Ting Irie – Update

As you know, I went to Ting Irie for Iftar in June, and was quite impressed. However.. Now I am even more impressed!!! I went back with a friend who also happens to be an ex-Bermuda expat.  She had seen it was finally open and also needed to get her fix of jerk spices. Firstly,…

In Remembrance 

4.5yrs ago I had the most heartbreaking email. My friend Alexei Kuzmichev had died. He was found dead of a heart attack on New Years Day, at the age of 36. This week would have been his 40th birthday. He was my “crazy little Russian”. My friend. My coworker. We had a running joke between…

Packing, Partying & Rugby

The packing does not work with the partying and the rugby at all!  Nor does blogging. I finished work last Friday and haven’t really stopped since.  It has to be said that my final day at work was not easy, but I feel so much better!  According to a couple of friends, I look much…

Packing – The Never Ending Task

It seriously never ends.  For every case you pack, more stuff appears out of no where and demands to be in the next case.  How does that work??? I worked it out the other day.  I sent home 2 cases with Mummy in  the summer, and two with my flatmate when she went on holiday last…

The Weekend

Well, compared to the weekend before, I did absolutely nothing! I did manage to get to a fancy dress party or two though, which was great fun.  Dressing up is one of the seriously amusing parts of Bermuda.  Costume Parties are held regularly, and for the daftest of reasons! I did manage to get some sorting…

Tropical Storm Shary

Seriously?!  A Tropical Storm this late in the season AND on a weekend?? Unfortunately, yes. On the plus side, because I need to try to think positively, it is coming on a Friday night.  This means that the worst can be when I am either a) in a bar, or b) curled up on the sofa…

Sunday’s Snorkeling

One of the items on my bucket list was to snorkel at Tobacco Bay in St. Georges.  Not exactly sure why as my last snorkeling experience was about 4 years ago and scared me so much  I haven’t done it since. It turns out that four years is enough to lessen the panic so I…

Saturday’s Sightseeing

My friend and I took the insane Delilah (see pic) for a ‘little’ walk along the Somerset section of the Railway Trail.  It was a very pleasant walk, but there wasn’t much to see.  On the brochure it said that there were stunning sea views.  I guess there would be if those damn trees were…

Weekend of Adventuring!

With only a limited number of weekends available to me now, I had to make the most of the one just gone… and I am still recovering!! Friday saw the 1st birthday of my friends beautiful son.  He has spent the last year melting my heart, entertaining me, and keeping me happy and positive, so it…

Introducing Me!

Hello, My name is Sharon and this is my blog.  I am not a computer geek so it could take quite some time before I have this looking right!! As my “about” section states, I have been living and working in Bermuda for about 5 years now.  Before I go any further, I would like…
