The Mill Hotel and Restaurant Review

Near Lyndhurst, in the New Forest; Hampshire

The problem was, we got caught in the Friday traffic with everyone going home; and I suppose many of them felt a stop-off at The Mill would be ideal.

The wait for our food was almost an hour – which, in fairness, we were warned about before I ordered at the bar. They were just far too under-staffed. I had to wait ten minutes to place the order and everyone was sitting down at tables that needed to be cleaned. The toilets needed cleaning as well – I decided to wait till we got back to the campsite; and that’s saying something!

However, after the moaning; the food was very nice. Husband and 1 kid had a cheeseburger and chips and other kid had a chickenburger and chips. Not very healthy, I know, but I was over-ruled. All 3 of them said theirs were lovely, and they were certainly bigger than we expected; with 2 large pieces of chicken in kid 2’s burger.

I had half a roast chicken and veg. The chicken was lovely, but the “new potatoes” weren’t; and the peas and carrots were out of a frozen packet, I’m sure. We did choose from the “2 for £10” menu, and you get what you pay for.

Despite my disgruntles , the service was efficiant and friendly, though clearly they were rushed off their feet. They also had a free large children’s play den that looked very good; however ours couldn’t try it due to being closed for flood damage. For a cheap family meal, I’d go there again.

Eating out, Food,

A review of ‘Things are what you make of them’ – Life advice for Creatives by Adam J. Kurtz

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….
Review of the L’Oreal Voluminous Superstar Mascara
February 15, 2017
On holiday in America in 2015 I bought the L’Oreal Beauty Tubes mascara. This was amazing, but when I went back last year, I couldn’t find it again. Instead, L’Oreal had this mascara, called Voluminous Superstar. It is one of those mascaras with two ends – a white coat first to lengthen your lashes and then the actual mascara to go over the top. This was just what I was looking for as I’ve liked those kind ever since I bought the Maybelline XXL volume mascara. (See my review here from 2005)……
Tarte eyeshadow palette review
A review of the Tarte Tarteist Amazonian Clay eyeshadow palette
November 14, 2017
I am constantly on the hunt for a matte eyeshadow palette, and if I see one, I will probably buy it! I honestly don’t know why they aren’t more popular, because I just cannot get on with an ordinary eye shadow! I had a little splurge on make-up a couple of years ago and talked about my issues with the No7 eyeshadows and the Maybelline eyeshadows that I bought. They simply do not look good on me and the pigmentation is rubbish. I decided it was about time I stopped faffing about with mid-range High Street make-up and actually spend some money….
