My First Wreath Making Attempt

Hands up if you didn’t know that I was addicted to the Hallmark Channel! No one? Oh good! So it won’t come as much of a surprise then that when given the chance to go wreath making, I absolutely jumped at it!

Haskins Garden Centre

One way you can shift me off the couch the day after an overnight flight with maybe a total of an hours sleep, is to bribe me with breakfast. A cooked breakfast. A proper cooked breakfast with bacon. And sausage. And egg.

Christmassing with the Family

Everyone always says that Christmas is about the children. I mostly agree with that statement although like to think that I’m actually still a child really so it’s about me too! This year however I went back to the UK in the run up to Christmas and spent time with my niece and nephews. I…

My Chocolate

As laid out in my previous two posts (here and here), Mummy and I do love a good adventure.  With this in mind and knowing that I would be home on certain dates, I bought us a chocolate making class via Virgin Experiences.  It was a bit of a random gamble but I went with…

Our London Adventure – Pt 2

After eating a lot of very yummy pasta at Prezzo, and realising that it was technically still Rush Hour, we decided to walk across the road to Trafalgar Square.  Naturally I had to sing “Feed the Birds” despite the fact there are no birds to feed anymore. I couldn’t tell you the last time I…

My Holibops

Friendship, reflection and self realisation

In the last few years I have taken a number of hits in regards to friendships.  People who I thought were very good friends have disappeared.  It has hurt, but I have made peace with it. However, it all came up again this morning when I discovered that someone had blocked me from their social…

Bay Square

There is a little known area behind Downtown called Bay Square.  It is technically Business Bay but it is, in my mind, too far from the main area to count! It isn’t going to be little known for much longer though as there is a Double Tree by Hilton that is just open, and they…
