*My event tickets were provided FOC, however, all opinions are my own as always
It feels like ages ago now but this time last week, I was at the 14th annual Bolton Food and Drink Festival enjoying the sunshine with thousands of fellow foodies (400,000 to be precise). This four-day event is always firmly noted in my diary months in advance and boasts cookery demos from popular national and regional chefs.
*Contains gifted items
When it comes to socialising, I’m an introvert and, although I love my friends and family dearly, I need to time alone to recharge, possibly more than most. Instead of feeling bored or lonely, I find great comfort in solitude and try to make time for myself on a regular basis.
Here are a few of my solo night in essentials.
*Our meal was provided free of charge, however, all opinions are my own as always
Wagamama is somewhere that I like to visit often, especially with Adam and the girls. It’s our go-to chain restaurant when out and about and we each have our staple favourite dishes. Recently, the team at the Spinningfield’s branch in Manchester got in touch and asked if I’d like to try out the new summer menu.
*Our brunch was provided free of charge, however, all opinions are my own as always
I‘m sure we have all indulged in a quaint afternoon tea or two at some point (especially if you’re a fellow Brit – we can’t seem to get enough of them, can we?) but how about an afternoon brunch? Until a couple of weeks ago, I hadn’t even heard of this concept before, let alone had the opportunity to try it for myself.
