Pontcysyllte Aqueduct

We’ve visited Pontcysyllte Aqueduct in Wrexham, Wales. The name means “the bridge that connects”. It is very impressive to see it. It has 18 piers and 19 arches and the River Dee runs beneath it. It was designed by Thomas Telford and William Jessop was the canal engineer involved in this project. The building started […]

My boy

Usually I post pictures of Festus on his blog, but I really love this one, he was looking at me.


We stayed in Birmingham for a week, having a trade show. On Festus’s blog I wrote about the accommodation, perfect for our needs. The house was at a 15 min drive to NEC and 20 min drive to Birmingham city center, but in a small village. I loved the local pub, we went there twice […]

Kardashian shoes

This weekend I received my new Kardashian shoes!! This is my 1st pair of gold shoes and they are lovely. I was a little reluctant to buy shoes online, especially when I didn’t have the chance of trying them on. They fit perfect and I’m very happy with them.

Great Orme Ancient Mines

This weekend we’ve been to Wales. This time we’ve visited Conwy Water Gardens and the Great Orme Acient Mines. Conwy Water Gardens is a lovely place. There is duck food available to buy and the ducks are very friendly. We arrived at 10.30pm, perfect time to see the otters. They are hungry and very active […]

Home & Gift, Harrogate, 2013

This week, hubby and I went to Home&Gift trade show in Harrogate. It was a nice drive to there, even if I felt we had to spend too much time passing thru Leeds. The trade show was as I’ve expected, different than the Jewellery Show in London, but nice. I wasn’t impressed with some exhibitors […]


My name is Anca and I am a serial plant killer. I killed my flowers/plants. I killed hubby’s citrus trees and 3 bonsai (grown from seed). I nearly killed all the plants from my office, they survived only because the cleaning lady begged me to stop “looking after” the plants. But, I’m persistent and I […]

Trip to Wales

As I said in the last post, if the weather is fine we planned something special. So, this Friday we went in Wales with friends. We didn’t take Festus with us because we weren’t sure how crowded it would be and what we were visiting next. It was a very wise choice, as our friends […]


This month was great and busy at the same time. At the beginning of the month we worked as usual and in the weekends we went to the events in Liverpool or we’ve meat friends… or both. On 11th I went to London and I’ve stayed there for a few days at a friend. The […]

On the Waterfront

The last 3 weekends Liverpool hosted another great event. I was very busy these days and I just had the chance to put some of the pictures taken at the event. In May it was the 70th anniversary of the battle of the Atlantic. We visited HMS Edinburgh, in Birkenhead. It was a special event, […]
