A sprinkling of Christmas

A sprinkling of Christmas

With so much uncertainty, this Scarborough find has brought a much-needed sprinkle of Christmas joy today! As we were walking through Scarborough highstreet we couldn't believe it when we saw "Mr Beary" a 3 meter high lighting structure. We can't wait to see him all lit up in technicolour with the amazing Christmas lights surrounding him. You can imagine kids of all ages clambering for a photo with him when he is all lit up! Hello Mr Beary, can we have our picture with you please? 😍

This garden centre has everything you would need to transform your open spaces, but as a novice gardener who has been trying to embrace the grow your own movement, it is the people here that really has made an impression.

In fact this year, following some top tips, they did actually fruit this year and I had a bumper…

Nestled in the heart of Whitby is the Lady Luck Brewery that has been brewing delicious ale for many years. Now, I can't profess to be the ale drinker in my house, that is a role passed onto my willing participant of a husband, but if you haven't tried it before, it probably will surprise you! Ale isn't all about pairing with a packet of crisps and a pickled egg. No! Brewing has moved on, and so…
