On the borders of Worsley, Manchester, there is a hotel and golf course (some of you probably already know about it). It is quite a prestigious hotel and honestly, I’ve never visited prior to a few weeks ago. Mostly because I thought you had to be a ‘private club member‘ or just be really good at playing golf ha! Fortunately for me, I was invited to try out the new menu at the Grill in the Park restaurant within the Worsley Park Marriott Hotel & Country Club (along with some other bloggers and their family members) and boy, was I totally surprised!
Something you may not know about me is that I am a huge stationery lover. I love cute notebooks, different styles of pens, craft papers, adorable accessories. You name it, I’ve probably got a secret stash somewhere (remember the gel pen craze of the 00’s?) Something I have never tried before though, is chalk markers. When I was younger, I loved drawing and writing with chalk on the pavements and in the street (we lived in a cul de sac and it was gonna rain and wash it all away anyway) but now, chalk really goes through me. That is until Chalkola contacted me and asked if I’d like to try out their chalk marker pens, and the fun part for you guys, keep reading and you could bag yourself some!
I have been an awful blogger. I can only apologise, most importantly to my guest poster for this post Tilly. This month has met me with some down moods & slight health concerns, along with the non-motivation to do very much. I have struggled. But we’re not here to focus on that. I’m posting my Oh My Blog! Guest post (finally) and even though it’s mother’s day themed, I’m sure a bit of appreciation for our mums can be welcomed any time of the year.
I’ve taken part in different twitter chats for bloggers for a while now and something I noticed, was that even though there were some twitter chat infographics out there, I struggled to keep up with some still. None of them featured parenting chats (or at least, none that I’ve found). So I took it upon myself to create one with all chats I know of whether that be for beauty bloggers, lifestyle bloggers, parenting bloggers, fashion bloggers, book bloggers and more.
I’m always on the lookout for how to help my family and I with working on a tight budget. However, I’m always looking for ways to help us even more. Whether that is with; food, gifts, shopping, days out etc. I’m always switching where we shop for food due to whats the most affordable, most deals etc. but here are my basic methods for feeding a family on a budget.
