August 2020

If my last month I said it could be described with the word gardening, this month the word would be: food! Thanks to Rishi Sunak [for non-Brits – he is Chancellor of the Exchequer, appointed in Feb this year] and his marvellous idea of the Eat Out to Help Out scheme [the state pays for […]

Vertigo - Hoi Sin Seiten Bao Buns

Vertigo, Manchester

Vertigo is a chain of 3 vegan restaurants in Manchester. We’ve been for dinner earlier this week and I loved it! I will share my thoughts on the three course meal we had, so prepare to see some delicious food. They are participating in the Eat Out to Help Out campaign, but, as it is […]

My new garden

I’m finally sharing pictures from my new garden. I’ve been using the garden, since it’s done, every single day. If is not raining or is not too hot, I would spend time in the garden reading for University. I even listen to lectures, with the headphones on, of course, as I imagine none of my […]

Embleys Nurseries - shrubs

Embleys Nurseries

I will talk in a couple of days about my garden, but, until then, I want to share my thoughts on Embleys Nurseries, a garden centre close to Liverpool. We’ve been to two other garden centres, besides the ones in the DIY stores and I wasn’t impressed with how the plants looked. Well, at Embleys […]

We booked for dinner, taking advantage, again, of the Eat Out to Help Out scheme. We’ve had a lovely meal and […]

First of all, we’ve had a lovely vegan picnic in their picnic area. There are designated spots with parking and social distancing is very easy to be respected, […]

Cuprinol Garden Shades

I mentioned a few times so far that we’ve been in the process of refurbishing our garden and a few rooms in the house. Like many people during lockdown, we took advantage of staying at home to do bits and pieces we’ve postponed. This meant that for last couple of months I’ve painted lots! For […]

Allotment Vegan Eatery - Outside

Allotment Vegan Eatery

Allotment Vegan Eatery is a restaurant in Manchester. They too are participating in the Eat Out to Help Out scheme, so we took advantage and visited them earlier this week. We’ve decided to go for a 3 course meal despite being a bit late, as I was very curious how their food is. I’ve been […]

A dog and three lions

Festus’ 11th birthday is next month, so it’s pretty amazing that he is still so playful and full of energy. He has some age related issues, but these do not stop him from enjoying his life to the fullest. Enjoy pictures and a short, 2 minutes, clip with him. In the movie I give him […]
