Signing up to AWW 2017

This year may be winding down as we are now in the last month of the year, but I am already excited about what 2017 is going to hold.  One thing that I intend to do again is to support The Australian Women Writers Challenge.  This great initiative will be entering its 6th year and I for one want to support it. Recently we moved house and finally...

Quack and Field picture books

I am a big fan of books and reading.  Recently we moved house and finally have been able to unpack some of our books that haven’t been seen and poured over since we packed them all up into boxes once we sold our house in Italy last year. There are times when I miss before bed story time that I shared with my children.  But the fact is they are now...

My Sunday Photo – Neapolitan pizza

Hello all.  It has been quite a while since I have participated in one of these posts.  So long that I thought it was time to do something about it. During the week I had a day off work because there was something I wanted to do and two ladies that I have been wanting to meet for a very long time.  After I had made my journey it was lunch time and...

Review–ReCover concealer

One thing you won’t find me ever admitting to, is putting two layers of foundation on my face on a school morning.  But this is part of a conversation that I overheard back in the first week of term of the new school year last month.  This mother was explaining to the barista about her busy household full of growing boys and the fact that she needed...

Aromistico coffee

I wasn’t a coffee drinker before I met my husband.  The beverage just didn’t have the same appeal as tea.  However since we have been together I have changed my mind.  I attribute this in part to living in Italy – that certainly helped. But you don’t need to go to a bar to have good coffee. I was given the opportunity to try some Italian coffee at...

Pataks for an easy Friday night dinner

It is Friday night and you don’t feel like cooking, so what options do you come up with. Sometimes we opt for a take-away – perhaps fish and chips, a Chinese or maybe Indian. These are certainly options that my family considers. I was presented with the opportunity to try a new product produced by Pataks.  There are 6 varieties, all of which come which...

Our first flotilla holiday in Greece

This holiday has been one that the Britalian had been wanting to happen for a very long time.  He also got prepared by buying a pilot book, not just for the Ionian sea, which was where we were headed, but for Greece in general.  When he first bought the book, I had a feeling that he wanted to plan more than one holiday. We decided to bite the bullet...

Review-Laura Hamilton’s Full Body Workout

This year I feel like I have been exercise challenged.  I have tried to keep up with at least 10,000 steps a day and I find that the best way to keep myself accountable is by wearing my Garmin device. But I’ve wanted to do more.  Alas though I haven’t pushed myself at all.  I have a yoga book which I got out and used for one morning.  Pitiful right…...

My Sunday Photo – Dovecote Garden

This weekend is Heritage Weekend.  It is an annual event that takes place over 4 days in September, apparently being England’s biggest festival of history and culture.   I was alerted to this local site by reading about it in the Seaford Scene, which is a magazine that highlights local events in the area.  I spotted Dovecote Garden and this open day. ...

Towner Art Gallery Eastbourne

You know when you mean to do something but you keep putting it off.  I try to go for a walk every day during my lunch hour and often I walk past the Towner Gallery.  I have often thought that I should go inside and see what is on.  The other day I saw mention of an exhibition that sounded interesting, that only has a few days left to run, so I decided...
