Food Friday : Sausage making workshop with The Northumberland Sausage Company

Hello Lovelies, 

Recently, we took part in a sausage making workshop with the Northumberland Sausage Company who have a facility in Brocksbushes farm shop, Corbridge. In a large portakabin on a Sunday morning seemed the perfect time to craft some delicious home made bangers. 14 other people agreed so too. It also happened to be our wedding anniversary!

Footner Exfoliating Socks

Hello Lovelies, 

Don't worry, there will be no foot photos in this post, I assure you!

On Saturday I endured my 60 minutes of slimy feet time in order to kick off the exfoliating process with Footner.

I have yet to see any of the peeling they promise so I can't report much but I know a lot of people were keen to hear how I was getting on with them as they too wanted to try them.

The socks themselves are definitely better worn with some tight socks over the top to keep them in place but they are still a bit tricky to walk around in.

They say they fit up to a UK size 11 but as size 7/8 I found they came up very short on the heels but all the way up the top of my foot. 

Don't know about you but I have more hard skin on my heels than the top of my feet!

Certain parts of my feet now look drier than they were so this might be the start of the peeling. Don't worry though, the peeling is to be expected.

The socks are £19.99 from Boots.

Travel News - United's new UK route

Hello Lovelies, 

News broke yesterday of a new UK route from the American airline United.

Newcastle (my home airport) will be the proud new base point for a flight to New York.

Running an almost daily service in to Newark Liberty Airport (EWR), each flight departs at a delightfully civilised time of 09:10 getting in to Newark for noon.

The outbound flights run Monday, Tuesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday with inbound omitting the Tuesday flight.

The summer season route will run from May 2015 until September 2015.

With United having a whole heap of internal routes, it will make a great hub for us Northerners to explore more of America without travelling to London or Manchester.

United are also members of the Star Alliance network which means you can earn and burn air miles on a variety of other airlines!

Flights are on sale now for May... and I certainly hope to be on the inaugural NCL to EWR flight!
