Custard Evolution!

Its funny how things come about don't you think?  Who would have thought that a bit of a giggle between two Geocaching friends a few years ago would have come to myself and my husband being known as something other than our official names? Yes...that's right...we gained the name of 'The Custards' as a result of our friends Penfolio and Jan having a laugh because Jan got Mr C's Geocaching name wrong in a phone conversation!  And now, the whole 'Custard' thing has evolved even further into the name of our new venture - Custard Create!

From wrong name to company logo!
Exciting times are ahead....Mr C and I have always been creative and loved all things digital - especially photography and digital painting so I thought after a spell of being unemployed and being completely and utterly bored of having no job it was about time we did something with our talents! today I am introducing you to the start of the 'Custard Empire' which will begin with our new website that is currently under construction -

Custard Create is essentially a place where our work can be showcased in the hope that people might come to us or pass our names on should they need anything doing of a creative nature!  We do all sorts of stuff...predominantly digital painting, digital photographic work and main stream photography (weddings, portraits and landscapes).

Here are a couple of examples as well as the digital painting above with our logo on it:

Digital Painting - pictures painted digitally by the use of an Ipad, a couple of photos supplied by the customer, some brilliant painting software and oodles of patience and talent:

Ethan - Digital Painting

Dexter - Digital Pet Painting
Digital Photographic Art - created from your favourite photos using all sorts of digital programs such as Adobe Photoshop etc. in order to create a portrait that is a little funkier than normal! (all pictures below were actually created from portrait shoots done by myself but all sorts of amazing effects can be created from you providing me with a favourite image yourself!):

Beth - Digital art
Archie - Digital art

Mainstream Photography - weddings, portraits and landscapes - packages put together to suit all budgets:

As you can see - I have plenty of examples of work to showcase on the new site - in fact I have about a million more images as well as the ones on here and we also have loads of new work in different and unique styles that are currently in the pipeline that will be uploaded when finished - so watch this space!

Should anyone want any work done though, no matter how far fetched your ideas, drop us a line on and I'm sure we can create you something that will blow your socks off at a price that's right!

Anyhow...that's how we got to where we are now and I kind of like the fact that our new name has a story behind it - I think it maybe gives us some sort of unforgettable character! In actual fact though, although its been a few years in the making it really feels like just the start of something big - exciting times are ahead.....Custard Empire here we come!

Oh....and a MASSIVE thanks to Paul Penfolio and Jan Whiteley for having such an impact on our new venture's name - I think it will stick with us for the rest of our lives and hopefully this funky, comical little name will be the start of something amazing! :-)

An Evening With Take That At The Grosvenor Pulford Hotel & Spa!

Well, well, well.....if there ever was a weekend that would 'Relight my fire' that I'd 'Never forget' (did you see what I did there?  Ha...clever eh?) - the one just gone would have to be it! Mr C and I have just got home from Cheshire after visiting our third Nelson Hotel.....The Grosvenor Pulford - and boy do we have lots to tell you about it!
The Grosvenor Pulford Hotel & Spa - Cheshire's finest accommodation!
After going to all three of their hotels now, Mr C and I really do feel that the Nelson group have cornered the market for luxury accommodation in Cheshire. After previously visiting The Pheasant Inn and The Bears Paw, we noticed a Take That tribute evening pop up on the Twitter feed of the chain and just knew it was now time to visit the Grosvenor Pulford for a bit of fun and laughter!

As soon as we pulled up to the hotel, we knew that we weren't going to be disappointed as the building was absolutely lovely and was surrounded with a beautifully tended garden (perfect for wedding photography) and far reaching views.

We checked in straight away and were taken up to our room - a superior suite that had just been decorated as part of the hotel's major refurbishment and oh my lord...well...I'll let the next photographs do the talking...

Grosvenor Pulford Superior Room - Wow!

Superior Suite Bathroom - With TV!!
The decor in our room really had the wow factor and absolutely blew us away - every little detail had been thought of i.e. soft closing drawers/toilet seat and the furnishings were of the highest possible quality you could imagine!  The room just oozed luxury and I have to say, the rug underneath the bed was the most beautifully squishy carpet I have ever had the pleasure to walk on...the down side to this room though was that you didn't want to leave....EVER!!!

