Jewel Tower and my little piece of history

On our trip to London we’ve been to Jewel Tower, built 650 years ago to house the treasures and it was a part of the medieval Palace of Westminster. On the ground floor is the visitor centre and the tea rooms. The Palace of Westminster looks so beautiful from the tower. These old wooden posts […]

Rufford Abbey

I’ve been to the beautiful Rufford Abbey a couple of weeks ago and I didn’t have the time to blog about it as my blogging schedule was so busy. The abbey is set in the heart of Robin Hood’s Country and it’s only a few minutes away from Sherwood Forest. It has free admission to […]

Sherwood forest

On Monday I’ve been to the Sherwood forest, home of Robin Hood and the Major Oak. It was cold, but the walk through the forest was lovely. When we arrived we saw lots of birds near the car park. There are bird feeding stations on almost all the posts of the fence and in the […]

Donington Park

Yesterday was my birthday. I had a wonderful time, a great meal and drinks in evening; my husband baked an amazing cake and he gave me a gift I really wanted. During the day, as I love F1, hubby and I went to see Donington Park, an F1 museum a couple of hours from us. […]

Favourite place in UK, linky

In a few days I will celebrate the 4th anniversary of moving to UK. It’s a thing I do… I celebrate anything I can remember to celebrate. So, this year I want to talk about my favourite place in UK and to host a linky where bloggers can share their favourite places. I like a […]

A couple of days in London

It seems that lately I’m blogging more about London, but this month I’ve spent another couple of days there. Should I mention I’m thinking of another short trip next month too? This time we had some work to do as well and we didn’t have lots of time for sightseeing. Even so, I’m going to […]

Stoney Middleton

Last weekend we’ve been to Stoney Middleton to attend the Well Dressing celebrations . The village is beautiful and picturesque, so I made a post about it. I took a map from the local pub with a circular walk around the village. On a sunny day it was a delight. Stoney Middleton is a village […]

Changing the Guard at Buckingham Palace

As a Royalist, Changing the Guard at Buckingham Palace was high on my list of things to see in London. The ceremony takes 45 minutes and it starts at 11.15. There is an app but we didn’t get it. The privilege of guarding the Sovereign traditionally belongs to The Guards, also known as Household Troops. […]

9 Good things

I had a very busy period, lots of things to blog about and I kept postponing the good things post. I wanted to mention F1 in the list, but the sad news about Jules Bianchi made it impossible to count it as a good thing. 1. Fresh fruits from the garden. These delicious summer fruits […]

Cliveden woods

Cliveden is part of National Trust, a little over an hour’s drive from central London. As we didn’t have enough time to visit the house too, we’ve only been to the Cliveden woods. There are 3 different trails to follow, but as it was late, we wondered around, looking at signs and we managed to […]
