    8 great places to eat in Wellington

    I lived in Wellington for six months and left in March, excited for the travels ahead while planning to upload this post about my Wellington dining experiences. Then, a pesky little pandemic happened, no biggie, so I decided to postpone it as it’s rather like rubbing salt into the wound – look at all these […]

  • Mexico

    Mexico

    Much like when I walked out of my hotel on that first morning in Mexico City, I don’t really know where to start. That day, I took a confident right turn then did a 180 after two blocks, hurrying back past the hotel eyes averted as though this was what I intended to do. This […]

    8 great places to eat in Manchester

    Not everyone is familiar with Manchester. Dear reader, I am your guide so please pull up a chair. Manchester has been my home for the last eight years; we have a fickle relationship where I determinedly leave for pastures elsewhere and then she beckons her finger like a beguiling temptress and I come crawling back. […]

  • London calling

    London calling

    In April I moved back to Manchester. Well-accustomed to the drizzle and grey skies this city knows so well, I was apprehensive at first. Four months, dazzling sunshine and a heat-wave later, I can safely say this move was a success. Thanks to a pretty great flatmate, a job I love, many long-awaited catch ups […]

  • A walk in the sun

    A walk in the sun

    A long-lasting impulse of mine, which may be shared by you too, dear reader, is to spend a bank holiday enjoying a hearty walk – inhaling fresh air, soaking up much needed vitamin D and topping up my incredible tan (think Edward Cullen) – before rewarding myself with a slap-up pub lunch because all that […]

    8 great places to eat in London

    Everyone knows London. It is vast and smoggy, teeming with people. It’s home to the Queen, the Houses of Parliament and red double-decker buses. The underground in rush hour is like a well-oiled machine at full speed – step out of the lines of militant commuters and you will endure violent cussing, with you pressed […]

  • A birthday feast

    A birthday feast

    Eating is a necessity in life. Humans must eat in order to live. However, there are some humans who live in order to eat. I would count myself in that later category. This has always been clear to me, usually thanks to the disappointment I feel when I finish my dinner, but never as obvious […]

  • A tale of two birthday cakes

    A tale of two birthday cakes

    It was Calum’s birthday (or as he liked to remind me, his ‘special day’). Presents, cards, birthday activities were incidental; my focus was, of course, his cake. Last year I made a large Victoria sponge with white fondant icing, bursting with jam and cream, and neatly decorated with Smarties. We polished off a couple of […]

  • Spring clean

    Spring clean

    Spring is here and along with it steady downpours, heavy clouds which drift lethargically carrying their immense weight across the sky, beautiful sunsets, and the ongoing roar of cars around and around the roundabout (christened ‘The Roundabout of Death’) on which I live. In a hotblooded display of manliness Calum ripped down the bent and dusty metal […]

  • Bread and cake

    Bread and cake

    I love these kind of days. The great bowl of sky is bright peacock blue and clear all the way across from one sky scrapper to the other. Only thin white streaks scud across as planes drift soundlessly from one destination to another. It is warm, not uncanny for this time of year but maybe […]
