The Fun Of The Fair At Gulliver’s Land Theme Park Milton Keynes

We’re two and a half weeks into the summer holidays. Some days out with the girls are essential to stop us all from going crazy!

REVIEW: Jamie’s Italian Restaurant Milton Keynes

We always try and eat dinner together, at the table. It’s something my parents always did, and still do. I think it’s so important, both for our family relationship, and for instilling good table manners. But I am totally running out of steam when it comes to ideas about what to cook. So when the lovely people from Jamie’s Italian Restaurant in Milton Keynes invited me to review their new Super Lunch Deal* I was very excited. A meal, cooked for us, with no washing up? Yes  ...
