Funfair, Cocktails and Karaoke!

Undoubtedly Christmas is the busiest (and best) time of year, so fitting in a work girl’s night out before the hustle and bustle was VERY important.

A Night at The Crowne Plaza

It’s the second weekend in November and time to go and visit my parents in the Cotswolds.  That means an early morning flight from Aberdeen International Airport as Flybe’s flight to Birmingham on a Saturday now leaves at the ungodly hour of 07.00.  Well, it’s ungodly to me anyway on a Saturday morning after a week of late nights.

All is not what it seems in Manderley…

One of the best ways to spend a crisp autumn evening in Aberdeen? Delicious dinner and a night at the theatre!

We started our evening at one of Belmont Street’s relaxed eateries. Triple Kirks is one of my favourite places in the city centre for really good pub grub. It’s safe to say my friend and I made the most of the fairly priced menu (of course we left a little room for a treat at the theatre interval).
