Our Magical Day at Lapland

This year I finally bit the bullet and booked a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Lapland! Having wanted to travel there for years whilst my daughter was still young we decided this was the year to go.

2015 F1 Season in Numbers

With the 2015 Formula 1 season drawing to a close in Abu Dhabi this weekend we thought we’d take a closer look at what has happened so far this season. The final race of the season will not change any results in the overall standings at the top with Lewis Hamilton taking first position back in Texas at the US Grand Prix and Team Mercedes winning the Constructors Championship, but lower down the table there is still plenty to play for.

They managed to smuggle 36 barrels of gunpowder into the cellar – which had […]
