Pasta Pia Review!

I have driven past Past Pia on London road numerous times, and it looks a pretty interesting place. If you haven’t seen it, just head to Aldi on London Road by Chalkwell Park, and its right next door. It is a very funky looking Italian street food joint, which I have been meaning to try for a long time. But I was a little nervous; I've never eaten in a restaurant on my lonesome. The closest I have ever come to this is a sandwich and bottle of pop in Pret, but most people are there alone, so it doesn’t feel awkward.




ROBS RENOVATION - THE SOMME OR GLASTONBURY

I thought it was about time that I updated you on progress (yes there has been some) on my renovation and extension works at home. The loft conversion is pretty much done. The stairs are in, the windows are in, the plaster board is up and the roof is finally water tight!
I must admit that it is looking fantastic and we are really pleased with it so far. We chose a larger window to the back and a bigger Velux window in the front and it has made a huge difference flooding the room with light. When they were building the room as well we managed to push the ceiling height up by a further 10cms and it just gives an overall more spacious feel. We can’t wait to get up there.

If you've never heard of the word, it's not really got a direct translation into English - it's more a concept, a fundamental part of Scandinavian culture, that means 'cosiness' with friends or loved ones, with nice food and drinks. How great is that?!

WE HAVE THE BEST OF EVERYTHING....

Since moving to Leigh on Sea around 18months ago, I've known I'm pretty lucky. I didn't need that survey to tell me that it's one of the best places to live in the UK. And with a toddler, it's a dream. So much on offer, from all the amazing classes, activities and groups, to the most amazing outdoor entertainment provided by the beaches and local parks.
Me and my little are out and about, A LOT. Partly because there's so much to do, and partly as we just can't tolerate  being at home for too long...
