International Women’s Day Celebrations

Tomorrow, 8th March, is International Women’s Day and I want to talk about the way this day is celebrated in Romania and how I’m still celebrating. This is a new celebration in UK, gaining more and more momentum each year. I do think it’s interesting how it evolves. The way is celebrated, with an emphasis […]

A decade of Vegetarianism - Cake

A decade of Vegetarianism

5 years ago I talked about my experience as a vegetarian for 5 years, today I mark a decade of vegetarianism. Being vegetarian is a very important part of my life, but not one that I would talk about. If I don’t have to disclose it, I wouldn’t. Recently I had light lunches with the […]

My Christmas, 2017, all of us

My Christmas, 2017

We’ve had a wonderful Christmas and I hope you had a wonderful Christmas too. We’ve celebrated Christmas at home, as we always do. These days my husband and I had a couple of discussions about what home means. Mainly because I was asked twice if I’m going home for Christmas. The Queen mentioned home and […]

8th Gotcha Day

8th Gotcha Day

I blogged about the day we’ve got Festus from the breeder. A few years ago I shared a collage of pictures with Festus through the years on 5th Gotcha Day. I also talked about The Best Christmas Gift. From the first moment I saw him I knew I want to take him home with us. […]

Volunteering at Victorian Christmas

Volunteering at Victorian Christmas

I didn’t plan to blog about volunteering at Victorian Christmas, until the last day finished. I talked with my husband about it, being so excited about everything I’ve done, so I thought it’s a great idea to blog about it. Of course, I need to be quite vague about it to keep the magic alive […]

100 places in UK in 6 years

Today marks the 6th anniversary of me arriving in UK. I thought how I’m going to celebrate this occasion, so I made a map with pins of where I’ve been to, hence 100 places in UK in 6 years. 100 is a round number, but his happened only by chance. I wanted to visit two […]

Cake with drinks, a bunch of flowers and candle

My birthday

A few days ago I’ve celebrated my birthday. I received an amazing gift from my husband, and we had a lovely day out. First of all, I’m going to start talking about the cake. I made Tschumi’s Chocolate Cake. It’s a cake made by a Swiss chef to the Royal Household, called Gabriel Tschumi. He […]

Anniversary

Anniversary

Yesterday we’ve celebrated the Anniversary of an important day in our life: the day we met. Cake, Champagne, wine, special meal, and dancing. It sounds perfect and it was. There is a post of the story of how we’ve met before on the blog. In a few words: in a train, many years ago. We […]

Easter and Duck Race

I was wondering if I should talk about my Easter and Duck race in the same post. It was a good idea in the end as we managed to miss the race while searching for a car park, more on that to come. On Easter the weather wasn’t great. We had a couple of long […]
