Cool Lifts and Cardigans

Hannah was late again (see I told you that would be the first line Hannah!). If you’ve been following my adventures for a while you’ll know Hannah is that late friend. We all have one. And if you think you don’t, then it’s probably you. We’ll forgive her this time, again, as it was her… Continue reading Cool Lifts and Cardigans

Show Me The Dough – Mindoro (Norwich)

I’m terrible with street names, tell me it’s near that Starbucks on the corner, or just past the book shop. It’s opposite the market or where the good chippy is. I was looking for somewhere interesting to have a birthday catch up with friends (I know I’ve had that surprise tea party, but that was… Continue reading Show Me The Dough – Mindoro (Norwich)

Courgette Cakes and Steampunk Coffee – Alchemista Norwich

I’d seen work being done on a building on St Gregory’s Alley a few months back while I was eating chips from Grosvenor Fish Bar. Actually it must have been quite a few months ago, as on this occasion I believe I was eating outdoors, which never happens as much as I’d like due to… Continue reading Courgette Cakes and Steampunk Coffee – Alchemista Norwich

Best Nine of 2017

I’ve very much enjoyed my first attempt at blogmas, my ‘Sporadic Blogmas’ this year. I know I haven’t posted everyday, but I did warn you that was never going to happen. I couldn’t keep up the momentum and I’d probably run out of interesting things to say. That’s if anything I say is ‘interesting’! It… Continue reading Best Nine of 2017

Christmas Thoughts

So, Christmas happened. It’s done, I’ve eaten way too much, there’s still enough cheese in my fridge to keep me going till next Christmas. Same goes for turkey, anyone know any good recipes? I am eating apple crumble while writing to you though, that’s fruit right? Apple is definitely fruit. I was spoilt, receiving an… Continue reading Christmas Thoughts

Shortbread Christmas Tree – How To

Don’t worry I’m not turning wannabe food and recipe blogger. I’m not apt enough for that, I prefer the eating of the food generally. I posted a photo on Instagram of this recent festive creation and got asked by a few people what the recipe was, so I thought perfect opportunity to share a little… Continue reading Shortbread Christmas Tree – How To

Tea Revv Advent – Day 6-11

I’m typing this recent blogmas advent update with a cat sitting on half the keyboard, please bare with me. Let’s hope I don’t need to type ‘plomk’ too often, as he gets a bit grouchy when I try to squeeze in between his paws. You can check out my previous, cat free, advent reviews here.… Continue reading Tea Revv Advent – Day 6-11

Christmas Balls

I missed it last year and I was determined not to let it pass me by this time. I mean it looked amazing and bizarre at the same time. I was intrigued and disgusted, curious and apprehensive. I’ve waited a whole year for it to return, just so I can say I had it, I… Continue reading Christmas Balls

That Festive Feeling

I’m not known for being the biggest fan of Christmas. I don’t hate it, but I’m not a super fan of the actual day it’s self. Or the greed and need for everything to be perfect. It’s all a bit of an anticlimax if you ask me. I’m not ungrateful, I love giving and receiving… Continue reading That Festive Feeling

Battle and a brew – Thirsty Meeples

I have to tell you about an amazing place I discovered in Oxford recently. I don’t know how I’ve not told you about it sooner really, but sometimes life stuff gets in the way. I’ve been a bit slack on the ol’ blog writing lately. I know I’ve had a few 'guests’ here and have… Continue reading Battle and a brew – Thirsty Meeples
