Back to reality 

It’s raining, it’s pouring, the old man is snoring, he went to bed and bumped his head and couldn’t get up in the morning. It’s certainly pouring with rain here and I wish I was in bed snoring.  After spending the most fabulous weekend back in sunny England for a best friend’s wedding, I’m feeling…

Brunch in Brussels No.4

Good Morning, I am so thrilled to share the details of this fabulous cafe with you – especially because it is open on a Sunday, which is very rare in Brussels. Holy Bagels I walked passed Holy Bagels a few times and the name alone, was enough to entice me. It did not take much…

His sweet tooth

As you may know from my previous blog posts, I gave up chocolate for six months as part of my New Years Resolutions/for a stupid and yet competitive bet with my boyfriend. I have done very well indeed. Chocolate has not touched my lips. Apart from deserts containing chocolate because that was one of the…

My Jacks

When I joined my new firm, I was privileged to be invited to join “the breakfast club” a long standing tradition amongst some of the associates and interns. We get together every Friday morning, for twenty or so minutes, and someone brings the food. Usually, people just bring a selection of scrumptious pastries, however, some bring…

Brunch in Brussels No.3

Probably the most blogged about restaurant in Brussels… La Fabrique  Each Saturday and Sunday, from 10.30am to 3.30pm, this restaurant offers an all-you-can-eat style buffet brunch. I visited a few weeks ago, with James and our American friends – who were equally as thrilled as I, to find a decent iced coffee in Brussels. The…

a little boost

Last week, I had to work from home as I unfortunately had a virus that was possibly contagious, hence my lack of blog posts. Even though I was working from home, I was under strict instructions to rest and relax. I had been suffering with a pain for over a week before I finally succumbed…

NACH-YO-CHEESE

What cheese is not yours? NACH-YO-CHEESE It is possible, anywhere, even in paradise, to find something to complain about – even if you do not really mean it. Even though life here in Brussels is great and I am very happy, I found my complaint – my moan about Brussels. What this city is missing…

Proper grown up stuff

I never recall the fuse of anything ever being blown or ever having to contemplate replacing a fuse in my entire life. I have lived in Brussels for almost four months and I’ve blown two. The first went in my make-up lamp and now, my hairdryer. It’s like the fuse gods want me to go…

Bank Holiday Blues

Bank Holiday on a Thursday. It’s bizarre but very welcome. With a mid-week day to ourselves, James and I decided to explore the streets and natural beauty of Chatelain. The beautiful weather offered me the opportunity to wear my new summer purchases from Zara. I only bought my jeans in Zara last week but I cannot…

If Leicester City can win, then anything is possible

I really did not think I would make a football reference in a blog let alone a blog title but here we are, after four months of living with James. Celebration No.1 – Happy four month anniversary to Brussels & I Celebration No.2 – James & I have not killed one another Celebration No.3 –…
