Going out

March roundup

I always try to think how I would describe my month in the roundup and, without a doubt, I would say that is was busy. I’m doing a lot of things, that is true. I blogged about a new pair of boots from Selfridges. Also, I shared details about a guest we have in the […]

Sci-Fi Weekender

Sci-Fi Weekender

Last weekend, my husband and I went to Pwllheli at the Sci-Fi Weekender. The lovely Rebecca from becster.com asked us if we would want to go to the event last year as she wanted to share the tickets she won with us. We were very happy to hear and also very keen on going. Initially […]

Meet Schrödinger, our Guest

Meet Schrodinger, our feline guest. You might recognize him from a post I did last month called Unexpected Cat in the Kitchen. Between the beginning of February and the end of March, we’ve had cold weather a few times, even snow. I mentioned in that post that she might be a stray cat. Sadly it […]

New Office boots from Selfridges

New Office boots from Selfridges

It’s the end of March. Who would have guessed I will make a post called New Office boots from Selfridges? I would have imagined a post about shoes would make more sense. But, with the cold weather we have these days, it’s actually quite appropriate. And, of course, I did buy a pair of boots […]

It was a one-day conference organized by the School of Histories, Languages and Cultures, Liverpool University and National Museums Liverpool. The event was organized to accompany the special exhibition at Walker Art Gallery by The Singh Twins. I booked my ticket a couple of […]

Wild duck

Wild birds and days out

Spring is coming, so this means more days out as the weather gets better and better. I wanted to visit again Bramall Hall (I will blog about it soon) and I remembered seeing there the wild birds. If, like me, you like to feed the birds, remember white bread can be detrimental to them, as […]

Bloggers and Real Lives

Bloggers and Real Lives

I’ve started blogging many years ago. In these years I’ve read many other blogs and I’ve seen discussions about bloggers and real lives on and off. Sadly, some of them are rants from bloggers that accuse other bloggers of being fake or, at least, not real. I’m going to talk about some of the things […]

Travel Memories Series

This month I’m starting Travel Memories Series. Recently I had a look on my old photos. I’ve realized I forgot a few of the places I’ve been to. Going on a holiday is wonderful, but remembering it after many years is even more wonderful. I love discovering new places, so it’s quite possible I’m never […]

Housemaid for my volunterring position


Today I’m going to the stately home. I’m doing volunteer work for the first task this year. I’ve also signed up for a couple of Sundays each month for the next 2-3 months. You might be asking why I’m writing about volunteering. Well, the first reason is that it’s something important for me and my […]
