekend of culture at the quaint hotel. Within the grounds of the hotel they had transformed the gardens into a major event…hosting Paul Young and Katherine Jenkins. It was a fantastic weekend…there were a few hickups along the way with the organisers, but i’m sure they will become better at hosting events the more they do!

I believe that 2015 they are hosting Status Quo …. We will be getting our tickets when they go on sale!!

Around Yorkshire

These are some of my experiences out and about around Yorkshire!

Yorkshire offers historic and vibrant cities and towns such as York, Harrogate, Leeds and Sheffield and an amazing variety of countryside, from the stunning Yorkshire Dales to the breathtaking North York Moors, the impressive Yorkshire coastline and the growing popularity of David Hockney’s Yorkshire Wolds. Yorkshire has 2 National Parks – the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the North York Moors National Park as well as the North Yorkshire Heritage Coast of high cliffs, bays and dramatic headlands. It is no wonder that recent years have seen tourism in Yorkshire grow faster than anywhere else in the UK!


Sports fans and outdoor enthusiasts will find a wide choice in Yorkshire from cricket to rugby, football, horse racing and horse riding, motorsports, golf, mountain biking and walking the miles of footpaths, long distance trails and hikes. Le Tour 2014 Grand D├ępart focused the eyes of the world on this thriving and beautiful part of the UK.


The Tour de France comes to town

What a start to my life in Yorkshire… the Tour de France comes to town. I have never experienced the Tour de France before but it was coming to Yorkshire so I decided to make the effort. Off we went and headed off to Castle Howard to watch the start of the race. There were thousands of people watching this fantastic event…even some Royals!

The event was fantastic but unfortunately we didn’t actually see any cyclists!….we were too far away from the event and the crowds were immense….but we had a great time and really pleased we made the effort!
