Well it has rained all day!!! It has been lovely. I may be too British for my own good, but there is something soothing about the sound of proper rain, putting on a big jumper and socks and feeling cozy.

No post yesterday as I was not feeling too great, not sure what it was, maybe just feeling down. Heyho! Much better today. I started the day with my morning walk and decided to take a different route. Mix it up a little bit. Back in the old days when I used to work, and … Continue reading Day 21: A walk through Chelsea

We went into Asda on a Saturday … Continue reading An alternative way to shop

It's fair to say that over my 30 something years I have eaten many an afternoon tea. I have enjoyed them around London, around the country and even overseas.
