Festus on Holiday

You might read “Festus on Holiday” and wonder if the family pet should have a holiday. I think he needs a holiday. At home Festus “has” to guard the house from all sorts of dangers, like the postman who keeps coming a few times each week. That is a job and a pretty demanding one, […]

My thoughts on The Apprentice

I imagine it would be interesting to talk about my thoughts on The Apprentice now, when three years ago I said it was my favourite TV show. A couple of years ago I went to the Bridge cafe, one of the cafes where the loosing team goes to talk. the picture is from three years […]

3 Books You Should Read

I thought I should make a post with 3 Books You Should Read, because I’ve read two very interesting books recently and I bought a new one last week. All three books sound very interesting and were published this year. If you’ve read my post about the kind of books I prefer from a few […]

Recipes for Halloween - Black bread

Recipes for Halloween

Every year I’m thinking of new recipes for Halloween, and I start by looking at what I’ve done before. The first three recipes are from my cook blog: CookStyle. I’m going to share a fun recipe from a fellow blogger and a few I saw on Instagram. I also have a Pinterest board filled with […]

Liverpool

September Roundup

In September I’ve been a few times in the city centre, and most of those times the weather was amazing. I took pictures and shared a couple of Instagram, but I think I should share one of them on the blog too. I’m really lucky to be able to live here, it is a wonderful […]

Holiday Bucketlist

The next two months my husband and I are going on two holidays. So I thought it would be nice to make a Holiday Bucketlist. In October we’re going to Cornwall and in November in Bath and Bristol. It will be the first time we are going to these locations, so I’ve made a long […]

Festus' 9th Birthday. His gift

Festus’ 9th Birthday

A couple of days ago we’ve celebrated Festus’ 9th Birthday! He has a bit of white hair, but the rest is pretty much the same. His present was a toy! The day started with us singing “Happy birthday”, as we do every year. Festus loves that. He is looking at us, wagging his tail, sometimes […]

Borrowing or Buying Books

Borrowing or Buying Books

As a keen reader, I talk about the books I enjoy in the monthly update. As you might know, I even have a blog dedicated to book reviews, Coffee and Books. Today I’m talking about borrowing or buying books, which option is better. I read a lot of books. So far this year I’ve finished […]

Jungle Rumble

August roundup

August was a lovely month. I’ve participated in the Lost Castles, by helping building one of them. I went to the VIP launch of Margaritas, a new cocktail bar in Liverpool. In the last weekend, we went to Jungle Rumble at Liverpool One. I thought I’m going to blog about it, as I was sure […]

Fairtrade Coffee

Fairtrade Coffee

I’ve decided that I’m going to buy only fairtrade coffee a few months ago. It’s more expensive, but it’s not a necessity (despite being addicted to coffee and drinking coffee a few times a day). There is no justification, for me, not to buy fairtrade. Luckily there are plenty of options on the market, both […]
