Swimming with Sharks on The Great Barrier Reef

January 18, 2019

The Sea, Once it Casts its Spell, Hold you in its Net of Wonders Forever I have always had a thing for the sea. As a child on holiday, or day trips to the seaside, I would swim out into the ocean with my Dad and brother, loving the feeling of being out of my depth, and that there was an underwater world below me.…

Where to Stay, Eat & Drink On A Mini Break in Bath

January 14, 2019

When Nik and I started our “Discovering England” quest in 2016, Bath was very much on our list of cities that we wanted to visit, (you can see posts from this series here, Exploring Brtiain). We had yet to get there, (as life had decided on other plans for us), so when I was toying with what to get Nik for Christmas, a mini break…

A Vegan Afternoon Tea – Oxo Tower London

January 6, 2019

If you know anything about me, you would know that the words Kerry and afternoon tea are linked by a long history. We have a long and fulfilling relationship.

Setting Goals for 2019

December 27, 2018

My last post of 2018. How crazy is it that we are in the last throws of the year. To be a 101 year old woman about it, where does the time go! This is not a new years resolution post. I don’t set New Years resolutions as in truth, I usually fail on them by the 5th! Instead what I do is set some…

Reflecting on the Year – Roses and Thorns 2018

December 21, 2018

So here we are. Moving along the last furlong of 2018. We are galloping towards the close, and like many of us this time of year, I start reflecting. I find myself suddenly caught by a memory from somewhere within the last year, that, depending on the memory,  brings a little smile, a swell of my heart, or, a flutter of panic. I like it…

A Fashionable Afternoon Tea – Pret A Portea at The Berkeley

December 19, 2018

I think for those of you that know me, the words afternoon tea and Kerry go together like egg and chips, beans on toast, Brad and Jen (ok that last one is just my wish, I have never quite got over the golden couple splitting) I just blinking well love getting a little dressed up, and going to a beautiful venue to eat posh sandwhiches…
