Why I blog?

I started my blog a couple of weeks after I moved to the UK. It was something that I planned before coming here as I already had 2 blogs at that time, one for the dog and one with recipes. I wanted an easy way to keep in touch with family and friends so I’ve […]

5 Good things

It was a busy week with a few good things and new ideas. I have a few ideas for work, for blogging (see 2.), for the house. 1. Spring weather. It’s sunny and it gets warm and I love our walks with the dog and the way the grass looks in the garden. The flowers […]

Lymm, a picturesque village

Yesterday I wanted a quite walk, but I didn’t fancy a rather cold woodland walk. So, I searched on google and found Lymm, a small village in Cheshire, just 30 minutes from us. There is a Canal with a couple of pubs and terraces near the water to add to the charm, that surely will […]

Festus, the sleeping dog

I avoid blogging about my dog because this subject can be boring for non-dog owners, but the way he is sleeping is too cute not to be mentioned. After our usual morning walk, he must sleep, so he can be prepared for a new walk in the evening. I’ve posted a couple of months ago […]

I should have been Victorian

I’ve started reading historic&regency romantic novels in my early teens (no added pressure for future boyfriends, obviously 🙂 ). I’ve read hundreds of books, but I found myself attracted to the historic ones more. When I moved to the UK, I was quite knowledgeable of the way the British aristocracy had to behave in the […]

10 Good things

I missed the post for last Sunday, as I was busy and I kept postponing the post until today. Last week and this week had some awful parts, I found out about a few bad things that are affecting me and will affect me in the future. The worst part is that at the moment […]

Solar eclipse

We’ve talked a lot about the eclipse, I wanted to go to Scotland to see it better, hubby was reluctant as it wasn’t a total eclipse. In the end, it was too far for a day trip, so we’ve remained at home and hoped we’ll have a clear sky in Liverpool. Enjoy! You might also […]

St. Patrick’s Day

We’ve been to the parade held for St. Patrick’s Day yesterday. In the morning rained and I thought I’m not in a mood to be outside on bad weather. By lunch time, the weather was perfect, the sun was shinnying and it was warm and nice. It was lovely, I’m very glad we went to […]

The Beatles Story

My mother told me that we were listening to The Beatles when I was a toddler. As a teenager I was more keen on Nirvana, Sepultura, Metallica, Depeche Mode. I like a few Beatles songs and intended to visit the museums at some point, but always postponed it as I thought I would like other […]

Mother’s Day

I don’t have children, but we joke that I am “the mother of the dog” and hubby is, obviously, “the father of the dog”. I would say that is enough to celebrate Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. I got this lovely card from the dog. He was tired all day, as we’ve decided to wake […]
