Nancy Pelosi

April 2024

April was great because we went to Leeds for jousting, to Manchester for CuppaPug, had a day trip to Winchester, and because I saw Nancy Pelosi at an event in Oxford. But, it was amazing, because we went to Ukraine! Firstly, these are two pictures with Nancy Pelosi. She is fantastic, on heels, full of […]


Trip to Ukraine. Why and How

I had no memories of Ukraine because I’ve never been there before. I had images of Ukraine and ideas of what Ukraine meant by following the news, reading the history of the country, interacting with Ukrainians, following closely the developments on the frontline (watching trench footage and drone footage), and donating to different causes (lethal […]


March 2024

In March we travelled a lot, as you can see in this post. We’ve been to Bristol, London (twice), Blackpool, Windsor, and Leeds. I’ve finished the second term for my Master’s and now I am working on my dissertation. I gave a presentation in the lecture theatre of my college and attended two workshops, besides […]


February 2024

February was a difficult month. The war entered its third year and more provocations are created by russia in Moldova. On the 24th I went to London to take part in the march. This month Chubbchubbs died, only three months away from his 19th birthday. He lived with my mother for over a decade, but […]

January 2024

I started the second term at Oxford, it’s called Hilary, which is the patron-saint of lawyers (funny, isn’t it?). I am back in Oxford, being very busy with all sorts of lectures and seminars, formals, socials. We went to London for a day and watched the commemorations for Charles I, which I am going to […]

These are my 2024 goals! They are very much like the ones in 2023 for the large part. Goals for 2024: Blogs 1. Post regularly. This means all books reviewed on Coffee&Books, a few recipes on CookStyle, and at least 4 posts a month. So, that means 52 posts on ancaslifestyle. 2. Reviews for Vegan […]


Goals for 2023. How I did.

These are my 2023 goals! As usual, if I don’t do all of them, I’m not bothered at all. All the goals are modest and easy to do, so, hopefully, all will be done. Everything is available to see on the three blogs, but I didn’t add links as it would be too many links […]


December 2023

In December I finished my first term at Oxford and we went back home to Liverpool. It was a busy month, as usual, but we had pretty lovely time nevertheless. I read a lot this month, for my studies, as I have a few deadlines in early January. This helped me reach the number on […]

after dark

November 2023

I was so busy with the end of the term that I didn’t have the time to write this post in the last day of the month as I usually do. I will change the date to November in a couple of weeks. I finished the first term at Oxford and I’m very happy with […]


October 2023

This was a very busy month, with us moving to Oxford for my studies. I only had time to read 2 books and visit 3 places, we went twice to London and Liverpool. I’m enjoying the crazy schedule, but I have to admit at first it was a bit overwhelming. I have things scheduled almost […]
