Blog: Morrisons 1

All my dreams came true - I finally won a shopping spree! 


This Bank Holiday weekend I'll be pottering around Morrisons loading up my trolley with goodies that Mr S15 normally wouldn't approve of (basically anything with a very near sell-by date and lots of bread). 


Yes, I'm a #MorrisonsMum, one of the lucky bloggers who won £80 of gift vouchers this weekend.  Blogging does pay, then!


So, to the recipe finder on the Morrison's website (I'm still in work as I plan) –


Strawberry Mojitos. (Yay for a three-day weekend)


Gingered steak stirfry


Lime and pistachio cake.  


  1. Congrats! Buy lots of nice goodies. Expensive cheese comes to mind first for me :)

    1. Thanks, HNW - amongst the rum and steak there lurks cream cheese for a bash at Bank Holiday Baking!

Our adventures began in Ashford, Kent, via an overnight with friends in Chippenham - where I managed to leave my purse and my daughter's Kindle behind!  Time to pop on some sunnies and kick off your shoes: 

Thankfully we were staying with friends in Ashford, so we shared our budget for the five days of fun. 

First stop was Folkestone beach.  

Chicago: 48 Hours in the Magnificent Midwest

I first discovered Chicago in 2013, and have been fortunate enough to return several times since, usually for 24 or 48 hours, so I highly recommended this HIIT city destination. 

I also managed to fit in a 12 hour shopping trip layover when I visited Belize in April 2016.

A serial East Coast traveller (remember when everyone travelled to New York for a weekend break?) a work opportunity arose that saw me book a flight to Chicago for onward travel to a little student town called Champaign; four-hour return Amtrak trip, and well worth a visit for a true taste of America (they even have a freakin’ Dairy Queen).
Flights Flights are around 9 hours direct from the UK, and, depending how organised you are, range from £500-£800 for economy return.  
Hotels For reasons I’m about to go into, I enjoy staying at Hilton O’Hare (the only airport hotel; handy for layovers) or the Hilton Rosemont (one MTR stop from O’Hare and an entertainment haven).  City-centre hotels are very competitively priced, sta…
