Afternoon tea Β πŸ°β˜•

I love Afternoon tea & I know loads of you guys do too so I thought that I would share my most recent Afternoon tea experience with you. 

We went to a place called Suffolk food hall that has a cafe, farm shop, garden centre & restaurant on site (amongst other things!) There’s lots going on there but it’s a lovely place. 

The decoration in the restaurant is lovely, it’s nice & bright. I love the white wood painted ceilings, Sandy brick walls & restored beams. 

The view outside the large windows is so lovely too! You look out onto the River Orwell & the cow fields too.

Here’s what we had for Afternoon tea…

Bottom tier:

  • Mini brown roll with Ham & mustard
  • Mini granary/seeded roll with smoked salmon & cream cheese 
  • Mini white roll with cheese & pickle
  • Mini cheese & leek tartlet
  • Sausage roll 

Middle tier: 

  • Large Fruit scone with clotted cream & raspberry jam
  • Carrot cake slice with cream cheese frosting.

Top tier:

  • Mini chocolate & caramel shortbread
  • White chocolate chip cookie 
  • Mini shortbread

& of course lots of English breakfast tea.

My mum doesn’t like chocolate so she was given a shortbread, however, she does eat white chocolate so I gave her my white choc chip cookie and I had her plain shortbread as I LOVE shortbread. 

Me & mum both work at the same After school club and we arranged this afternoon tea for our friend (who also used to work at the after school club) as it was her 30th Birthday this year! We had a lovely time 🎈

I really enjoyed this afternoon tea as it was a bit different to the last one I had (check them out here: Patisserie Valerie ) as the cakes/biscuits were different & really tasty! I especially enjoyed the chocolate & caramel shortbread, it was literally melt in the mouth πŸ‘Œ

The only thing I feel could have been improved was having a variety of breads for the savoury section instead of all rolls & a little bit more filling in these. 

Cost: Β£14.50 each & bookable in advance.
I hope you’ve found this useful 😁

Until next time,

EASTER! 🌼🐣πŸ₯

I havn’t done a blog post about something I’ve done in ages! I love reading those sort of posts myself (So I hope you guys do too!) Plus they are nice to look back on and reminisce. 

My hubby had Friday off of course which was a nice treat so we decided to make the most of the day and do as much as we could together and it was soooo nice.

Good Friday 

So we started off the day with a super yummy cooked brekky, a lovely Friday treat as usually we would both be at work and wouldn’t have time for such an indulgent breakfast.

After that we didn’t have long before the film we had decided to see at the cinema was starting (Beauty & the Beast!!!πŸ₯€) As we live close to our local cinema and the sun was shining we decided to walk.
Of course the film was amazing (I’d already seen it once!) But Tim also enjoyed it too.

We were getting a bit peckish again by the time the film had finished so we had a cheeky Nandos, because why not! It’s a bank HOLIDAY after all, treat yo self!

& the fun didn’t stop there, oh no. Next stop was back home for a spot of Harry Potter Monopoly (Yes you heard right!) 
My very clever and lovely husband designed and made this for me for my birthday a few years ago as offical Harry Potter Monopoly doesnt exist. It’s amazing.

In the evening we decided to grab a drive thru Starbucks from the new one in our hometown and head to our local bowling alley. The Starbucks was beaut. πŸ‘Œβ˜• 

We had three games of bowling (Tim won best of three) and then we headed home.

A very GOOD Friday! (Sorry, not sorry!)

Easter Weekend 

Saturday

We completed our usual 5k Parkrun first thing Saturday morning, insert horrendous picture here ⬇

Once we had done that we went our separate ways to freshen up and get ready to go to Lowestoft. Tim’s mum & Dad have a holiday flat there so we are staying for the Easter weekend. 

We arrived around 2 o clock and settled in before heading to the shops to grab some dinner supplies. 

We then headed to the beach for a play & the arcades too!!!!! Seriously coooool.

Later on Me & Noah got creative and made some yummy chocolate Eatser treats…

& we cooked and ate dinner, watched BGT and played games in the evening 🎲

Easter Sunday 

First things first, EASTER EGGS!! 

We discovered the little cafe over the road from the flat is open on Easter Sunday so we headed over for breakfast… 

…unfortunately everyone else had the same idea!! Looks like they are the only place open for business on Easter Sunday, in Lowestoft.

Whilst we waited for our food we took a walk!
Oh I do like to stroll along the prom prom prom 🐚🌞

Once we were suitably full and wind swept we headed back for more Easter frivolity ie an Egg hunt & an Egg and spoon race.

For the rest of the afternoon we chilled out before heading back home.

Our family has an Easter tradition of a Chinese takeaway in the evening on Easter Sunday (Yeah it’s random I know) Don’t hate us cause you ain’t us! 

Jealous, right?! I love a family tradition. 


What do you guys do for Easter? 

Happy Easter! πŸ₯🐣🐰

Until next time,

My favourite Slimming World snacks!Β 

As you may know from previous posts (or not? hello if you’re new πŸ‘‹) I follow the Slimming World (SW) plan. We shop at Aldi and they do amazing snacks & treats that are great on SW so I thought I would share with you my favourites!

So here they are…

Let’s start with savoury as I have less of them:

  • Cup Shotz. This is Aldi’s version of  a mugshot and its 100% free! The chicken and sweet & sour flavours are free, not all are.

  • Aldi’s crisps are amazing! The cheese curls are 3 syns and the melts are 4 syns. They make such great snacks & are excellent value for money too.

