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
Before I get started… Today there is a General Election in the UK. Please, if you are in the UK and registered to vote, do it! Even if you hate all the parties and don’t think it will make any difference, a spoiled ballot sends more of a message than simply not turning up. I… Continue reading Time off
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
Back in 2015, I was midway through planning a holiday to Croatia, when a lot of fuss with Scottish Power finally got resolved and we found ourselves with a bit of a windfall. As a result, we decided to visit Curacao in the Carribean instead. However, I really did want to go to Croatia one… Continue reading A week in Croatia – part 1: arrival at Lopud and The Lafodia
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!
Last month I tried writing a round up for the first time, having stolen the idea from Gordon and Siobhan. It worked, I liked writing it, and I think it fits nicely with my Trying New Things posts, so I’m doing it again this month. Without any further ado, here’s my April round up: Financial… Continue reading April round up
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
That’s it! It’s over! The year we’ll probably all remember as being one of the actual worst is finally over. Bring on 2017! So I hope everyone had a fantastic New Year’s Eve and that no one is suffering from too much of a sore head. Thanks to some incredibly poor planning, there was an… Continue reading Happy New Year!
