July Roundup

We’ve had a few weeks of intense heat, so I definitely must mention them in this July Roundup. I’m not too keen on hot weather and tanning, so I’ve used huge amounts of SPF 50 sunscreen these days. The heat made us look for alternative activities and we’ve been kayaking a lot. Besides this, I’ve […]

First World Nightmares

First World Nightmares

My husband and I have nightmares sometimes, although they are more like bad dreams, and not actually nightmares where we end up screaming. Because they are so mundane, I had to call them First World Nightmares. As both have something in common, I though it will be fun to share them on my blog. I […]

11 Things I Learned In 11 Years of Marriage

11 Things I Learned In 11 Years of Marriage

Recently we’ve celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary, as is obvious from the name of the post. Some of the things I mentioned in my post, 11 Things I Learned In 11 Years of Marriage, I knew before. But only after a long time, you can fully understand the impact these things have on the marriage. […]

Kayaking. The inflatable kayak


I’ve been kayaking in the Irish Sea for a few times this year, as I mentioned in the post 30 Days Wild. I thought it would be nice to write a quick update and share the amazing pictures I have from those trips. How amazing is this picture? My husband took it and he was […]


June Roundup

This month was fantastic and I do enjoy writing this June roundup. The month started with a fun event, the Bed Race. It had plenty of hot days, perfect for the 30 Days Wild challenge I took on this year. It ended with a short holiday in Oxfordshire, from which I’ve returned yesterday evening, and […]

Flower Lounge Bouquet - Anniversary

May Roundup

As last month, this month I didn’t blog every other day. Even so, I did manage to write and share 12 posts (this one is the 12th). I say it’s pretty good. I think next month I will post more as I already have some posts planned, including one with a special exhibition that took […]


April roundup

This month I wasn’t as much into blogging as before. Not sure why. Even so, I did blog once or twice each week. That is less than my usual a post every other day. We’ve celebrated Easter, but that seems like a very long time ago. We are having a much nicer weather and we […]

Going out

March roundup

I always try to think how I would describe my month in the roundup and, without a doubt, I would say that is was busy. I’m doing a lot of things, that is true. I blogged about a new pair of boots from Selfridges. Also, I shared details about a guest we have in the […]

Festus watching Schrödinger eating

Meet Schrödinger, our Guest

Meet Schrodinger, our feline guest. You might recognize him from a post I did last month called Unexpected Cat in the Kitchen. Between the beginning of February and the end of March, we’ve had cold weather a few times, even snow. I mentioned in that post that she might be a stray cat. Sadly it […]

Wild duck

Wild birds and days out

Spring is coming, so this means more days out as the weather gets better and better. I wanted to visit again Bramall Hall (I will blog about it soon) and I remembered seeing there the wild birds. If, like me, you like to feed the birds, remember white bread can be detrimental to them, as […]