Next up, Sweet treats:

  • Brooklea light yoghurts. These are sooo tasty and free. I only discovered these on our shop today and they are fab. I picked them up in vanilla and toffee flavour. (These are free a couple of the flavours are 0.5 syn) 

  • Crispy oats & honey granola bites. These are fab with a tea or coffee, crispy, oaty and delicious. 

  • Sweet and salty popcorn. This is so yummy and great as a snack or for the cinema. I love the combo of sweet and salty and this big bag is 6 syns. These are also available in multipacks and those bags are only 2.5 syns each!!

  • These groovy bars are a delicious chocolatey biscuit fix to satisfy those sweet cravings. These are 6 syns each.

So those are a few of my favourites! I hope you’ve found it useful and discovered some yummy treats that you can pick up from a local supermarket. 

I thought I would quickly mention some Easter favs and their syn values, there are a few that you can enjoy on plan and to me this is amazing, diet? What diet? 

  • Cadbury creme eggs, 9 syns each.
  • Cadbury mini eggs, 1 syn each.
  • Malteaser mini bunnies, 3 syns each.

Enjoy πŸ‘Œ & don’t forget to treat yourself!!

Until next time,

Get to know me tag: 25 questions β‰

That’s me πŸ‘‡

Let’s get into the questions…

1.What is your middle name? My middle name is Amy. I’ve got a short middle name as my first name, Roseanne is quite long.

2. What was your favourite subject at school?  My favourite subject at school was Media Studies, I loved it, still do. I took it for GCSE after I had been to a taster session and enjoyed it and I ended up finding that one subject I could just do. I got an A in my GCSE and decided to take it for A level too which was awesome and so much fun.

4. What is your favourite song at the moment? I have a couple, ‘Giants’ by Take That and ‘Play that song’ by Train 

5. What is your favourite food? Chocolate. Haha! This is hard because I’m such a foodie but I would probably pick mushrooms, cheese & chocolate.

6. What is the last thing you bought? This was probably when I went to Primark on Friday. I picked up a few different bits there, clothes, accessories, home stuff etcπŸ‘

7. What is your favourite book of all-time? Harry Potter. All of them. The first one is very magical and where it all began though so if I had to pick one that would be it.

8. What is your favourite colour? GREEEEN.

9. Have you got any pets? YES! I have two lovely guinea pigs πŸ’š Mine is called Remus (after Remus Lupin the HP character) and Tim’s is called Captain. They are brothers and super lovely xx 

Remus is the greyey/brown & ginger one and Captain is the black & ginger one.

 10. What is your favourite perfume? I love ‘Intimatly Beckham’ by VB but this has been discontinued 😦 So if I can’t get hold of that I also really like ‘Oh Lola’ by Marc Jacobs.

11. Are you married? As you’ll know, if you follow my blog, I started this blog to document our wedding planning. So, yes I am β™‘ 

12. How many times have you been out of the country? I have been out of the country a few times, if you count England then I’ve been to Wales, Ireland & Scotland too. Abroad I have been to Rhodes in Greece, Lille/Paris in France, Austria, Amsterdam, Venice/Florence/Rome/Bolonge/Sardinia in Italy and Tenerife & Lanzerote in the Canary Islands.

13. Do you speak another language? Nope. We obviously learnt another language at school, French! But I was really rubbish and I didn’t take French any longer than I had to.

14. Do you have any siblings?  I have two sisters. I have a twin sister called Sarah who is 13 minutes younger than me and an older sister called Charlotte who is 5 years older than me.

15.  What is your favourite shop? Without a doubt it would have to be Primark. I love shopping, especially for clothes and it’s my fav clothes shop. I also really like Superdrug, H&M, Lush & Paperchase. 

16. What is your favourite restaurant? It’s gotta be Nandos, I love it. It’s so tasty and I liked it before I started doing Slimming World and I love that it has great options for when your on or off plan. 

17. What is your favourite blog? I love the blogs of the Youtubers I like to watch, Zoella and Tanya Burr in particular. I also really like Poppy Deyes blog as she covers lots of topics that I’m interested in such as fashion, home decor and baking/cooking.

18. What is your favourite movie? This question creates a similar answer to my favourite book… Harry Potter. All of them. But again the first film is where it all starts, is so magical and is so loyal to the book that I just love it.

19. What is your favourite tv show?  I love Friends, it never fails to make me laugh no matter how many times I have seen it. I also really enjoy soaps such as Neighbours/Home&Away/Eastenders etc. I love crime dramas such as Broadchurch/Line of Duty/Midsummer murders and me & my husband love watching things on Netflix such as How I met your mother, Pretty little liars, The Big bang theory so tbh I can’t choose!! It really depends on my mooooood.

20. Pc or Mac?  This is a bit of a random question but I’d definitely say PC as I have only ever had PCs and I would only get a PC. I loved using Macs when I did media at school but apart from that I like my good old PC. 

21. What phone do you have? I have the Samsung S7 in Pink/Rose gold. 

22. How tall are you? I am 5ft 5 inches.

23. Favourite country you’ve visited? Italy. I don’t even need to think about it. It’s amazing, the best and we love it. It’s a beautiful country, absolutely gorgeous, SO much to see & the food is phenomenal. Venice in particular is my fav part of Italy, It’s like nowhere else you’ll ever visit. 

24. Can you cook? Yes! I love cooking. I also really enjoy baking too (especially the eating part) I think that’s why I love cooking so much haha. I really enjoy creating something but I also know it’s going to result in me eating which is always awesome πŸ˜‚
