Design & Dine

Ever on the look out for something new to try, when Mandy suggested a girls painting night, I didn’t ask any questions. I just said yes! Design & Dine were hosting an evening at Pure Sky Lounge at the Hilton Jumeirah Beach. For AED300 you could paint yourself a “legend”, have unlimited drinks and some…

Over the Edge Cottage, Underberg, KZN

After an incredibly long and arduous drive through from Clarens, we drove into Underberg with a bit of a sinking heart. It was a tiny little town and there weren’t very obvious sign posts or road names anywhere. Thankfully we had our satnav and once it had taken us to completely the wrong place, it…

Movies under the stars

As I have said a hundred times before, one of my favourite things about being an expat is meeting people from all different backgrounds. Dubai is a great place for that. It’s a literal melting pot of every single nationality there is I think. This week was the Omani’s turn to shine! And shine he…

DIY Dining!

This was an absolutely random find, but possibly one of my favorites ever! A restaurant that lets you play with your food! I know this isn’t a new concept but it is indeed a great one that I need more fun with. As you all know, I like exploring and I will basically try any…

Decisions, decisions…

I have been toying with the idea of deleting this blog. I don’t know if I want to write it any more. I still don’t. I thought I would just type a bunch of words and see what comes out. A stream of consciousness if you will. I normally talk these things out with people…

Edi’s Bratwurst Sausage Restaurant and B&B, KZN

The second of Albert’s friend’s recommendations was a German sausage place that when we googled it appeared it had shut down. We were disappointed but we had some really good foods in the Midlands Meander area, so weren’t too perturbed. As we were driving towards the final accommodation of our adventure, we saw a sign…

Corona Chronicles – Week 3 Round-up

I can’t believe another week has gone by so quickly. I didn’t think it would really. I imagined it would drag by and be hugely painful. I’m lucky I guess that isn’t the case. I think my medication helps that but also because this week I decided to be more productive.

Corona Chronicles – Week 2 Round-up

So, as you can see, I stopped the daily updates. Why, I hear you cry! Well that’s an easy answer… Because it’s boring! Nothing changes. Nothing happens. I don’t have kids or a husband to write about. I have Jane the Virgin and I can’t write about that because I don’t do spoilers.

Corona Chronicles – Day 7

Today started differently for sure. I woke with the desire to bake! A couple of days back Mum and I had been discussing scones, and she said that she had worked out a new recipe for chilli cheese scones. We have a bit of an addition to the chilli cheese flavour combo. If she thought…

Corona Chronicles – Day 6

I have come to the conclusion that I am a very boring person. 5 days of writing the Corona Chronicles and the most exciting thing that I have written is that I am learning Spanish and that I have discovered amazing new floaty pills.
