Hilary Term

Hilary Term

Hilary Term is now over. If you are curious how the first term was, have a look at Michaelmas Term. This term I had to do two essays, I had tutorials, and I started a new period, European history in the 19th century. It was different because we changed the period and the professor too. […]


February 2020

February was great, I’ve had some pretty amazing experiences, like the visit to the Guide dog centre, we went to London for a day, I’ve attended a blogger event with Moonpig for Mother’s day, and I had some lovely dates with my husband. The university course was very demanding this month, as I’ve started a […]


January 2020

January was a very busy month for me. With my studies and a lot of work related things to think of, at the end of it I feel a bit tired. But I love the excitement and fast pace, so I’m not actually complaining. I just need a bit more rest and I will be […]

Festus' Choice

Festus’ choice

Festus’ choice might sound a bit cheesy for a post title, but I think it describes perfectly what the post is about: choosing. After Christmas I shared a few pictures with Festus picking up his favourite treat from the ones he had under the tree, if you’ve missed the post, it’s here. He had only […]

Highlights of 2019

My 2019, by month

I love doing this kind of round-ups at the end of the year. As my blog is primarily a diary, I’m often going back in the archives to see places I’ve been to or what I was doing the year before. This will be a quick reminder of the highlights from this year. It was […]

Michaelmas Term

Michaelmas Term

While I mentioned Oxford a few times on the blog, I didn’t talk about my studies. Last week or so I thought I would like to make an update, so here is a round-up of my Michaelmas term. I will share a similar update at the end of Hilary term, and again for Trinity. It […]



This must be one of the most strangest months I’ve ever written about, starting with the Challenges of Government Conference, going on an amazing holiday visiting the Royal Pavilion, having a few cocktails at a cocktail masterclass, feeding crocodiles, and a farmer experience! It can’t get more random than that, can it? On the 1st […]



October was such a busy month. I usually post in the morning, but today I was away and I managed to finish the post only now. This month I’ve started University and I love it. I’ve made my first essay, I had my first tutorial, and I’ve been to many lectures and seminars. Staying in […]

Festus at Blenheim, on the tarmac with his toy

Festus at Blenheim. Lots of Pictures

Festus loves walking on the Blenheim estates. There is a lovely park and on that day, we went a bit further than usual. Festus sometimes likes to get his toy with him and that was one of the days. As you can see in the pictures, he didn’t let go of his toy. Very similar […]
