Festus' 11th gotcha day

December 2020

December was an incredible month, UK was the first country to authorize a vaccine for COVID-19 and in 2 weeks over 600,000 people were vaccinated. How amazing is that. After rather surprising comments from Fauci and EU about the rapidity in which the vaccine was approved in UK… US approved the same one and over […]

All three

Christmas 2020

As I do each year, I’m sharing pictures from our Christmas. For us Christmas was not too dissimilar from the previous years, as we always celebrate the Christmas at home, all three of us. We’ve decided to take selfies instead of the staged photos. Festus did great and looked directly at the camera. It was […]

best 9 in 2020

Best 9 in 2020. Lifestyle. Recipes. Books

Today I’m sharing the most popular posts this year, over my three blogs. So, it’s a top 3 in each case. To pick the best 9 in 2020, I looked over the stats, as in views and also took into consideration the comments, but to a much lower extent. Of course, some of the posts […]


The Vegan Kind. December Boxes

This is the third month I’m speaking about the The Vegan Kind subscription boxes. I am loving these and I will continue to get them in 2021. The lifestyle box is a monthly subscription with prices starting at £8 + P&P. The most expensive one is £10 + P&P, so not very expensive at all. […]

Knowsley Safari Park, December

Last weekend we’ve been to Knowsley Safari Park for our December visit. We did not book for the evening because, if there are any places left, for the Santa event, I think it would be better to leave those for families with children. We had a drive-through the safari and it was incredible. I shared […]

Michaelmas Term

Michaelmas Term

I can’t believe the second Michaelmas term ended this week. It’s been a longer term, which started in early September with a full-time week, 8 hours/day, before starting work on the first essay. It was really different than the first year, as I did a few new things, which I’m going to talk about next. […]

Bake Off 2020

Bake Off 2020

Bake Off was at the 11th series. I baked along, again, but this time I made only vegan items. I will talk about in detail, but, before that I should say that this is, most likely, the last year I’m baking along. Furthermore, this might be the last year I’m watching Bake Off. It got […]

Christmas Gift Guide Books. Barack Obama

Christmas Gift Guide: Books

I’ve decided to make a Christmas Gift Guide with Books for book lovers and not only. All the books I’ve included are non-fiction because this is what I most enjoy, but, at the same time, it’s something that it’s more likely to remain on the bookshelves of the people who might receive one or two […]

Christmas Dinner

November 2020

I can’t start to talk about this month without thinking of the horrific accident that happened in yesterday’s F1 race. Romain Grosjean crashed into the barrier, with the car splitting in half and the part with the cockpit turned into a fireball, and I’m not exaggerating in any way. It was so distressing to see […]
