A Wee Winter Weekend in Scotland

Hello there! Can you believe that just as we were visited by the #beastfromtheeast and Storm Emma we had a trip to Scotland booked? Whilst the pictures on Social Media were of a beautiful winter it was a bit of a gamble to go to a place where folks were snowed in! But I am…

German Saturday Market

Before Christmas my travels took me to Germany , a place I’ve never been. I loved it! It was a flying visit with a day and a half in Bonn and half a day in cologne. I will definitely go back. No trip anywhere is complete without a trip to the local market and the…

Simply THE BEST Chocolate Cake EVER!

I am faced with a choice here, in terms of thankfulness, to my Scandinavian relatives: For my lovely daughter-in-law. For introducing my family to ‘Kladdkaka’ or Sticky Chocolate Cake. Obviously there isn’t really a choice here! She wins hands down but Sticky Chocolate Cake comes a very close second. It is the most popular Cake…

A year of well-being and simple living

YOUR BODY WILL BE AROUND A LOT LONGER THAN THAT EXPENSIVE HANDBAG. INVEST IN YOURSELF. I found December especially hard last year and already by January 6th I am feeling better.

Quietly….counting rainbows

Hello there my lovely friends. I am slipping by quietly, very quietly. I am OK but struggling somewhat. Is it because of the pre-Christmas madness or the lack of sun? I love all the photos of snow that people have been sharing, but I hate it. The cold and the dark are suffocating and it…
