I can’t quite get over the fact that I ‘own’ an eleven year old. I don’t own, she’s just on long-term loan, but you know what I mean. As they get older the parties get harder to organise, and I’m ever hopeful that they might be over although that being said, this one was delightful … [Read more…]
The grandmothership turned 103 on 15th August and this year we celebrated with a trip to Sissinghurst Gardens. Not being a garden person myself I thought we’d just be catching Pokemon and preparing my belly for a lunchtime feast, however, I was really taken with the gardens and the story or Harold and Vita who … [Read more…]
We hired bikes for a few days which enabled us to a) burn beer & baklava calories b) see this beautiful island from a different perspective c) kill our legs, especially his, mine are spin-fit 😉 and d) just take it easy and soak up the warm October sunshine without dehydrating or burning. That said, … [Read more…]
I spent a near perfect weekend with one of my bestest friends in the whole world. I say near perfect as we had a run-in with an electric car. Never ever buy, hire, accept a lift from an electric car. I shall say no more. We drove down to the Seven Sisters Country Park and … [Read more…]
For her tenth birthday – yes 10 – we decided to keep is small and intimate and treat ourselves to a decadent afternoon tea on board a lovely London bus. The BB Bakery bus tour was a fun & sugary way to celebrate our little girl’s double figures. But blimey there was a lot of … [Read more…]
Well, we went and already it feels like many many moons ago. I’ve been to Zante quite a few times now and this time was by far the best – with my babies, swimming until 8pm every day, tzatziki with every meal. Bliss.
I really like that milky green glass you can find, although i don’t own any. And I love the idea of Cleopatra bathing in milk, although not sure why she would, her skin may have felt softer but she would have smelt a bit ripe in the Egyptian heat. With this in mind one rainy … [Read more…]
This month saw the re-opening on one of my childhood memories: Dreamland. Margate has been a favourite place of mine to visit for a long time and I’ve previously captured the Grade II listed wooden scenic railway (which strangely burned down a few years back whilst competitions for its renovation were going on) and Arlington … [Read more…]
Having just posted images from Dreamland‘s opening weekend I thought I’d dig through the archives and see what I have from before renovation and before the fire which damaged the Grade II listed scenic railway.
Seeing as I’ve mentioned Arlington House in my Dreamland post I thought I’d share some old photos that I’d taken there before. I’m not sure what the future hold for this tower block now, follow this link for more detail, I know Tescos were after it at some point. Please no, surely anyone can see … [Read more…]
