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

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 […]

Highlights from Liverpool

Highlights from Liverpool

Today it should have been another post published on my blog, about the places I visited in the last 12 months, but with COVID, that was not possible. Do you remember my post from last year? As travelling was not exactly possible this year, I’m going to share highlights from Liverpool. I did not include […]

Mandarin Lesson

Mandarin Lesson

My husband and I had a Mandarin Lesson taster session and it was so much fun. It was online, obviously, and we got the chance of learning about tones, which give a very different meaning to the words. As you can see in the picture, ma can mean either mother, fibre, horse, curse, or a […]

5 Instagram accounts I love

5 Instagram accounts I love

I discovered recently some lovely Instagram accounts and I want to share them. All are accounts for animal rescues and they share snippets from the daily lives of the animals they care for. Of course, all these are charitable organizations, so please consider making a donation or buying a gift (maybe for Christmas) from them. […]

Coronavirus testing

Coronavirus testing

I want to talk today about coronavirus testing and how my experience was, as I voluntary took part in the newest government program of mass testing in Liverpool. First of all, I should say that I’m delighted that our mayor, Joe Anderson, decided to put his political views aside (he is from the opposition party) […]
