Party Like It’s Your Birthday

I knew something was going on. I didn’t know what, but I had my suspicions. It’s my birthday today. I’m 33. THIRTY THREE. When that happened I do not know, but I still feel in my twenties. Not my teens, I don’t want those again. So on Saturday, last Saturday, I was going bowling with… Continue reading Party Like It’s Your Birthday

Titanic Tea – My Heart Will Go On

So there are many perks of blogging I’ve come to realise over the past 18 month (yes I’ve been doing this thing for 18 months!). Blogging is a great excuse to visit new places. I can drink tea and eat cake for the purposes of research. (More tea drinking posts coming soon!) I learn things… Continue reading Titanic Tea – My Heart Will Go On

Courgette Cakes and Steampunk Coffee – Alchemista Norwich

I’d seen work being done on a building on St Gregory’s Alley a few months back while I was eating chips from Grosvenor Fish Bar. Actually it must have been quite a few months ago, as on this occasion I believe I was eating outdoors, which never happens as much as I’d like due to… Continue reading Courgette Cakes and Steampunk Coffee – Alchemista Norwich

Not Just Any Afternoon Tea – M&S Norwich

As I haven’t written about tea for a while and it’s been a bit of quiet news week here at Wheelescapades, I thought I’d tell you about a spontaneous afternoon tea I had with a friend a while back. This was not just any afternoon tea, this was an M&S afternoon tea (I know, sorry).… Continue reading Not Just Any Afternoon Tea – M&S Norwich

The Last Straw?

For many people using a straw is a novelty. Something that livens up a drink in a pub, makes a cocktail more fun, allows you to drink a thick milkshake without getting a moustache. Anyone remember being a kid and purposefully trying to get a shake/Ribena moustache? No. Maybe that’s another thing from my weird… Continue reading The Last Straw?

Best Nine of 2017

I’ve very much enjoyed my first attempt at blogmas, my ‘Sporadic Blogmas’ this year. I know I haven’t posted everyday, but I did warn you that was never going to happen. I couldn’t keep up the momentum and I’d probably run out of interesting things to say. That’s if anything I say is ‘interesting’! It… Continue reading Best Nine of 2017

Tea Revv Advent – Day 6-11

I’m typing this recent blogmas advent update with a cat sitting on half the keyboard, please bare with me. Let’s hope I don’t need to type ‘plomk’ too often, as he gets a bit grouchy when I try to squeeze in between his paws. You can check out my previous, cat free, advent reviews here.… Continue reading Tea Revv Advent – Day 6-11

Christmas Balls

I missed it last year and I was determined not to let it pass me by this time. I mean it looked amazing and bizarre at the same time. I was intrigued and disgusted, curious and apprehensive. I’ve waited a whole year for it to return, just so I can say I had it, I… Continue reading Christmas Balls
