The countdown is over



We had a really busy weekend, filled with DIY & hospitals (unrelated, thankfully) – and a bit of well earned park time with friends too.

1.  All the gear…

2. A bit of tinkering…

3. Ta da! An amazing feat of engineering.

4. Get better soon N!!

5. Where?

6. Frank’s rooftop bar – delicious food from the grill –

7.  – and beautiful views across London!

8. Sunday park-time (with sun even!!).

9. And a spot of boules!

Tapas Tuesday.

A friend of mine introduced me to this little tapas place in Covent Garden – and it was fantastic!

I almost didn’t want to share it with you, but here is a little taster.

Gazpacho, quails egg and panchetta, fig and goats cheese.

2.5 days in Berlin


Walking shoes (the before shot).

Red carpet time.

Relaxing by the lake.

Urban art.

Bier Garten’s are all over and the best place for some down time…

…before the evening begins.

Underground art.

We went to Berghain and this is the only picture we have to prove it

(and that we were allowed to take).

This place has the scariest door policy (bouncer) you’ve ever seen.

All you have to do is act really disinterested and don’t say a word in the queue – but it’s worth the hype and probably the most interesting social psychology experiment I’ve ever experienced.

Leopard print U-bahn.

Fernsehturm – Berlin’s Needle.

The best way to get around the city (apart from by bicycle).

Stadtschloss, Charlottenburg.


With the weather looking a bit like this at the moment…

…there’s nothing like hanging out with some friends to brighten a Summer (monsoon) day.

I visited some friends (who have an amazingly calming acquarium) …

… for a morrocan themed dinner.

 Carrot & Orange and Fennel & Cucumber salads, soooo tasty!

And then you put it all together like this:

shredded lamb, flat bread, pomegranate, a dob of yoghurt and harissa (for the adventurous) delicious!

Thanks to the lovely chef for a great eve – looking forward to next time to try out the sous vide…


We’re off to Berlin (Super, ja!) this weekend – see you on the flipside!

Mr & Mrs…

As previously mentioned we were up in the Lake District for our good friends’ special day – it was such an amazingly beautiful day and we were so fortunate to share it with them – we wish them every happiness in the years to come.
