• Castles of Transilvania

    Car rentals are so readily available these days that they offer a great excuse for dashing off to places you’ve often dreamt of visiting, without having to worry about the often Byzantine public transport systems of some destinations, especially those of Eastern Europe. Romania is a case in point. Still recovering from the ravages of Ceausescu, whose taste for concrete would have turned the whole country into a giant Southbank Centre given long enough, Romania is rediscovering its fascinating heritage and starting to draw in the tourists. Anyone with a taste for medieval fairytale castles and a passing interest in vampires will have a field day here, and other perhaps less…

  • P&O Ferries,

    Lovely Sunday with P&O Ferries

    Thanks to my lovely friend Claire that posts at A boy with Asperger’s I was very lucky to be invited to shop on one of the fantastic ferries from P&O Ferries. The travel on board of the ferry was free which left more money for Christmas shopping! Claire and I departed to Dover port very early morning on Sunday. It was a very fun journey on board of National Express coach. So what two ladies will do for 3 hours on a coach? Well we chat all the way to Dover and if that wasn’t enough when we got to Dover-quite early I will say-we chat some more over a…

  • I want to see Santa!

    When I was a child one of our neighbours used to get dressed as Santa and come over on the 24th Of December Christmas Eve with presents for my sister and I. Today my hubby, boogie and I live in London and there’s no neighbour to return the favour to my parents. But here there are places we can take boogie to meet Santa! She did meet Santa last year at nursery but this was a daddy Santa and not a very good Santa either! Boogie was quite young as well. I still wonder if we should lie her about the existence of Santa or not!?! But while we are…

  • Thomas the Tank Engine and Camping

    My husband I and really enjoy camping! Before we had our lovely daughter we use to go camping quite often but since she was born we avoided camping until this year when she turn 2 years old. We were quite scared to how she will react to the joys of camping like sleeping in a tent or being outside for 24 hours. The first time we went camping she was so tired that as soon as i lay her down on our blow up bed she fell asleep instantly! But in this post i would like to talk more about our second experience camping in the EcoCamp – Sustainability Centre…

  • Garsons Farm – PYO & Family Fun

    I have something really nice to share with you. On saturday we went to PYO Farm! Yes i didn’t think that something like this exist in UK! It was so lovely! Boogie absolutely loved it. I recommend everyone with kids to go. My daughter loved walking through the trees and picking fruits and put them to her basket. She was so funny! We were not supposed to eat the fruits but really how can i stop my child. She was ravashing the rasberries and by the time we went to pay she was covered in juices! So for everybody that doesn’t know and for my friends around the globe a…
