Croxteth Hall Greenhouse

I’ve been to Croxteth Hall a few years ago and I remembered being impressed by the house and the walled garden. It has the mushroom house and interesting shaped fruit trees for a bigger yield. The greenhouse seemed less exciting at that time. A couple of days before Easter I saw on BBC News that […]

My Easter

My husband, the dog and I had a pretty interesting Easter this year. I am always keen to make lots of different things to eat, lots of desserts. I made Romanian dishes that are made for Easter, British traditional foods and even Dutch, I have to blame Mary Berry for that one. These are one […]

10 Good things

1. New Sofa! The new sofa is finally here, after ordering it at the end of December. I’m happy with it, it’s exactly as I wanted it to be and it’s very comfy. The last sofa we had we got it from a friend after we moved in an unfurnished house. We had to buy […]

So why other people and, unfortunately, brands would expect me and other bloggers to work for free? I visit trade and retail shows with work, […]

125th anniversary – Crufts 2016

This year was the 125th edition of Crufts. I heard about Crufts after I got Festus Vom Hause Mitroi, my wonderful rottweiler. As an owner of a pedigree dog I have a huge admiration for breeders and their work. I know how much effort goes into each dog to prepare them for shows, to raise […]

Bloggers conquer Snowdon

I mentioned that I would love to climb Snowdon this year in the goals for 2016 post and Becster said she would like to join in. So, after talking, pondering ideas and researching… Bloggers conquer Snowdon was born. It’s true that Snowdon is not exactly Everest, but “Bloggers going on the easiest path on Snowdon […]

Not suitable for vegetarians

This just shows how little is known about the processes of making the food, the drinks and the clothes we enjoy. There are so many reasons why people decide to become vegetarian, like health […]
