Escape room Manchester

What can be better on a weekday than to try something new? I was delighted to be invited to the blogger event held at The Escape room Manchester. My husband and I worked all day and we were ready to have fun. The Escape room is in a great location, close to the city centre. […]

Stainsby Mill

A few days ago my husband and I went to Stainsby Mill. It’s part of National Trust, along with the Hardwick Estate. The current mill was built in the 19th century. The Victorian mill is still operational. We had a guided tour and it was lovely, we learned so many things about the mill. The […]

Electric Mountain

In our trip to Wales, we’ve been to Electric Mountain. The name is pretty much self explanatory, as it’s a guided tour of the Dinorwig Power Station. The power station is in Elidir Mountain and it’s one of the largest man made caverns in Europe. The power station converts the power of water into electricity […]

C’est la vie

I was delighted to be invited to join the latest campaign organized by lights by TENA. The campaign is called C’est la vie, a perfect name for the idea behind it, as it’s about the Oooops moments™. Lights by TENA has sent me a lovely kit with foolproof solutions, easy to sort out everyday issues, […]

Houses in Essex

In our trip to Essex I noticed beautiful embellishments on many houses. I took a few pictures to share them on my blog. Although I’m not too keen on the subject, the level of craftsmanship is impressive. I like the features, the grass looks realistic, the trees have also lots of details. The house in […]

5 Good things

Tonight I’m eager to see the football game between England and Slovakia, I’m sure it will be exciting. It was a busy time for us, so in the last couple of weeks we didn’t get to do lots of things (that I can blog about). I have a few topics for posts ready and I’m […]

BBC Gardener’s World Live

I mentioned when I blogged about BBC Good Food Show Summer yesterday that I went to BBC Gardener’s World Live too. It was the first time at this show. It is similar to the Harrogate Flower Show, pretty much the same size. There was a flower marquee and the flowers were wonderful. All the exhibitors […]

BBC Good Food Show Summer

Yesterday, my husband and I got in the car and headed up to BBC Good Food Show in Birmingham. It’s the second show I’m going to, as last year we’ve been to Good Food Show in Harrogate. This weekend both BBC Good Food Show and BBC Gardener’s World Live are at the NEC, so there […]

Diglake Farm Shop

This month I’ve been to Diglake Farm Shop for my monthly farm shop visit. As farms are getting further from me it’s a little bit more difficult to go to new ones and I find myself going to the ones that I already know. Last month I’ve missed the monthly farm post for this reason. […]

Rex Whistler

Rex Whistler was a British artist born in 1905. He had an amazing talent, but he died in the Second World War, at only 39. He was commissioned at the age of 23 to paint a mural at Tate Gallery restaurant, quite impressive I might add. He also painted a few murals. The most renowned […]
