Lucky & Ameba play Hyde and seek

After spending around 2 hours getting bank accounts we decided to get a little fresh air and fun. First though we went to Primark - WOW! Don't know if I'd want to go there on the weekend - and that's saying something!
Anyway, we walked down Park Lane, oogling the Aston Martins and other beautiful vehicles conveniently parked throughout the area so that we could enjoy them!

View of the park from where we had a drink.

One of the lovely old buildings in Kensington.

Walking through the gates one of the first things we saw was this field filled with flowers (not sure what they are - Mom, any clues?)

The route we took (well part of it)

Can you spot what doesn't belong?

Just a little bit of picturesque.

Although not very visible, that squirel was also playing the game - with its nut! In the back ground some tulips.

Lush and green - luckily when were were in the park the rain was also playing hyde & seek - it was our turn to count...

Where are we - not on this awesome path!

Hang on - is that Meebs (looking rather shmodelish) with... wait for it... our first Primark bag!

Meebs relaxes by the fountain...

so does Lucky


Meebs & Marble Arch


We ended up walking from Oxford Street to Kensington (which is quite far!) and then through Hyde Park, back up to Marble Arch (and Oxford Street). Tomorrow we'll be heading down to Wimbledon and the south of the river...

We love you Chewy

Earlier this week we had to make the hardest decision anyone with a pet will ever have to make. You have to be totally selfless, even though you’re fully aware of the devastating consequences. I’m typing this with tears streaming down my checks and my nose running. Over the last few weeks Chewy had slowed down, he wasn’t his beansy self, but we knew this might happen and just took everything slower. On Tuesday we went for our walks, he ate all his food and got as many treats as he could. On Tuesday night, he climbed into our bed. His breathing was heavy, the lymph glands in neck had hugely swollen and he was struggling to breathe. He was disorientated and wouldn’t eat or drink. He kept wanting to go outside, but wasn’t able to stand. I slept next to him on the floor, in the other bedroom and came downstairs when wanted to. Eventually at about 5am we called the vet. She confirmed our worst fears. We booked an appointment for 7:45 that morning, we had a little time to say g

How To Buy A House vs Online Dating

Buying a house is like online dating. I say that having had experience of both. Before having met The Incredible Davey (he requested a superhero pseudonym, we shall refer to him as TID henceforth) I discovered that in order to be an effective online dater, you need to date like a man... by having at least three men who you're going on dates with at a time (not all together). It means that if one isn't as responsive as you'd like or you decide you don't like another, there are still two more to keep you amused. And the same applies when looking for houses! The similarities in the two experiences are uncanny: 1. You do both online. 2. It's brutal. 3. You need to be prepared to have your heart broken. 4. It takes hours of trawling to find one that you might like. 5. The photo's are often misleading. 6. You can 'try before you buy' but just the tip. You don't really know what's under the 'bonnet' until you're entrenched in the rel

The rise of the herb balls

For a while now I've been wanting to get back into the garden! I miss spending hours pottering about, languidly watering plants and admiring them and their growth spurts. This desire has been somewhat stilted by living on the first floor and not having my own garden. We do, however, have a tiny bit of balcony space outside the back door. And after watching everyone else's flower boxes flourish throughout the summer months, I thought that as it's now autumn it would be a great time to get planting! To be honest I can't remember exactly how you're supposed to assemble the balls. I can't even remember the name, so after a brief and unsurprisingly unsuccessful effort on The Google I re-hydrated the moss and used a combination of herb-plugs, moss and potting soil... Taa-daa! Having managed a few layers I opted for a centre-piece instead of a full ball, featuring fresh basil, parsley, chives, thyme and rosemary! Even the strawberries tha
