A trip to Yorkshire to see Granny Smith

We went to Bishop Monkton in North Yorkshire to visit Granny Smith. We had fun feeding the ducks, strolling around the town, shopping in Ripon and eating fish and chips at The Jolly Fryer which is the best fish and chips shop in the world! They are very child-friendly and the service is brilliant, as well as serving ridiculously tasty haddock and chips for £6.95 with some bread and butter and a pot o' tea. Propah!

We stayed at the lovely Crescent Lodge - they were so welcoming, the rooms were comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. We will definitely be back!

Ti-Jean's Birthday Party

Ti-Jean is three! We joined him for his birthday celebrations at his home in Forest Hill. The weather stayed mostly sunny, so we had lots of fun in the garden bashing the pinata, playing on his trampoline, eating delicious delicious food, playing Pass the Parcel, singing Happy Birthday in a variety of styles - operatic & Jamaican-style!
