Vodka Martini From Aldi!!

With James Bond Spectre in cinema today why not head down to Aldi and pick up the ingredients and make yourself a lovely drink thats shaken not stirred :)

This looks amazing and I know I will be heading down to Aldi and making this.

Enjoy !!!


Make sure your Bonfire Night party goes off with a bang with Aldi’s fantastic selection of fireworks and bonfire Specialbuys.

For those who want to put on a spectacular show for friends and family this Guy Fawkes Night (5th November) and Diwali (11th November), there’s the Detonator (£39.99) which fires mixed coloured stars across the sky with loud crackles and coloured bursts.

The Blasting Barrel (£9.99), lives up to its name, erupting with high silver plumes while changing colour and creating loud crackling white flashes. And if you’re aiming high, why not go for the Air Strike (£19.99) which lights up the night’s sky with rockets that can reach up to 80 metres!

For younger children and those with pets, try the Merlin (£19.99) or Astro (£4.99) selection boxes which are packed with colourful displays, minus the loud bangs. The Merlin also comes with a firework safety lighter.

 Finally, adults and children will love Aldi’s 18” Giant Sparklers (£1.69) which are extra-long and last up to two minutes so the fun can last even longer. Make sure that your bonfire is the best on the block, by picking up Aldi’s essential Heat Logs (£2.99), Kiln Dried Logs (£3.99) and Firelighters (£0.79).

With products ranging from £1.39 to £39.99 and with celebrations such as Guy Fawkes Night and Diwali just around the corner, there has never been a better time to stock up.

We will for sure be heading to Aldi to pick up a selection of Their Bonfire goodies,Not sure on the fireworks yet as there are too many animals around here for me to be comfortable having any but Aldi has a great selection for those who want to have a great fireworks night just remember to stay safe.

Well we were given the opportunity to go on the corrie tour :).Coronation Street left Here in 2013 in December for Their new filming location at Media City around 5 miles away.

We left home after we took the kids to school it was a few hours driving and we were booked in for one of the afternoon tours,first stop of course was something to eat in the Trafford Center then excitedly off to find our way to the Iconic street.

Happy New Month!!

So it is officially October and Halloween is just around the corner as my kids like to remind me on a daily basis,This year they are having a little party with Their friends rather than Trick Or Treating as the oldest 2 are complaining they are too big to go lol.

In other news,our new freezer is working a treat packed full and giving no problems so money well spent in my eyes.

Yes I have a weakness for pies lol.if you are wondering why the freezer looks full of bags thats meat we got from the butcher came home really late in the night so just had to chuck it all in the freezer luckily it is all cut and sorted already.