The hotel itself is huge and features lots of different areas - Nelson's bar, a cosy gastro style pub that is filled with leather sofas, big warming fireplaces and quiet little corners, Ciro's Brasserie - a Mediterranean style restaurant that has an excellent selection of wines from around the world and makes you feel like you're in an eatery abroad (also where breakfast is held), The Grosvenor Suite - a beautifully decorated function suite filled with fairy lights (one of my favourite things) where events such as weddings and tribute evenings take place and last but not least - The Kasia Spa - a heavenly little place to unwind that features a pool, jacuzzi, sauna, steam room, gym, treatment rooms and an eatery that looks out onto an Asian sensory garden - perfect for soothing the mind.

Kasia Spa - Asian Sensory Garden
After an amazingly chilled out afternoon in the spa and a few drinks in Nelson's bar it was soon time for the big event - an evening with Take That!  Yippee!  Having heard a lot of good reports about the guys who were doing the tribute act we were very excited - as were all of the other guests down in the Grosvenor Suite when we arrived!  After having a drink at the bar, Operations Manager Maurice quickly seated everyone as the evening was about to begin....

Whilst listening to a DJ play some top tunes in order to crank up the atmosphere, we were served our three course meal.  The event was sold out and there were a lot of people to be fed in the room before the boys came on stage but Maurice and his team did an absolutely outstanding job of making sure everyone had their food. Then, when it was time to clear the plates away - they did it in true regimented style - it was like watching a highly practised dance routine!  The food, alongside the service was absolutely top notch!

Cheesecake finished...plates cleared glass topped was now time for Take That!  The crowd went wild when the boys came on stage and what a performance they gave - even Mr C enjoyed it!  The room was absolutely electric while the boys (and the crowd) sang their little hearts to some of Take That's all time greatest songs!  Then, after Take That came a disco so you could dance your little legs off until the small hours - oh what a night!

Take That Tribute Night At The Grosvenor Pulford Hotel
The tribute night was extremely enjoyable and is something that The Nelson Group have now decided to continue throughout the year due to its popularity.  They now have a full list of events that lasts right through this year's festive period - continuing next month (May) with 'a night with Robbie Williams' - I would highly recommend one of their events both in terms of superb fun and value for money!

As you can imagine, the day after the Take That tribute evening our heads were a little fragile so we decided to get out for a walk and blow the cobwebs away after breakfast!  The surrounding local area to the hotel is absolutely beautiful and you don't have to go far to find somewhere idyllic to walk - or, should you fancy a spot of retail therapy, Chester is not very far away either!

After a long walk the sun was brightly shining upon the hotel garden - this meant it was time for only one thing - a drink and some food al fresco!  Hooray!  About time we had some better weather to sit out in!  Again, the food we had was amazing - I ordered a smaller version of the fish and chips (although not that small!), Mr C had a minted lamb burger and whilst we sat in this perfect setting with our food and a glass of something nice, we had the pleasure of watching a wedding unfold that was being held at the hotel - how very lovely!

'Smaller' Version Of Fish And Chips..MMM!

All in all, this is a weekend away that we won't forget in a that will 'Shine' (sorry....had to do it!) in our memories for a long time - just like our other adventures at the other Nelson Hotels!

Now then...where is that phone number again to get a night with Robbie booked....?!!!

Forget Me Not Hospice - A Truly Inspirational Place!

Blown away, inspired and high spirited were just a few of the emotions that were running through me this morning when I left from my visit to the Forget Me Not hospice in Huddersfield.  It was a visit that I had been looking forward to for a while as senior fundraiser - Gaynor Bearder had been telling me about it for quite some time with great passion.  Through Gaynor's previous explanations of the place, I knew it was going to be amazing - but after leaving this morning, this is a word that doesn't even come close...

The Forget Me Not charity was set up around 12 years ago by a local mum whose child became extremely ill and needed the care of a hospice.  After looking into this kind of support in her local community when she really needed it, she realised that it was actually extremely limited and wasn't really there.  Due to this, through her own experience of feeling a lack of support, she set about changing things within the community and the result was the Forget Me Not charity. 

