Saturday Brunch at Nineteen, Address Montgomerie

What an absolute pleasure to be able to write what is going to be an entirely positive post!  I have nothing but good things to say about this weekends brunching overindulgence! I’ve been to Nineteeen at the Address Montgomerie more times than I care to admit.  Each time I hoped it would be as good as…

T&Cs 

This week I was approached by a blog site called My Trending Stories (“MTS”). They had apparently seen one of my posts and enjoyed it. The initial approach was so complimentary that I was hugely flattered. Naturally I emailed back and asked for more information. A generic reply email was sent, but I was still…

Afternoon Tea at the Burj Al Arab

Every now and again I feel the need to act my age.  Thankfully its very rare, but when it does happen, instead of doing something boring I end up having a very lovely afternoon with one of my girlfriends at the Burj Al Arab! I should confess that it isn’t exactly how this wonderful day…

A year on…

It’s Dubai. Nothing stays the same for a whole year, right? Last July I went to Bollaro at the Conrad and loved it. I loved it so much that I wrote probably one of my nicest posts ever about it – which you can read here if you want. When I was invited to my…

Spell Check

I really wish spell check would also look at the title of the post.  I wonder how many I have the wrong spelling in?  Not too bad if you read the post online as I can amend and update, but you lovely email subscribers get to see all my glorious errors!  Sorry!!!

Complete Cupcake Catastrophe

(Yes… I am apparently very much enjoying all the alliterations at the moment!!) Months back I put out a plea on Facebook for someone to come with me to a cake decorating class I had found.  I didn’t think it would be The Boy’s cup of tea (although after actually discussing it with him, he…

Facebook Frustrations

I am not good in the mornings. My eyes may be open but it’s not a general indicator that all is well. It just means my eyes have decided that they are rested enough. My mind and body definitely do not agree with this 99% of the time. My way of waking myself up is…

Olympic Sized Objections to the Media

I feel a rant coming on. In case you’ve been living in a cave in the remote mountains of Outer Mongolia, you will know that the Olympics is on.  I have zero interest.  I never have, and unless I am invited to join Prince William and Prince Harry for a day, the likelihood of me…

Blueberries

Why are they called blueberries?  They look black or super dark purple on the outside.  Cut them in half and they are a weird greeny-yellow on the inside.  The juice that you get when you cut them is purple.  So why are they blueberries?  I don’t get it.

“Previously on…”

Am I the only one who absolutely hates shows that start with the incredibly annoying “Previously on…” voiceover and scenes? I feel insulted. I do not have the memory of a squashed gnat. My IQ is somewhere above 10 points. I am binge watching your stupid show for goodness sake. Even if I weren’t, if…
