Well its very nearly Christmas and all I wish for now is some snow! Walking the dog this morning everywhere was frosty and white, made me really feel in the festive spirit. One of the best things personally at this time of the year is the food and celebrations associated with Christmas and New Year, so this week I have decided to blog about 5 of my favourite places to eat.

I grew up in Chester, just over the road from Liverpool, and remember visiting for shopping and days out. It never seemed a very exciting city. That’s is of course apart from being home to the Beatles ! The last few years have seen massive changes in the city with designer shops, excellent restaurants and a vibrant nightlife, making Liverpool a city well worth a visit .

She last had a make over in 2011 but the forthcoming one sounds like a bit more than a tidy up.

All Inclusive holidays have been around now for a while. I think they probably started life in the Caribbean where sometimes it s difficult to get to many bars & restaurants, especially as some of the hotels are set on large, sprawling estates in quite remote areas.
