Clarens

For years now, Albert and I have wanted to go to Clarens. This year when we were having a look at the route we would need to take down to the Sani Pass, we noted that Clarens wasn’t too far and we made a plan to stop there for breakfast!

A Quickie from the air

If you’ve followed this blog for long, you will know that I am a big fan of clouds.  The best place to see clouds is to be in or over them.  Sadly I don’t have wings, so the best place is in the window seat of an airplane. As is now becoming a bit of…

KK’s Texan Grill House, South Croydon

I have mentioned before that one of the bonuses about being an expat is all the lovely people you meet that you normally wouldn’t have, but that it’s sad when those lovely people leave.  It’s not as bad though when they end up just down the road from your family! Lesley is one of those…

Le Raj, Banstead, Surrey

The spot of “My Favourite Restaurant” is a really tricky one to fill.  I like so many different types of food, and have been fortunate enough to eat in so many different countries, that I can never quite decide on an absolute winner.  I mean, how do you choose between your favourite steak place vs…

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…

Jacoby’s Tavern & Kitchen

Every time we went to visit Grandma in the later years, and certainly since I moved abroad, she would like to treat us to a nice lunch out. There was only one or two places that would pass muster, and Jacoby’s was one of them.  With that in mind, there was really only one place…

Ware to start!?

Ware in Hertfordshire, that’s where!! My childhood revolved around trips to Ware as it is where my grandparents lived.  I have so many happy memories of seeing Grandma and Granddad, but also our extended family too.  As I explained in my last post, I have a wonderful set of God-parents and all of them came…
