One lovely blog award

A few days ago I received a nomination from fellow Brit Abroad, Bitchin’ the the Kitchen, for the previously unknown-to-me ‘One Lovely Blog Award’. I feel very privileged to have been one of the chosen ones on this occasion, as she has a very street-wise blog, and I would be the first to admit that I have always been somewhat lacking in the ‘coolness’ department. She writes … Continue reading One lovely blog award

Three days, three quotes challenge: Day Three

Today is the final day of the challenge. I was nominated by The Irish Procrastinator, whose poetry and musings are highly entertaining (so if you haven’t already done so, now would be the perfect time to pay her a little visit). The Rulebook: 1. Thank the person who nominated you. 2. Post a quote for three consecutive days (1 quote for each day). 3. Nominate … Continue reading Three days, three quotes challenge: Day Three

I only hope I can live up to her recommendation – she truly is the Queen of the Quote. The real challenge, of course, is restricting myself to just three quotes, which will hopefully pique the interest of the WordPress literary critics, and I find myself remembering … Continue reading Three days, three quotes challenge: Day One

Gourdon Bennett! C’est quoi ça?

Do you have a lawn that you hate cutting? Half a garden that you’d rather not access? A partner whom you trust enough not to sneak out at night and perform a mass plant exorcism? Neighbouring children that you’d like to scare by making your home imitate the set for a horror film? A penchant for analysing the progress of mould? A passion for planning … Continue reading Gourdon Bennett! C’est quoi ça?

Psycho killer, qu’est-ce que c’est?….Run, run, run, run, run, run, run away!

It has recently occurred to me that I have unwittingly developed a bordering-on-unhealthy obsession with James Norton (talented actor and eye candy). I realised that, on average, I think about him once every two days, and then very intensely. Sometimes the bounder even invades my dreams. If this meant that I simply turn into a drooling heap of female desire every time he appears in … Continue reading Psycho killer, qu’est-ce que c’est?….Run, run, run, run, run, run, run away!