The Forget Me Not charity has been raising funds that help to support children with life limiting conditions and their families for many years now through fantastic events such as the upcoming 'Santa dash'.  Their events are well known for fun and vibrance and the money raised from them helps to make a massive difference to the children and families who really need this support at a time that is particularly hard.  

The constant passion and hard work from the team at Forget Me Not has now also seen the opening of their first hospice building - Russell House -  which I visited this morning and let me tell you, right from your just knocks your socks off! 

Forget Me Not children's hospice - Huddersfield
The building has been so well thought out it's unbelievable and every little detail and more has been included in order to make the lives of the children and their families who stay there easier and full of vivacious quality - for whatever time they may have left due to their illnesses.  The idea of the hospice was not just to provide optimum care for the poorly children, but for the parents and siblings of the child too as it is a hard time for them all.

The building is bright and airy with gorgeous splashes of colour everywhere and each room has a different purpose.  There is a huge, comfy central area first of all when you walk in for eating and chilling out where the families can watch T.V., play games, get messily creative or just sit and chat.  This kind of felt like it was the main hub of the place too and had a really nice buzz of heart warming people coming and going who are all there for one purpose - to make the lives of the children and families staying there better - in fact, the staff that work there all have one motive that they feel very passionate about and this really shines through by their motto 'one team, one dream!'

The other thing that really stood out about the hospice was the state of the art equipment that filled every room - in rooms such as the sensory room, the four bedrooms, the swimming pool room and the teenage room, there was equipment that just blew me away!  This equipment had three purposes - the first to help the children get around and do things easier, the second to create an astonishing sensory experience that helps to instill calm and happiness whilst they are there and the third to create highly loved memories that will last forever.

As well as plenty to do for the children, also included at the hospice is a therapy room for parents too.  This is a lovely little place where they can go and have something like a massage maybe in order for them to just have that little bit of time out and rejuvenate their mind during such a difficult time.  So, as you can see, the team at Forget Me Not have thought of and care for the whole family!

The main building and the bedrooms are connected by one of the most beautiful corridors I have ever seen.  Down the corridor, there is a wall of colourful glass bricks that shimmer in the sunlight - this is named 'the celebration wall'.  Each of the blocks is available to buy by either fundraising or donating money to the chairty and once they are all bought it means that 1.6 million pounds will have been raised for the charity. 

Once you have purchased a block, you can then have it engraved with a memory or perhaps just something that creates a sense of happiness - for instance, one of the blocks said 'ripe tomatoes and sparkling bling' or another - which I really loved, said 'nothing happens unless we dream first' the latter, I thought said everything about the hospice - a dream of one woman whilst going through a difficult time has now become reality - very poignant I thought.  Seeing all of these thoughts together being highlighted by the sunlight actually moved me to tears - it was so beautiful!

The celebration wall - positive, inspiring messages that are filled with love

My trip to this totally energizing place inspired me greatly but made me realise that charities like this need all the help that they can get from the local community in order to keep going and there are approximately 700 families in the Kirklees, Calderdale and Wakefield area that could need the use of the Forget Me Not building at some point.  

The hospice costs around £7000 a day to run and only receives around 4% of the money needed per year from government funding due to it being a children's charity -  if it were an adult charity, it would receive up to 40% of the money needed - so as you can see, they need all the help that they can get.

If, after reading this post you now feel as inspired as me about the Forget Me Not hospice and you fancy helping out - whether its doing a bit of fundraising or maybe volunteering to help out, please get in touch with Gaynor Bearder who will gladly speak to you and tell you all about what's currently going on to raise money for Forget Me Not.  Please email her directly on: 

Gaynor is always happy to talk to anyone about it and has a real passion like the rest of the team to drive the hospice forward in order to create the happiest of long lasting memories for the children and their families who don't have much longer to live.  

Love and memories mean absolutely everything to the families of the children who die due to illness and the Forget Me Not hospice creates both of these things to the very highest degree!  In order to keep these amazing memories going though, the hospice needs people like you to help out so please....if you can help - get in touch, no matter how much you put in, every little bit helps and this will mean that those memories will carry on being created for a long time to come!

