First World Nightmares

First World Nightmares

My husband and I have nightmares sometimes, although they are more like bad dreams, and not actually nightmares where we end up screaming. Because they are so mundane, I had to call them First World Nightmares. As both have something in common, I though it will be fun to share them on my blog. I […]

passiflora in bloom

My Passiflora

Today I’m going to talk about my Passiflora. My mother send a pack of passiflora seeds a bit over five years ago. My husband and I planted the seeds and, from all, one picked up and grew and grew. After an year or so, we’ve moved to our new home and we took the passiflora […]

The White House, Bladon

The White House, Bladon

The White House, Bladon is the next pub I visited this year. It is a lovely 16th century pub in the Bladon village, near Woodstock in Oxfordshire. You can see a bit more on their website. The staff is friendly. The only thing I wasn’t very happy with is that there wasn’t a bit more about […]

Kayaking. The inflatable kayak

Kayaking

I’ve been kayaking in the Irish Sea for a few times this year, as I mentioned in the post 30 Days Wild. I thought it would be nice to write a quick update and share the amazing pictures I have from those trips. How amazing is this picture? My husband took it and he was […]

30 Days Wild

30 Days Wild

This June I’ve took the 30 Days Wild challenge. I did enjoy it a lot. It was a bit of pressure some days, because I didn’t have the time to go on different walks. But I’ve tried something else, picking up something grown in our garden, doing a longer walk with Festus. I’m glad I […]
