It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Things are starting to get pretty festive in the Becky and P Falkirk HQ. The tree is up (it went up on the 2nd of December – it would have gone up on the first but I got home so late). My mother sent me a Hotel… Continue reading Christmas plans
I love a beach holiday. I’m quite happy sitting on the beach with a book and a cocktail and doing not very much of anything. This kind of holiday is about rest and relaxation, it doesn’t demand anything of you. Even so, a week of doing nothing can get old quick, and when you’re somewhere… Continue reading A week in Croatia – part 3: doing the tourist thing
For the past couple of months, I’ve been writing monthly roundups, having stolen the idea from Gordon and Siobhan. So far, I like the idea. It’s a bit like a status report and I do love any opportunity to monitor… well… anything, really. So, without any further ado, here’s my May round up: Financial status: Not bad, given… Continue reading May roundup
As usual, this month I’ve been going out of my way to try new things. It’s a habit I strongly recommend and I always enjoy looking back at the end of the month to see what I’ve been able to try. This month I’ve tried: 1. Visiting Croatia! We spent a week on… Continue reading New things I tried in May
I’m off on a week long holiday! Sorry that the blog will go quiet until I get back but P has threatened to disown me if I take my laptop which, I suppose, is fair enough. So I’ll just be forced to enjoy sitting on the beach, drinking cocktails and being a tourist. Cheers!… Continue reading Holiday!
This year I’m very excited by a couple of major weddings of wonderful people. The most excellent Rhys and Louise will be tying the knot in July, as will one of P’s sisters and her partner. I believe one of P’s cousins is also getting married later in the year. So I’m going to need… Continue reading Hen do at Loch Lomond
Happy Easter my lovelies! I hope that your Easter is filled with lots of delicious chocolate, time spent with your favourite people and cute fluffy bunnies. I will be on the Isle of Arran, on account of a last minute decision to Go Somewhere. P and I realised we both had a long… Continue reading Happy Easter!
Until recently I had never heard of La Chandeleur and honestly, I think I’ve been missing out. I am all about holidays, especially holidays that encourage the eating of pancakes. Who isn’t? So when my friend L invited me along to her Chandeleur party at the beginning of February and helpfully explained that we would… Continue reading Celebrating La Chandeleur
This is part of the series of trying new things. Every month I challenge myself to try new things, however big or small those things may be. Sometimes it’ll just be a TV show or a recipe, sometimes it’ll be an event or an activity. Anything could happen. Then, I list five things I tried… Continue reading New things I tried in November
I hope you’re all having a wonderful Easter Sunday. I will be spending it at P’s family home, where I will be feeding chocolate eggs to his nieces and nephews and trying to avoid having chocolate smeared into my skirt. At least it’s washable. Have a fantastic day!
