The Barge House, London N1

You know how every now and again you see something on Instagram and think “I need that”?  It could be a new face mask, or a mermaid blanket, or something delicious to eat.  But you just know that you will have to have it in your life at some point. Well, that was me and…

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…

Our London Adventure – Pt 1

As anyone who has read my blog knows, Mummy and I do enjoy a good adventure.  We also like stage shows.  We do like food too.  So when we go off adventuring and it includes not only a show but yummy eats too, we feel like we have hit the jackpot! One such trip was…

The Two Brewers, Windsor

After our incredibly long walk down the aptly named “Long Walk” in Windsor Great Park, we were thrilled to see that literally next to the Castle was the pub we were booked into for lunch. The Two Brewers is absolutely one of those ‘local knowledge’ places. 

The Great Windsor Walk

One of the fabulous things about being an expat is that you get to meet a bunch of awesome people that you wouldn’t have if you had stayed in your home town.  Not only that, you tend to find serial expats are fairly like-minded and have a great sense of adventure. One such person is…

My Holibops

Hello everyone! I’ve been a bit quite because a) I wasn’t very well and b) then I went home for a couple of weeks of “rest”.  It is never actually a restful holiday as any expat knows.  It is literally spent chasing around seeing as many friends as you can, and trying to maximise your…

I’m Proud of Me

That is not a statement that you will hear very often, but in this case it is completely true! Recently I was invited karting.  Yes, people still do the go-karting thing that I thought had died out back in the early 2000’s!  I was really chuffed to be asked along because it’s a group I…

Backyard Movies at the Steigenberger Hotel, Business Bay

Waaaaay back in January I was scrolling through Facebook when an interesting event caught my eye.  The Steigenberger Hotel was doing ourdoor movies, in a bar/restaurant called The Backyard. I love watching movies under the stars so I phoned (ok, that’s a lie… I whatsapp’d) Carla to see if she would mind moving our Ladies…

“My Amazing Dubai Trip”

Guest post by my fabulous Mummy!! On the 21st of December, leaving my two dogs and my house in the loving care of my friend Colleen, I set off and arrived in Dubai.  Daughter 1 met me at the airport and after a light tea we went to bed ready to start our adventuring the…
