A little announcement

October was indeed a good month. It was crazy stressful and busy but utterly rewarding because on the 22nd October 2016 we finally adopted a dog. We have been wanting a dog for a long time, but the timing never really worked out. It has been really frustrating. We have been visiting a local Tierheim since March … Continue reading A little announcement

Hello again

It's been a while. I've purposely neglected my blog to deal with, well, my grief. The last year has been a particularly tough one. The kicks just kept on coming and it wasn't until September that I really, truly, felt better, or like myself again anyway. I've sat down and written loads of posts that will remain … Continue reading Hello again

One week on…

I posted this picture on Thursday, I never imagined that I would wake up to a country on the path to becoming separated from the EU. https://www.instagram.com/p/BHAPJn8gonv/?taken-by=bierandcrumpets&hl=en I don't usually call my husband a liar as soon as I wake up, I don't usually exchange expletives via text with my parents, I'm not often completely … Continue reading One week on…

The hosts of the night explained Eurovision in an utterly adorable way in semi final 2, someone has been watching 'The Producers', it's definitely worth a … Continue reading My Eurovision Favourites 2016

What I love about Eurovision

Unless you follow me on twitter you haven't been bombarded with my little obsession this year yet, but now the semis are over and done with and I have a few minutes spare I wanted to explain myself. If you've never heard of Eurovision, you might want to go here first and maybe here to get … Continue reading What I love about Eurovision

Tea Tuesday

We meet again. This is the post that shares a little bit of everything, a catch up, a progress report and plans for the future. And all written in the time it takes to drink a cup of tea. Today my chosen tea is a seasonal speciality, Japanese cherry blossom. Whilst I'm not mad keen on artificial … Continue reading Tea Tuesday

Loves lately #3

New year, new loves. Hibernation and a nasty stomach bug have meant I haven't been out and about as much this year, now out I'm planning on seeing everything. Media The wonderful wonderful Tracey Ullman is back on the BBC, she has some utterly fabulous characters including Angela Merkel and Dame Judi Dench in her … Continue reading Loves lately #3

Pancakes and krapfen

It's Faschingsdienstag already! The year is racing past so fast, Easter will be here in the blink of an eye. This year I've avoided the traditional Fastnacht parade (possibly still scarred from last year) in Baden-Württemberg and haven't even made it to a Fasching parade in Franconia. Blame the crappy weather, the vomiting virus or that general … Continue reading Pancakes and krapfen
