My 35th birthday

Ate with family at Nags Head en route to Flask Dam, just outside of Sheffield. After lunch walked round Flask Dam.

Finished time with family with nibbles and birthday cake at my house.

I then went to the pub to listen to some live music.


Seven Hills Bakery Hot Chocolate and Fudge

Biting into chocolate end, had that great sensation of chocolate snapping like on a magnum. A taste of chocolate then the beautiful intense fudge taste.

A smooth hot chocolate with the butter taste balanced by sweetness.

I tried a tester piece of frangipani and that was also very tasty.

The cafe is one side of the shop, it felt slightly cool but to be fair it was November and I had come into shelter from the rain as had open toe shoes on after a pedicure.A fairly basic feel rather than cosy. Concreate wall painted grey. White Walls, one dark blue and the rest of Shop behind cafe. One white wall had blackboard menus; all you can eat toast for the price of a sandwich – worth rembering!

It is on Sharrow Vale Road in Sheffield. There was a selection of gluten free products.

Sheffield Christmas Lights Switch On

The Christmas light switch on in the city centre brought crowds into the centre.

The moor had entertainment including Chorus choir previewing their Christmas show, a brass band playing carols, mini horses and goats, a traditional carrousel.

The lights on the moor were already on.

The other lights were switched on from a stage in the Peace gardens.

Someone else with admiration for Sheffield.

I first lived in Sheffield 16years ago so was there at the same time that the author of this post last went to Sheffield.

A good summary of some of the great places in the city centre.

Surprising Sheffield – Love Travelling

Bradfield near Sheffield 

Bradfield is about 10-15minute drive from Hillsborough in Sheffield. On the bus from Hillsborough in Sheffield, it takes about 30minute. It is the same route as Our Cow Molly. There are two buses (61 and 62) an hour one goes from Hillsborough to Stannigton to Our Cow Molly to Low Bradfield to High Bradfield and back to Hillsborough and the other does the circuit in reverse.


Our Cow Molly ice cream is sold in a couple of venues in Low Bradfield.

It is good countryside for walking.

The Schooolrooms is a good cafe. Yesterday I had spinach cake from the post office shop / cafe which has the phone box and yellow back outside in the photo above. It did not taste of spinach! The cream in the middle tasted citrusy. The Sponge was lovely and soft.