Nothing happens unless we dream first....

The Pheasant Inn - A Little Corner Of Heaven In Cheshire!

The Pheasant Inn at Higher Burwardsley, Cheshire has been a favourite place of ours for a good long while now - in fact, I would probably say that this place was the first hotel we stayed in that received a 'Custard favorite places award'!  We first ever went around 3 years ago for my birthday and since that stay, whenever we want to go somewhere that brings back happy memories and includes everything you could possibly want for a sublime chill out break - we think about going there!

The Pheasant Inn - Higher Burwardsley

I really feel like I have to shout from the rooftops about how good this place is - its just awesome in every sense of the word and last week Mr C and I were lucky enough to escape there for 2 nights so let me tell you all about it.....

We arrived at the Pheasant Inn last Wednesday lunch time.  We were obviously a little early to check in but having sampled the delights of the food there before we decided to get there early and enjoy a spot of lunch before checking in!

On arrival at the bar, we were greeted by a really lovely young gentleman who told us he would keep us informed of the progress of our room whilst we were there eating lunch and enjoying the cosy surrounding.  We decided to have a drink first before ordering the food as the fires were on and the pub had a really lovely buzz about it with people dotted here and there chatting, eating and generally having a good old time!

The decision to wait before ordering food was a good one for me though as after we sat down with our drinks, some food came out of the kitchen for another table and the huge portions on the plates took my breath away - they were enormous - although I have to say they looked mouth wateringly good and wouldn't have looked out of place on a Man V Food challenge!  Being only little, I decided to opt for a roast pork sandwich for lunch instead and save myself for a big meal later but on the menu you can actually have a smaller portion of some of the meals and after talking to the staff later on that evening too, they were more than willing to do a smaller portion of just about anything you wanted!

As our food was delivered to our table and we started to tuck in to the fine fair, I happened to turn around and glance outside to the Pheasant's terrace (which has to have THE best view from a pub that I have ever seen by the way) and noticed that two walkers had cheekily sat down on one of their benches to enjoy the view whilst eating their own pack up!  I then glanced back at my rustic, wooden board that was filled with a soft white teacake oozing with hot roast pork and apple sauce and compared it to their tiny, crushed, unappetizing sandwiches that were wrapped in foil.  At that point, I suddenly felt a real urge to go out and shout 'stop being so tight!  Look what you're missing!'  The shouting didn't materialise though as I didn't want my pork to go cold but hey - you just can't help some people sometimes either can you? Anyway - I think you get the message that our lunch was just lush!

Huge steak burger with the works!
A few drinks and a full belly later, the bar man came to tell us that our room was ready if we wanted to check in - what great customer service! After a little chat with him and another female staff member about the Pheasant Inn, the other hotels in the Nelson chain and how much they all enjoy working there (how nice!), we got our bags from the car and went to chill out in our room.

The rooms at the Pheasant are really nice - right from walking in, you feel like its home from home as the decor is just lovely. They are all equipped with decent sized flat screen TV's too which is great when laid in bed as you don't have to squint due to small screens like you still find in other hotels these days!  The beds are super comfy and because of the positioning of the hotel, its really quiet throughout the night so you feel really rested when you wake up!

One other thing to mention about the rooms is the drinks tray - Mr C and I have always measured a good hotel on whether or not they have hot chocolate on them as well as tea and coffee - for some reason it feels more indulgent when you're away and true to form - hot chocolate on the tray!  Hooray!  Although I have to say, I'm not surprised with this hotel chain - they just seem to know how to keep their guests happy!

On Thursday morning, we woke up after a really good sleep and decided to go for a walk after breakfast doing a spot of Geocaching as there are a fair few series in the area and its really beautiful around there so there's lots to see.  On our way over to the main building, we stopped to take in the hypnotic view from the terrace - as did all the other guests it seemed on their way to breakfast!  Just take a look below for yourself - its just stunning and you can't help it!

