Molicero, Croydon

Tea and cake is pretty much always a winner in my books. It is even more of a winner when the cafe is a quiet place, the prices are decent, the portions are generous and the staff have a smile on their face. That in short is why I love Molicero a Portuguese cafe on […]

Spinach And Kale Mac ‘n’ Cheese

Looking at my images of this mac ‘n’ cheese I realise I am an incredibly messy cook that managed to splatter stuff everywhere and cause spinach leaves to go rogue. Perhaps I can also blame it on the phone camera, something I am hoping to eliminate from my endless blog issues sooner rather than later, […]

The Day I Went To Croydon Business Awards 2017

It blows my mind that a year and a bit ago I was stepping back into the workplace, my first proper full time role really, after suffering from a serious deep battle with depression. I didn’t really know what to expect and if nothing else hoped it would provide some steps to talking to people […]

Rustico, Wakefield

It was a surprisingly cold evening last Wednesday as I headed from my mum’s place where I was staying on the bus to Wakefield. Being so used to London with the pollution and numerous high-rise buildings trapping the heat in it came to a shock to the system as I stopped at a quiet bus […]

Bulmers Crushed Red Berries and Lime

Just a couple of days ago I was chatting about how I do not drink very much and with that part of me expected the other bottle of cider to sit in the fridge for a couple of weeks or until my partner got bored and decided to drink it himself. But after a couple of stressful […]

Bulmers Wild Blueberry And Lime

It is very rare that alcohol is something that I drink anymore and when I do I want freshness, something fruity and smooth without bitterness or really heavy ending. But on Friday night I asked my partner to get some cider for the evening and the weekend. In fact I asked for it to be […]

How I Am Productive During Time Off

After spending so long having every single of the week to myself it has taken a bit of time to get into a routine of getting up and getting ready to head to work. But the thing I have struggled with more is making sure I spend my time off being productive and remembering that […]

Squinzano Rocca Del Mori 2008

The last bottle of wine I shared on my blog, in an empties post, was an absolute cracker of a red wine from a friend so when they got me this for my birthday I had really high hopes it would turn out to be just as fantastic. This time they got a bottle of wine from an […]

Olympic Opening Ceremony

The day that signals the start of competition is just around the corner for many athletes has finally arrived. Opening ceremonies constantly set out to be memorable and impressive for those that are participating, in attendance and tuning in through some form of media. Some athletes, such as the footballers, will be unable to attend […]

Olympics Day 0: Archers Get Aiming Before Opening Ceremony

*As always a short bullet point summary of the days action, things to consider and look out for as well as my thoughts will be at the bottom of this post if you do not have the time to read through a summary of each event.* The first official day of the Olympics is here […]
