Redcliffe Farm – from Eggs to Hampers (and a bit more besides)

Redcliffe Farm – from Eggs to Hampers (and a bit more besides)

I'd be really surprised if there is anyone in the general area that hasn't heard of Redcliffe Farm. They have built a really solid reputation since they first established the shop in 2007 as THE go-to farm shop for quality, locally sourced fresh ingredients. The Cafe, is open all year round 7 days a week - open from 9am serves a perfect Eggs Benedict (not surprising given their origins - more later) but they are also renowned for a pretty scrummy Steak Pie too. Most of the favourites found in the cafe can also be found in the shop to…

Put your best foot forward.

Put your best foot forward.

Which to choose! I often wonder if guys have the same or a more challenging time getting footwear. I mean, we all know if a shop is there with footwear offerings, customers will come. Whether it's boots, shoes, trainers or sandals,, let's face it,, we like to try them on and check out what they look like in the little mirror strategically placed on the floor. Footwear shopping is something else for me. The first shop I go into, I usually see what I want, but just in case, I end up walking from one end of the town to…

Shopping for my man! 🤔

Shopping for my man! 🤔

Getting it right! When I get the chance to shop for clothes for my man, well, all I can say is YES! It's not that often that I get to shop for him, in fact, it's hardly ever. Usually, my guy knows what he wants, gets ready, sets off to the shop of choice, and well, that's it, he gets what he went for! Then, he's back home, feet up on the sofa, telly on raising his cup of coffee in his hand at me before I've had the chance to say, "what do you want for tea"! Today, however,…

Keeping Warm 🧣

Hats, Scarves and Gloves, matching or not? Passing the time, chatting with friends, listening to each other's points of view on specific topics can be pretty educational and thought-provoking. However, we all know we can talk about, well, just about anything! I was listening to my friend talking about her purchase of a new hat and scarf, she then added gloves into the mix, and it sounded like she had lost a penny and found a pound! "It's a matching set," she declared! So for the next 10 minutes, our conversation was about hats, scarves and gloves, which looks best,…

My Christmas Gift 🎁

A gift to me from me 😇 The thrill of going shopping can be a wonderful experience for me, in fact, I just love it! Especially when it comes to Christmas when it's as good a reason as any to treat myself, and as we say, I've been very good this year, thank you, Santa! So, after doing the housework, I jumped in the car and headed to town, parked up, threw my oversized bag on my shoulder and set off walking towards Westborough in Scarborough. A cold chill in the air reminded me of the time of year, and…

Dixons – Filey

Dixons – Filey

Has got the Bloomin lot! One of my wonderful friends had recently bought a house and was telling our group of friends, "if you are thinking of buying a present for me, can you get me a voucher from Dixons? I have seen the perfect oven in there; it's a SMEG oven", This was then followed by exciting tales of being able to whip up the perfect Christmas dinner and the obligatory pigs in blankets. Needless to say, her enthusiasm and multiple "it's amazing" made me chuckle because I'm not sure what my response would be if someone got me…
