Baby No1 vs Baby No3
If I turn back time to 2006 when Harry was born, I really wouldn't recognise myself. Aged just 22 and with no parenting experience at all (I hadn't changed a single nappy), it's fair to say I was a little out of my depth. During that first pregnancy, I woul...

We travelled with Virgin Trains East Coast from Newcastle to London with our three children. We decided to visit as a day trip to save on the coast of a hotel. Our Virgin Trains East Coast train was on time, clean and we found a seat without a problem. Our children loved that there were ample plug sockets to plug their devices in. I can't believe we managed to get to London in less than 3 hours! Special shout out to the guy serving coffee - very cheerful :D

We have dined at Haveli twice now - once as a couple and once as a big family celebration with our children. Both times were absolutely flawless. The food is authentic, modern, beautifully presented and full of flavour, the atmosphere is elegant but relaxed with friendly, approachable and attentive staff and we have always been made to feel at home during our visits. I would highly recommend the Goan Lamb Vindaloo - the best curry I've ever eaten! Certainly a destination restaurant and worth the drive to Ponteland for.
