Wellington Arch

I was looking in the English Heritage book as I usually do before we are heading up to a new place and I saw that the Wellington Arch can be visited. I never imagined it was possible and I really wanted to see it. The Arch was built in 1820s and it was moved to […]

5 Good things

For most of us, life can be as exciting or as horrible as we are making it to be. I’m frustrated and annoyed by things that I cannot change and by the fact that I’m letting myself get annoyed. I have worries about the future like everybody else, but I WANT to be happy and […]

Covent Garden

I heard so many times about Covent Garden and on my last trip to London I penciled it in my schedule. When I arrived it was afternoon and the shops were open, the restaurants were busy and a band was singing. It was fun and colourful, I enjoyed it a lot. There are a few […]

Halloween linky and giveaway

I love Halloween! Before moving to the UK I didn’t know much about it and I had no idea in UK Halloween is an important celebration. In my first year in the UK I didn’t prepare anything beside this graveyard cake. Halloween turned out horrible, kids were coming for Trick-or-treating and I had no idea […]

When I was wondering what should I organize for our anniversary, I received an invitation from Tune Hotels to stay in their new hotel in Liverpool. My first thought was “this is so exciting” because I live in Liverpool, at only 20 minutes by car from the hotel. I told hubby we are going to […]

Blackpool and fireworks

For our 13th anniversary we’ve decided to go to Blackpool as there was a fireworks display for the Fireworks Championship and also there are the Illuminations. The amount of lights and decorations are impressive. The first lights in Blackpool were 8 arc lamps on the Promenade in 1879 and they were described as artificial sunshine. […]

13 years ago

I can’t believe it’s been such a long time, but 13 years ago I met hubby in a train. I wrote the story last year. From a quick look in my archive I realized that I don’t blog about our anniversaries; I must find them too personal to share. Last night we’ve been to an […]
