What an absolutely busy month April has been. The first half of the Easter holidays we were away on holiday. The second half we fitted quite a few things in and the whole month seems to have flown by. 

Other than watching Luca on Disney plus for what has felt like the 100th time this month I've watched a good few series too.


Bridgerton Season 2

I loved season one so had to watch the second season and I wasn't disappointed. The second season  is mainly focused on Anthony Bridgerton seeking to find a wife.

Anatomy of a scandal

Based on the book of the same name by Sarah Vaughan. Sophie's privileged life as the wife of powerful politician James unravels when scandalous secrets surface — and he stands accused of a shocking crime.

Hold Tight

Another series based on a book by Harlan Coben. When a young man goes missing soon after his friend dies, life in a tight-knit, affluent Warsaw suburb slowly unravels, laying bare secrets and lies. I personally feel its not one of the best series from Harlan Coben.

Emma (2020)

Based on the classic novel by Jane Austen. Emma is a self-proclaimed matchmaker who meddles in the love lives of her friends. Her misguided matches and romantic missteps lead her to find love that has been there all along. I've been meaning to watch it since the film came out and only just got round to watching it.


This popped up as a reccomendation and is what I'm currently watching. It was originally on BBC back in 2017 (season 1) and 2020 (season 2) but I've not seen it before. Liar is the story of two people who go on a romantic date which changes both their lives and those of their friends and families. Laura Nielson is a smart and capable teacher in the middle of a break-up, and she is set up on a date with recently widowed surgeon Andrew. However, the day after the date it is apparent that something has gone wrong, and the subsequent fallout rapidly spirals out of control, exposing the power of truth, deception and trust.

The first week of April we went away to Butlins Skegness. We had a great time, it was a busy holiday with lots to do. There were some great shows especially in the evenings, the arcades, funfair etc. We were pretty much exhausted by the time we went to bed every night. 

Gainsborough Model Railway Society 
One of Blake's favourite things is trains. Over the Easter weekend we took him to the Gainsborough Model Railway Society.  They don't have open days that often and it was the first time open since 2019. The next date they will be open is 18th June.

Gaia by Luke Jerram 
At The Collection Museum until May 29th is the awe-inspiring art installation, called Gaia, by the same artist who brought the moon to The Collection in 2019, Luke Jerram. It's definitely worth seeing if you get the chance.

Lincoln Safari Trail
During the Easter holidays there was a safari trail around Lincoln. We didn't complete it but we did however manage to spot a few of the grass animals about whilst we visited the city. Blake was happy to pose along with them too.

These are amazing they are a great size and super soft. They remove make up really well. I like to use a cleanser with them and not tried without. I like that the set comes with a wash bag to pop them in. 

Mars Raspberry Smash 
Saw these in B&M and was a lovely little treat. 
Bubble Blower 
Stuart spotted these in The Works and its a huge hit with Blake. Bubbles are always a hit and Blake spent at least an hour in the garden with it just the other day.
