I love celebrating birthdays – it’s always so nice to get together with your favourite people, and they’re just such a great excuse to go for dinner (as if I needed another one!)
To celebrate such an occasion for a friend the other week, we booked a table at The Duncombe Arms for dinner – a pub in Ellastone, Staffordshire, which is a stones throw from Alton Towers
As a temporary resident of Etwall, it seems only right that I take full advantage of being within walking distance of Blenheim House, and what better night to visit than Ladies Night, where 2 courses were £15.95 and 3 courses were £18.95 (and there was no mention of the World Cup – result!)

Do you ever buy a sackful of fresh spinach and then wonder what you’re going to do with it before it goes soggy? I’m here to help with 3 quick, healthy vegetarian recipes!
