Review – We were invited to the Cookhouse and Pub to try their Festive Menu with drinks

We are well and truly in the Festive season, and go to any local pub or restaurant, and it’s highly likely you will see their Christmas menus being advertised. So when Cookhouse and Pub invited us to our local restaurant in Northwich to try their Festive menu, it was a chance to enjoy a much needed evening out with the husband.

I didn’t get around to writing up my Little Loves post at the end of October, and to be honest life was still in limbo with my health worries. BUT I finally have a diagnosis now, and once I find out the root cause of my breathlessness, I can hopefully start to recover and get my life back on track. To be honest the past few months have been a blur of hospital appointments and worry, but I did get to enjoy six wonderful days in the Greek sunshine which was amazing.

It is the season of giving and I would be delighted if I found this piece of jewellery under the tree on Christmas Day. The Whale necklace is a simple but elegant style, and has been created and crafted by the husband and wife team at Jana Reinhardt.

If there was ever a holiday I was counting down to, it was our very much needed break to the Sani Resort in Greece. Having been suffering with my health for the past 4 months, we were all very much in need of some rest and relaxation in the sunshine, and Greece did not disappoint with the amazing temperatures we were blessed with.

Have you seen them? Those little glimpses that it’s coming. You might have noticed the tins of Roses and Quality Street, suddenly popping up when you walk in the supermarket. You might have even seen the likes of Marks and Spencer and Lidl, showing pigs in blankets and sausage wreaths on your social media.

While I don’t think Christmas season officially begins until you hear your first notes of Michael Bublé, Christmas is looming ever closer, and that can only mean one thing… lots of festive cheer.

Review – We were invited to the Cookhouse and Pub to enjoy a complimentary three course meal with drinks

At the weekend we were invited back to our local Cookhouse and Pub, to have a look at their new menu. We last visited the pub in Northwich, Cheshire just over a year ago, after it had gone through a refurbishment programme and changed from a Brewers Fayre to a Cookhouse and Pub. We were looking forward to returning, and seeing what new dishes were on the menu.

You know the saying “better late than never” well this is how I feel about my Little Loves post. I nearly didn’t bother,  as September has been a really up and down month. I am still suffering with the after effects of pneumonia, and after seeing my consultant this week, more in-depth tests and scans are needed. It’s really hard being breathless every time you move, and life seems to be in limbo at the moment. But I am going to dig deep and try to see some positives.

With the subject of climate change and living sustainably being very much in the news at the moment, it got me thinking as to how sustainable we actually are when we travel. There is no getting away from the fact that we love to explore new places, and invariably those places will involve a plane journey. But what can we do when we visit new countries and cities ? How can we make our travel more sustainable ?

I can’t believe that it’s taken me until my mid forties to discover the thrill of European city breaks. Our day trip to Amsterdam was when I fell in love with the city, and we returned in the summer and had three days to explore. And with Copenhagen booked for next year, I am now on a mission to find hidden gems in Europe that we can visit.
