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 […]

July

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 […]

Why you should NOT drive before these doing 3 things

Why you should NOT drive before these doing 3 things

With a lovely summer on the way, we are doing more and more trips. Last month we’ve been to Oxfordshire for a short holiday, now we are thinking of having some days out, especially during the weekends. Also, we’ve been kayaking and that involves an hour drive to the beach and back. So, taking care […]

Fiction or Non-Fiction

Fiction or Non-Fiction?

I love reading. The question is now, do I prefer fiction or Non-fiction? For years I though I would rather read stories, novels, fiction. It seems is not quite true. Two years ago I was wondering if I failed in my reading challenge, or, better said, how much I failed in it. See the details […]

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. […]
