Halloween 2018

As usual on the 1st of November, I’m sharing what we did yesterday for Halloween. Also, as usual, we stayed at home, waiting for children to come treat or tricking. It did rain a bit, 10 minutes or so around 7 and that might have put off people from coming out. That was a shame, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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

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 […]