The best terrace in England - early morning!
The breakfast was amazing, there was a great choice on the menu and all of the staff were extremely polite.  The full English accompanied with Illy coffee was magnificent and most definitely set us up for the walk ahead!  If you didn't want anything as big as a full breakfast though, there were plenty of other lighter choices such as smoked salmon and scrambled eggs or cereals, fruit and toast.

A great start to the day!
One long walk later, we arrived back at the Pheasant around mid afternoon and to our delight, the sun was blazing down on the place!  What amazing weather and everything looked so nice - the blue sky, the autumn leaves - it just would have been wrong to go straight inside rather than sit out in the sunshine with a drink first!  Although we had to have our coats on, the sun on our faces was warm and heavenly - what a treat in mid November!

Sunshine in mid November - what a treat!
After a glorious day in the sunshine, we then went to get changed in order to enjoy a relaxing evening in the restaurant.  The Pheasant is filled with cosy corners, sumptuous leather sofas, real log fires and candles that create a really romantic surrounding - it looks seriously beautiful on an evening when the sun has gone down!

We decided to have one last meal before we left the morning after so for this, I chose from the specials board!  My choice in particular, I have to say was the best meal I have eaten in probably 10 years - I chose salmon steak with chilli new potatoes and vietnamese salad and oh my lord what a taste exposion that was!  It was something I wouldn't normally choose as I'm not a massive salad fan but the flavours that were magically put together in that dish were just divine and worked so well!  Compliments to the chef!

Salmon with chilli new potatoes and vietnamese salad
All in all, if you didn't get what I was trying to say whilst reading this post (I doubt that though!), the Pheasant Inn is without doubt a little corner of heaven in Cheshire and everyone should go and try it - it is definitely one of our favourite places!  Its priced very well for such a great standard of accommodation in such a beautiful place and the staff, the food and the ambience are second to none!  The Nelson hotel group really know how to deliver what a customer wants in a break away and I think personally, for that, they deserve a huge pat on the back!

Save Arrunden Kennels!

Imagine having a successful, established boarding kennels and cattery business for over 30 years and then a builder comes along, throws up a few houses next to it, rents them out and then the tenants who move in moan to the local council because of the noise at the kennels. Then, because of this complaint, the business gets threatened with a noise abatement order from the council - an order which if not complied with would result in huge fines through the courts, which in turn could potentially lead to the business having to close due to bankruptcy. It just doesn't seem right does it and correct me if I'm wrong but I don't ever remember a dog having a volume button? Unfortunately, this is EXACTLY whats going on up at Arrunden Kennels and Cattery in Holmfirth - I kid you not - and it needs to be stopped!
Please help to save Arrunden from potential closure!
Surely you would think, when first looking at a house to rent that the tenants would notice a substantial, well advertised boarding kennel right across the road and if they didn't like to hear the sound of a dogs bark maybe choose somewhere else to live?  I just don't understand why on earth these people would choose to live there if they didn't like noise but now because of the fuss they have made, one of Huddersfields most well-loved boarding kennel businesses is under threat because of noise (a noise that has been there for over 30 years might I add and never been cause for concern before) - the worst thing about it is though, the original tenants that kicked up such a fuss and caused the owners and staff at Arrunden major upset for over 6 months don't even live there any more - they have moved out!

Now you all know Mr C and I well by now and you also know and love our little pooch - Pedro.  We have been taking Pedro to Arrunden boarding kennels since he was a puppy and he is now nearly nine - we have always loved it there too - they are so caring, keep it spotlessly clean and learn the character of each pet quickly, for instance, when we picked Pedro up one time after a holiday we asked if he had been O.K. and we got the reply 'Oh! Pedro will do anything for a biscuit!'. That made us feel so good as they are obviously bothered about treating your pet in a friendly, dog loving manner, rather than just dumping them in the kennel and ignoring them until you come back for them!

From time to time, if Arrunden has been full, we have had to take him to other kennels in the area and I have to say, unfortunately, many times when we have picked him up he has stunk - like he has been sat in his own pee all weekend and this always upsets us.  This is why we always choose Arrunden if we can - in our opinion, it is by far the best boarding kennels in Huddersfield.

