Family dining at The Alchemist in Oxford

Beefeater Applecart Didcot

Eating out at Beefeater Applecart Didcot

January has to be my least favourite month of the year.  It’s cold, dark, often wet and just a let down after all the fun and festivities of December.  We’d had a really up and down week here last week.  A terrible start to the week, but my son had done really well at school…Continue reading Eating out at Beefeater Applecart Didcot

An evening at The Angel in Bicester

It’s not often I get to go out these days in the evening. With a husband that works over 80 hours a week, a social life is something I’ve almost forgotten!  So when an opportunity arises to have a night out with a friend I tend to jump on it, and that’s exactly what happened…Continue reading An evening at The Angel in Bicester
