Birthday burgers at Byron, intu Derby

I first visited Byron in intu Derby way back when it first opened a couple of years ago and I’ve never been back. Mostly because of the bad service I received while I was there but also because I thought the food was overpriced. So when intu Derby invited me along to celebrate Byron’s tenth birthday I wasn’t jumping for joy but I had an open mind. We arrived a little early but we were quickly shown to our table.

July was a great month for me, although most months are these days! As always, it was a busy month but it was packed full of great times that have turned into wonderful memories.

Monthly highlights: May 2017

Last month was a busy one! So busy in fact that I forgot to list my highlights as I went along so I had to have a bit of a brainstorm last week to remember what I’d been up to. Hopefully I’ve remembered everything! Gig tickets May was a very expensive month for me. To be honest, I’m still trying to come to terms with just how much money I’ve spent! It doesn’t matter though because I spent it on some amazing experiences that I can’t wait to have in a few months time. I’ve been waiting for the Impractical…