Jackie, the owner of Arrunden kennels and all of her staff are absolutely lovely and work very hard to run such a wonderful place where you can leave your beloved pets without worrying about them. Its just not fair that after a year of being terrorized by the tenants who have now moved out they are still being subjected to the stress of the noise abatement order which could potentially ruin their long standing business - they have been there for over 30 years without a complaint before so why should it be different now?  Perhaps the question should be asked - why was the planning permission for the houses passed in the first place when there was an already established boarding kennel a few metres over the road?
Please help raise awareness!
Anyhow, this is the awful situation that Arrunden are currently in and its heartbreaking to see the stress caused to such a nice group of people who offer a fantastic service to the local community, so, like my posts before regarding the closure of the Children's heart unit in Leeds - its time to get behind them too and support a long standing local business that does not deserve to be under threat of potential closure if they do not comply to the noise abatement order.  If you would like to help put a stop to this threat, please read on for ways in which you can show your support to Jackie and her team:

1.  Write a letter to Councillor Khan expressing your concerns over the potential threat of closure to Arrunden due to the noise abatement order.  You can write to him on

2.  Sign the official petition after you've signed it - PLEASE SHARE IT!

3.  Share this post on Facebook and Twitter in order to raise more awareness about this situation and hopefully get more people to retweet/share and then sign the petition/write to Councillor Khan!

Your help would really mean a lot to them up at Arrunden kennels - this has been going on for a while now and needs to be stopped - it is awful that they have this terrible situation looming over them day in, day out - all they want to do is go back to running their business without worrying about a potential closure if they can't adhere to the noise level!

It would also mean a lot to Pedro - he loves it there and that is important to us too.  So please help - I mean, just look at his little eyes below - how can you possibly ignore such a cute face?!

'Please help to save Arrunden Kennels - its my favourite!'

Comedy Night Dave - Now To Donate To Children's Heart Surgery Fund!

Kimmi Custard (that's me if you didn't already know!) is excited today - I have some fabulous, fabulous news which will give you even more reason to buy tickets for Huddersfield's first comedy championship - 'Comedy Night Dave' which will be held on Saturday 29th September 2012 at The Keys restaurant beneath the Parish church.  It is going to be truly fab and I personally can't wait!  They say that laughter is good for your health and with this awesome news - it will be - literally!

Laughter is great for health!

As you may have read in my last post, the organizer of this laugh a minute event - Dave Cowan, has drafted me in to help him sell the tickets for this exciting new idea.  Well, last Saturday I had a meeting with him and the owners of The Keys - Paul and Vicky, so that we could get things under way. At the meeting we were all very excited and managed to kick off many ideas for the night that are sure to make it a great success!

Whilst chatting, we got onto the subject of this very blog and Dave mentioned my previous posts about the Leeds heart surgery closure saying how great he thought it was that so many people were getting involved in the campaign to keep it open.  I told him about the new fund that has just been set up to raise money in order to launch a legal fight against the decision and that's when the news came......

Dave, Paul and Vicky have decided in order to support such a heart felt Yorkshire cause, that £1 of every ticket sold for the comedy championship will be donated to the children's heart surgery fund!!!  How amazing is that!  There is also now talk of a raffle on the evening to raise even more money for them too - so this means that now there is even more of a reason to buy your tickets as this truly magnificent fight by the people of Yorkshire will be supported too by this event!

I have to say - I am delighted at this news and I am really loving how everyone is now pulling together to help the campaigners overturn the decision to close the unit - its amazing to feel such unity!
'Comedy Night Dave' will be donating to the children's heart surgery fund!

So....just a recap from the last post as the tickets will sell like hot cakes because of this fantastic news now that is has been announced - tickets are on sale NOW from The Keys restaurant which is situated in the crypt beneath the Parish church on Byram Street in Huddersfield town centre.  The tickets cost £10 but include a free supper too (excellent value for such a great night out!).  The tickets are limited so if you want to go to this event its worth getting some as soon as possible!

Should you want to actually enter the comedy championship, there is a prize on the night of £200 for the winner who will be chosen by a panel of judges.  To enter please call The Keys restaurant on 01484 516677 for details.  An amazingly funny night which is coupled with support for a very worthy cause is sure to be a winner so:
