    My cousin went to Rome – why I’m jealous

    A few months ago I found out my favourite cousin went to Rome. I’m going to tell you why I got jealous & what I plan to do to change it. It’s not all bad, honest! When I found out that my cousin (unnamed) went to Rome, I got excited and started sending her cool phases in Italian that I thought would be useful. I thought she would tell me all about the tourist attractions and where to or not go! Although she was polite when we spoke next she didn’t tell me anything about her travels… I started to get jealous. Why couldn’t I go instead? I’m the one…

    The Seasons: Summer, Spring, Fall & Winter.

    The Autumn traditionally falls over the months of September to November. It is the lead up to the Winter, which is normally over the Christmas & New Year period but the weather in the UK is unpredictable – sometimes it isn’t what you expect at all…Β  Sometimes we have sunny weather in Autumn and sometimes it rains or snows. You have to be on your guard all year round and keep up with the weather reports too. I personally love to look at the snow but have trouble getting around in that weather. My favourite two seasons are definitely the more open seasons that are neither too hot or cold.…

    My Dream Future (a day in the life)

    I have been thinking about my life and how it seems to be going well recently, however,Β don’t we all think of our perfect lifeΒ & what dreams we have for the future if you could change it… My perfect ideal day would go just like this… I wake up to my husband saying it is a weekend and we have the day to ourselves. We go downstairs to the smell of bacon and a breakfast being cooked. We sit at the table and eat our food with a glass of orange juice each, maybe apple juice instead. We look at the local paper and social media which shows what events are…

    My journey with food, & beyond.

    I have been musing about what to add on my blog and I thought why not Food & Drink? Let me take you on a journey as to why I love this topic so much… When I was a child I loved going out to places and loved to eat a lot. A favourite place I used to love in Cardiff Bay was a fish and chip restaurant centred next to Techniquest. It was a lovely place and it had some memories I will treasure forever of going there with my dearly beloved nan. Scroll on to 2000s, I was an anti-food snob and barely ate anything but ready meals and…

    Halloween 2018

    So it’s that time again where we all get dressed up and spooky. This is my opinion on Halloween. When I was a child I used to love the dressing up & Trick or Treating with family members. I remember one too many times I was dressed in a bin liner (I’m not a cheap inspoΒ honestly) as a witch, with the hat & broomstick! I loved it even though it didn’t cost much and I only visited a few houses. This whole routine went on for a good ten years and IΒ don’t remember if I even enjoyed it toward the end. I firmly believe that Halloween is for the children,…
