Every month I set myself the challeng of trying 5 new things. They can be big things like visiting a country for the first time, or small things like trying a new app or a new type of food. Even so, to find 5 every month can be a bit of a challenge sometimes, and… Continue reading Favourite new things I tried in 2017
I hope you’re having a very Merry Christmas! We always alternate where we spend Christmas. This year we’re spending Christmas with P’s family in Scotland, and then we’ll go down to Leeds for New Year. Next year we’ll switch it around. Today we’ll be at P’s eldest sister’s home, where we’ll eat to much, probably… Continue reading Merry Christmas!
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
This month its been hard to find new things to try. October has kind of run away with me and I think in general, this part of the year is one I struggle with. I definitely don’t suffer from SAD but I do find myself getting more tired at this time of year as the… Continue reading New things I tried in October ’17
If you think things have been quiet on the blog lately, you’re right. Everything got super busy in the middle of September and then I had to take a short trip to Munich for Oktoberfest and I’m just now catching up. Yes, you read that right. Oktoberfest in Munich is indeed in September. I don’t… Continue reading Oktoberfest!
I am bad at attending shows at The Fringe. I can never seem to choose among the hundreds of things that are available – the listings seem endless – and I don’t have the time to read through reviews or do the research to make a good choice about what I’d like to see. Normally,… Continue reading Two shows at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival
This is turning out to be one Hell of a year for weddings. Only a couple of weeks ago we attended two weddings in one weekend and now, just last Friday we were at the reception for a third one. It’s wonderful to be able to help my friends celebrating their relationships. Plus, y’know, I… Continue reading R and D’s Wedding Reception
This weekend was one of the most fun, happiest and absolutely busiest weekend that I can remember having for a very, very long time. On Friday, P’s sister got married. On Saturday Rhys and Louise got married. On Sunday, I did extremely little. So, on Friday morning we got up, dressed up all fancy and… Continue reading A weekend of weddings
Wow, this post is late. Sorry, I guess it’s been kind of a busy few weeks. Anyway, way back on 8th June, it was my penultimate day of work as a postdoctoral researcher at Glasgow University. In my research group there, the Institute for Gravitational Research (or IGR) it’s kind of a tradition that when people… Continue reading Dinner at Balbir’s
Every month I do a quick round up of at least five of the new things I’ve been trying. I find it’s a fun way of looking back on what I’ve been getting up to and a good way to keep track of things. I’ll put links to previous months’ posts at the end of today’s… Continue reading New things I tried in February
