Pizza & Prosecco

What a winning combination, right!  If you then add on top an all in one price, then you win BIG time! All you can eat pizza and all you can drink prosecco all for the princely sum of AED 149 for ladies, or AED 199 for the gents.  Not only can you drink prosecco, there is…

Drusillas Park, East Sussex

Not the scariest vampire ever putting together her torture ideas á la the London Dungeon, but actually a lovely family park full of non-predator type cute animals! (I was only the tiniest bit disappointed. Much as she completely ‘wigged me out’, I always thought Dru was one of the best vampire villains!) My wonderful Mum…

Hello! Who are you?

Over the last few days I’ve had an unusually high number of visitors to my blog. So much so that WordPress keeps sending me alerts to tell me!  Hello new people!  But seriously, who are you?!  Hope to see some replies in the comments so I can work out why I have become so popular…

2nd Nomination!!

Yep!  I’ve found the energy after my incredibly long last post to tell you about my second award! Also nominated by the lovely Expat Panda, this time for the Blogger Recognition Award.  It’s another cyber hug really but again, I am really touched to have been thought of given how many bloggers there are out…

Oops…

So after my last post which was full of good intentions, I feel that I should confess to my breakfast. Sorry about that. I do have some nice positive recipe posts all set up and ready to go. I just wanted to be honest.  Thank you to the Clinton Street Baking Company for once again…

The Burj Club 

Back in September, I started writing this post but got all distracted and never posted!  When I say write, I mean that I put the photos on here and captioned them. Nearly 3 months on and I still think this was a really lovely pool day but a little too urban for me.  When it…

Beautiful Bab Al Shams 

After a little taxi nap and swim, it was time to get ourselves together and head off to Bab Al Shams; a beautiful hotel in the middle of the desert. One of the only things Albert had wanted to do was to ride a camel. Although not a long excursion, Bab Al Shams has this…

London Has Fallen

As you know, I don’t often post about anything that’s not food, but I feel like I should today. The Boy came back from his recent trip ladened with DVD’s he’d picked up along the way.  I am more of a Netflix/Apple TV girl, but bless his little old fashioned heart, he still loves buying…

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…
