Ruins of Lewes priory

Lewes Priory & Lewes Castle

Lewes is a lovely little town with plenty of things to see, including Anne of Cleves House, Lewes Priory and Lewes Castle with Barbican House Museum, in the same location. I’ve decided to talk about both the castle and the priory in a single post, as I have a lot of posts waiting to be […]

Dinner set at the Michelham Priory

Michelham Priory

Michelham Priory is in East Sussex, a former Augustine Priory. Unlike most priories which are now in ruins, this one was turned into a country house. On their website they have a short essay about the history of the priory. I’m going to share a few highlights, but make sure you read it if you […]

Entrance to Anne of Cleves House Museum

Anne of Cleves House Museum

Anne of Cleves House Museum is a gorgeous 15th century timber-framed house in East Sussex. It is called Anne of Cleves House because it was part of the annulment settlement she received from King Henry VIII in 1541. She never lived in the property, so this post is more a pictures-only kind of post. They […]

Crocodiles Feeding experience

Crocodiles Feeding

Yesterday, for my birthday, my husband bought an experience for me to a zoo I’ve been to before, Crocodiles of the World, in 2014. I loved it and I said I want to do crocodiles feeding. The Crocodiles of the World zoo is only 30 minutes away from Oxford and I told my husband I […]

Cardiff Bay

Cardiff

It’s time for a round-up of the things I visited in Cardiff and, of course, to share some new pictures from the city. All the links in this post are towards other posts of mine, published previously. Cardiff – What to do In Cardiff we were able to race each other on a well-known track […]

Cardiff Castle

Cardiff Castle

Cardiff Castle is a must see if you are visiting Cardiff. It was quite busy when we visited, despite being Autumn. As usual, I picked a few highlights to show from the Castle. We didn’t have a lot of time to visit it, so we didn’t book the guided tour, but I will book it, […]

paperless

Paperless Post

I was asked if I wanted to review Paperless Post*, a card sending service, where all the cards are created and sent by email. When I started using the internet many years ago, there were websites offering this kind of options, but I haven’t seen something similar in a while. I love the idea for […]

Collage of the bakes I made for GBBO bake along

Baking Along the Bake Off 2019

Another year of Baking Along the Bake Off. I wasn’t sure if I would have the time, but I did. Two weeks I prepared my desserts in the caravan, as I was away on holiday and in Oxford. I was delighted that David won, as he seems so lovely and his bakes were so great. […]

Me at the Big Pit

Big Pit

I was very excited to talk about the Big Pit, the National Coal Museum of Wales. It is a free museum and is so worth a visit. Saying that is a museum is a bit strange, because it is more like an experience. Unfortunately I wasn’t allowed to take pictures inside the mine, but I […]
