Harrogate Flower Show

This weekend we’ve been to Harrogate for the Spring Flower Show. It was very interesting and bigger than expected. I have a lot of pictures of beautiful flowers, but I’ll start with chrysanthemums, they have a special meaning for me. On Sunday, after a couple of hours drive we arrived in Harrogate to see there […]

Fat vs. Thin

There is a debate regarding a comment a singer made about the plus-size clothing available in shops. I have no idea why she was bothered by this, I certainly only care if they have on stock my size for the item that I want to try&buy. I think any woman should be able to buy […]

Birkenhead Priory

I’ve been to the Birkenhead Priory twice in the past. The tower was in the process of being restored so we weren’t able to visit it. Last weekend we went to the Wirral trams. The Priory is the oldest building in Merseyside, build in 1150. The tower is a Victorian addition to the old monastery. […]

Wirral Trams

Last weekend, on Saturday, there was a special event to celebrate 20 years of The Wirral Transport Museum & Heritage Tramway. We like riding in restored old trams, so we went back to Wirral for the day. We parked near the museum, quite convenient. We’ve missed the first tram, but we arrived in time for […]

Exactly 6 months ago we moved into our new home. Instead of writing a long post about the joys of living in our own house (so many), I’ve decided to make a short list of tips for renovating. The pictures aren’t from the same angles, but it’s the same garden and room 🙂 1. Ask […]

Last Sunday I didn’t write the weekly post as it was Easter. This week, I’ve resumed the series with 10 good things, to cover both weeks. 1. Sunny days. It is more and more sunny and warm and I love it. This year I want to walk more, to do more circular walks and enjoy […]

BBC Good Food Show 2015

This week I’ve won tickets to BBC Good Food Show in Harrogate. It is a very busy time for us and I didn’t want to buy the tickets, so I was very happy when I won them and the “choice” was already made for me. When I received the tickets I was so happy. Initially […]

Highland cattle

I believe everyone who watched Countryfile fell in love with Eric. I bought a card with a picture of a Highland cattle at a fair and the artist told me that everybody loves Eric and that she is told again and again about him. On Easter we’ve been to the stately house closest to us […]
