Sun-dried tomato pesto twirls, current addictions, WTSIM and more

September 17, 2008

Do you ever get the feeling your mouth is developing the nasty habit of writing out cheques that your body can't cash? Or at least, that there aren't enough hours in a day to cash? That's where I am right now. My head is fizzing with ideas and plans and schemes, but when I get […]

Forty things and six things – and loads of visitors!

July 31, 2008

I’m back – with the Expat Meme

August 30, 2007

The fact that I have come back from my holiday with the best tan I’ve had all summer seem to me to be an indication of the dismal summer we’ve been having in England.  I mean… long, languid days; mosquito sprays; sundresses; and sultry, humid nights aren’t the first things that spring to mind when […]
