Knowsley Safari Park, August

Knowsley Safari Park, August

A couple of days ago we went to Knowsley Safari Park for our August visit. We are visiting them each month, and here is this month’s update. First of all, we’ve had a lovely vegan picnic in their picnic area. There are designated spots with parking and social distancing is very easy to be respected, […]

Cuprinol Garden Shades - on wood

Cuprinol Garden Shades

I mentioned a few times so far that we’ve been in the process of refurbishing our garden and a few rooms in the house. Like many people during lockdown, we took advantage of staying at home to do bits and pieces we’ve postponed. This meant that for last couple of months I’ve painted lots! For […]

Allotment Vegan Eatery - Outside

Magpie looking at himself

Magpie visit

I had another post planned for today, but, earlier this morning, a magpie visited our window sill and I was able to take a few pictures of him. First of all I should mention that our first floor windows have a mirror film installed on them. This way, I can have the privacy, as from […]


Bloggers Art Gallery

Kezzie had a great idea, to organize a Bloggers Art Gallery. Bloggers Art Gallery is a joint effort by a few bloggers, who showcase their artwork, in a time when many museums are closed. You can see in the next picture who is taking part and, if you click on this link to her blog, […]
