Beginner’s Intensive Ski Lesson at Chillfactore

Last week I had the best and hardest day ever! Chillfactore in Manchester obviously spotted my lack of skiing ability on my blog and kindly invited me down to a day’s intensive lesson with them. Obviously I bit their hand off and booked-in straight away. I opted for the beginner’s intensive ski lesson, which would take place over 1 day (you can also do a 2-day course or split the lessons over 3 consecutive weeks).

30th Birthday Party at King Street Townhouse

God knows how he got that one past me, but I was thrown off the scent time and time again and right up until the last minute, I thought we were just going for a nice meal, the three of us.

So here’s me all dressed-up with the little lady (me in H&M, her in Ted Baker…how does that work?!), thinking that we’re off for a dinner at King Street Townhouse.Continue reading
