The Kelpies at night

I just got back from Scotland, if you follow me on Instagram you might have seen the pictures. My husband and I liked Scotland a lot and we’ve managed to see quite a few places in a few days. We’ve been to Glasgow and, of course, Gretna Green. Because we didn’t have a lot of […]

Richmondshire museum

I mentioned we visited Richmondshire museum when we’ve been to Richmond castle in North Yorkshire. The museum is close to the castle and it has pretty interesting exhibits on display. The museum starts with the Cruck House, a house that was moved from 5 miles away, stone-by-stone. The house has its name after the method […]

What we did on Halloween

Before moving to UK, my husband and I didn’t celebrate Halloween. I had no intentions of celebrating until I saw so many things in the shop, decorations and costumes and so on. It was exciting, so I said we should do something. I’m getting more and more excited about Halloween, as I love having kids […]

Jewellery Quarter Museum

Last week my husband and I went to Jewellery Quarter Museum in Birmingham. We’ve been to the Jewellery Quarter before, but didn’t visit the museum until now. For anybody with a love for jewellery and history, this is the perfect place. The workshop looks exactly like it was in 1981, when everybody left and locked […]

The post about Kew Gardens is the last one from our trip to London this month. We have another trip to London planned for next month, so plenty of London related posts will follow. Maybe even faster if I’ll have a couple of hours more to spear on Monday, when I’m going to London with […]

Kensington Palace

I mentioned I’ve been to Kensington Palace in my post about the Household Cavalry Museum. Queen Victoria was born at Kensington Palace and in front of the palace is a beautiful statue of her, designed by one of her daughters, Princess Louise. I saw this in a documentary about Victoria and I find it fascinating. […]

Pick your own Pumpkin

In the weekend we’ve been to a local farm, just 25 minutes away, to pick our pumpkin. My husband and I talked before going to pick up the pumpkin and we’ve decided to take just one. We’ll get another closer to Halloween. It was the first time we’ve been to Kenyon Hall Farm and we […]

Timeline British History review and giveaway

A few months ago, in May, I’ve reviewed Timeline and Dobble. I loved those games and I was delighted to be sent the newest Timeline game: British History. I learned British history mostly by watching movies (The Tudors, Outlander), documentaries and visiting museums and locations managed by English Heritage and National Trust. It’s an amazing […]
