Tweet Eats: Australasia Spring Menu

A few weeks ago we headed to Australasia to try out their new spring menu. A fancy meal on a Sunday afternoon is pretty much top 3 in my all time favourite things to do so I was a happy bunny, despite the lack of usual multiple cocktails to accompany!

If you haven't heard of Australasia before, it's a subterranean pan-asian brasserie hidden beneath Spinningfields, it's a classic glossy Manchester restaurant with great sushi and a robata grill. It's a really relaxing environment and the perfect place to while away a Sunday afternoon.

Life Lately: A Very, Very Tiny Update

It's been a while since my last Life Lately update and quite a lot has happened since then...



We're having a baby!

For the last three months we've been keeping a very, very tiny secret. Well, it's getting less and less tiny by the week, it's currently the size of a lemon! In between Christmas and New Year, Joe and I found out that we were expecting a baby. Thank goodness for Dry January being the perfect excuse for me not to have a glass of wine at any given opportunity like usual!

We had decided it was a good time to start trying in autumn and it all happened rather quickly after that! After me being on the pill for over a decade we thought it would take quite a while but we were very lucky. After the initial fear of every single thing that could possible go wrong every second of the day and now that we've had our 12 week scan, it all feels a bit more real and exciting! We're due on the 30th of August, so expect to see me sporting a lot of moo moos over summer.

Tweet Eats: Miller & Carter

One of my aims this year is to spend more time with my family, I'll be honest it's not going that well so far (my bad) but I'm planning to change that! This week I'm taking a couple of days off work for my niece's birthday so I can see her, my sister and my mum, it's so important to me to be able to spend more time with them and try to ignore work(ish) just for a day or two.

Last weekend I got to spend the day with my mum too after the lovely people at Miller & Carter asked us if we'd like to review their new restaurant in Lowton (near Warrington), which just happens to be in between our house and my mum's, it's like they knew! 

Steak is our weakness so we were there with bells on.

Be My Valentine

I'll be honest, I'm not a Valentine's kind of girl. I don't expect to be spoiled rotten or taken out for a meal, we tend to just use it as an excuse to have an M&S dine in for two! But one thing I do love to do is treat myself to a few luxury bits and bobs that you can either treat yourself to or drop some hints before V day.

Chocolate Chia Pancakes Recipe

Chocolate Pancake recipe healthy

Coming up is one of my very favourite days, Pancake Day! Any kind of day that celebrates a carb, I am fully on board with.

In recent years we've doubled up to make a meal out of it with a savoury pancake to start and a sweet for pudding, my first choice? Nutella all the way.

This year we've started experimenting early as Joe and I won't be together on Pancake Day, he's going to Italy and New York in the next couple of weeks, rather jealous! We started as we mean to go on, with a pretty hefty stack. These are actually relatively healthy(ish...) so I thought I'd share the recipe for you to try out if you fancy.
