Why I ditched the 5 year plan

Why I ditched the 5 year plan

I have always had a 5 year plan in mind for my life and I’m sure if you are reading this you can relate. I was determined that I would be married with babies by around 27, and I’d definitely be in my dream career before 25. As I have got older, particularly in my 30's, I have started to realise that you really don't need to live your life to a certain timeline.

Christmas Dining at Miller and Carter, Newcastle

Miller and Carter Newcastle at Christmas

My favourite thing about Christmas is how everyone has their own way of enjoying the festive buildup. I love hearing about other people's traditions! My favourite part of December has to be getting all dressed up to go out for a nice meal with my other half or friends, treating ourselves to three courses and a good range of drinks. 

Finding somewhere which is affordable but special to dine at during the Christmas period can be tricky. Miller and Carter Newcastle have a fantastic 3 course festive menu for £29.99 including a glass of fizz and we had such a nice meal there last year, we chose to dine there for the second year in a row. It's safe to say we will be back next year as it was epic, yet again!
