Corona Chronicles – Week 2 Round-up

So, as you can see, I stopped the daily updates. Why, I hear you cry! Well that’s an easy answer… Because it’s boring! Nothing changes. Nothing happens. I don’t have kids or a husband to write about. I have Jane the Virgin and I can’t write about that because I don’t do spoilers.

Corona Chronicles – Day 7

Today started differently for sure. I woke with the desire to bake! A couple of days back Mum and I had been discussing scones, and she said that she had worked out a new recipe for chilli cheese scones. We have a bit of an addition to the chilli cheese flavour combo. If she thought…

Roast Dinner Diaries – Windsor Edition

Soooo, by now you should have worked out how much I like a roast dinner. You should also know that I have to have one every Sunday that I’m in the UK or it would be a waste. One person who certainly knows this about me is Justine. Last time I went to visit her…

Celeb Date Night!

Restarting my blog this week has already made it look like I’m a bit celebrity obsessed. Two of three posts with a famous chef. This is about to make it look even more true, when acutally I’ve generally not got a clue who anyone is. I mean, you’re talking to the girl who walked straight…

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…
