The Plough

A traditional pub/restaurant in Ivy Hatch, near Ightam, Kent.

It was a Thursday evening and there was only us and an elderly couple eating at The Plough throughout the whole evening. Perhaps it was more quiet than normal because it was election day. Anyway, it is a lovely looking pub and restaurant and we could have chosen to sit by the log fire or in the conservatory, so we went in the conservatory where we could see all the flowers outside. I loved the extra touches like the fact that the flowers in the vases were real, and there were burning candles all round the room; it was really pretty.
The menu had a good selection to choose from; though Chris’s steak portion was a bit small. I had duck in a plum sauce and it was delicious – I really enjoyed it. It is not a family restaurant though – there was no kid’s menu. Though they were given a generous portion of Sausages and mash from the lunch menu and only charged half price for it. There’s also no playground or garden to play in or anything like that.
It also turned out to be quite pricy. Although my duck was £10, which was quite reasonable, I had to pay an extra £1.50 for the vegetables (bit of a cheek I think) and the puddings were £4.50 each – not even a cheaper price for the ice-cream option. But if you’ve got the money to spend, for adults this would be a very nice place to eat.

Celebrating the new Feather & Black bedroom furniture shop in Bath, Somerset
June 15, 2018
Most of the shops were closing and only a few people milled around the beautiful Georgian streets of Bath as I walked up from the Southgate car park to Northumberland place, a little street to the right as you go up the hill of the main high street. The new premises of Feather and Black are beautiful and is one of those rare shops that haven’t completely hidden all the original architectural features of the building. I’ll be honest though, when I walked into the opening party, I didn’t notice them at first because I was too busy looking at the lovely furniture and accessories….
review of things are what you make of them by adam j. kurtz
A review of ‘Things are what you make of them’ – Life advice for Creatives by Adam J. Kurtz
March 21, 2018
Rain kindly bought this book for me for Mothers’ Day, and I’ve since managed to fit in the odd five minutes here and there to read it. That’s one good thing about Things Are What You Make Of Them – it doesn’t take long to read! Oh that makes me sound like I don’t like it, which isn’t true. It’s a book for the current generation who take their entertainment and information in snippets; in bite-size chunks of Instagram stories. There are even perforated edges so you can choose your favourite little pages of words of wisdom to put up on your copper magnet board next to the foiled print that says Eat Sleep Create….
Boots No 7 LIFT & luminate Day cream review
March 8, 2017
For me there’s a fine line between looking young and dewy, and looking fat and sweaty. This is the problem of having a round chubby face, and I’ve always gone as matte as possible with my make-up to avoid the second scenario as much as possible. However, as Boots no7 changed the formula of their Protect and Perfect Day cream, and I wasn’t as impressed as I was with their older version, I thought I would try out this one, which is part of their new Lift & Luminate range…..
