Cooking like Mama

Comfort food. Your Mum does it better than anyone else on the planet. Have you noticed that? You can go to the beat chef types on the planet, but they still aren’t as good as your Mum. That’s the case for me anyway. My Mum is an amazing cook. I literally don’t know how she…

Healthy & Delicious Take Out

That’s right… it can happen! How? Kcal, that’s how! Today is a hungry day for me.  Probably because my brain knows that for pretty much the next 3 days, I won’t be able to eat.  Naturally, as my last proper meal, I wanted something that was healthy, fresh and balanced.  And a little treat on…

#LoveWins

This Friday, the US Supreme court announced that same sex marriage is legal in all States in America.  Those who currently have bans in place, will have them lifted.  There was only 14 states that it was illegal but that is 14 too many in my mind. Why, as someone who is straight and English,…

I missed you, GBK!

As some of you know, I have been a little under the weather recently.  I won’t bore you all with the details, but it has meant that I have had to go on a very strict “plain food” diet so I can get better.  Anyone who looks at me will know that I love to…

Christmadan Party

Nope… not a spelling error!  We had a lovely Christmadan Party this weekend! What is it?  Easy!  It’s a Christmas Party held in Ramadan.  It’s not as disrespectful as it sounds! Expats often hold Christmas parties half way through the year.  I don’t know why.  It just happens!  Anyway, this year it happened to fall…

Bit of an epic rant……

So, here’s the thing…  I have a nut allergy.  It doesn’t appear to be as severe as it once was, but I am not going to test that theory out by ingesting any!  I may however go back and get further testing as it’s well over 7yrs since I last had it done and it…

Taxis

There’s a new one! Have you seen?! Does anyone know what classification this one falls under?!    

Interesting…

Ok, so it’s probably not but my most popular post by far is one that I wrote whilst drunk about a cute boy that was on Instagram.  I hadn’t logged in to this in ages, so was really surprised to see that despite not blogging, I had ‘views’ every day.  Turns out, 99% of them…

Good Eats

With Ramadan upon us, there is a much smaller selection of eataries that you can nip into for a bite when you’re out shopping and ravenous.  This is generally a bad thing in my mind. It was a near epic melt down when the restaurant I wanted to go to was shut!  In fairness, I…

Random Thought

Linen. How is it possible to wear linen and not look like something that’s been chewed and spat out? It’s not. Generally. However… Have you noticed though that there is a group who can? They are all ladies “of a certain age” who still, by some miracle, do not have any signs of aging on…
