Longest week ever...

And not the greatest week either...

I was so busy with everything... Went to London in the beginning to the week to drop off the documents at the Embassy for a new passport. Stress.... But to be honest the lady I dealt with was lovely, well my name will be misspelled in the new passport (bloody auto translation) I went for sushi and met Natasha:) This was very nice!


Then it was work work work!!!!
We have no staff... or we do but they do not show for the shifts... well I do not really care I just want to have bodies to work.... I miss my Cardiff ladies...


To top everything we had to go to Emergency to have a new x-ray for Hubby's arm...It hasn't actually heal properly  but we have been told to chill for a week and not to lift anything really. Ice and keep it raised to take the swelling off...

And the day later one of out little rats passed away....
I do not think I would want more rats...


I hope she is in the rat haven...

Another very special day

It is Viera's birthday today!

She is one special young lady and the best manager I had a joy to work with... and who very quickly became a very close friend



I love you dear! Have a good one!
Wish I could be in Cardiff to drag you out for a cranberry juice... Spiked one!

After Dan left the pub...

So there is this pub in Cardiff on Cathedral road in Pontcanna... I used to tell guests in the hotel to go for food there. Our mate Dan was a head chef and everything was so amazing! So many beautiful meals there... Gastro pub at its best with an amazing Sunday roast... We even went there after we got hitched


But then Dan moved on.... and the food became not that good. I hope they have found someone to bring the magic into their kitchen, but we have been looking for a new Sunday roast place for a while now.
We went to many places in Cardiff to find a place... well that is if we had a Sunday off. One of the joys of working in hospitality industry. When you do eventually get a weekend off you do know what to do with your self... 

So after moving to Bath we had some time off... so following the advice of Sarah we went to Aqua.
If you are ever in Bath go to Aqua....I was so happy after leaving the place!



Food was great...
Attentive Staff....
We left happy and with full stomachs!

Glad however that Sunday roast doesn't happen very often in out household otherwise we would be very cuddly:)

And go to Aqua if you will have some time... 

P.S. Husband does think that I am strange for taking pictures of my food... But when it looks so good how can you not?!

well sun is out and I have been running...

After my horrible cold I started feeling like I have been putting fat on... Perhaps comfort eating has something to do with it. My love for garlic bread must die, or we should meet each other less frequently...
So I have decided to pay more attention to my body, eat less bad foods, more fruit and veg and drink a bit less wine! As much as I love my fermented grape juice, or fermented apple juice (cider) and a lovely juniper infused spirit... ... Sad!



My friend Sarah singed up for Race for Life this year, with my encouragement... but in the end I cannot actually participate in that one (soon to be reviled why). So yeah she never really run before, so we went for a run...
Here is Sarah's page to sponsor!


It was so much fun. I truly believe that this girl can go for miles!

So in last three days she probably run 10K give or take... that puts me to shame. I overdid it a bit in the gym and was a bit sore.. you know that feeling when you want to drink tea and not do anything. So when Sarah texted saying she just run 2.24K I was already putting my kit on...



I also find new inspiration for staying fit and on top of everything!

This super woman Kym-nonstop!

But there is always the fab Jillian and Bob


Must keep going... do not want to be flabby want to be fit again and get some rock hard muscles!


Also running is a great way to enjoy the sunshine we been having over here in Bath!

nothing gives you speed like a whip....

Book was good... but the amazing Drew Barrymore did one amazing film...


Whenever I am down or lonely or need a pick me up... its is on my screen.
I was so much in love with the idea of roller derby that my loving hubby got me beautiful quad roller skate for Christmas few years back... Skated once in them... this shitty British Weather!
Currently there are some changes are coming our way and I am looking into joining the team.... 
Love sport! love to roll!! 


Hell Yeah!!!
Also read the book... its very cute and real easy to read.... It is by Shawna Cross and the original name of the book is Derby Girl

Films for girls

Recently I have not been very well. Had this horrible cold and 5 days in still not quiet there yet, but I am better, not great but better. For 3 days I was nesting on the sofa watching films. A lot of them.... but one thing made me super happy was the Pitch Perfect. It is my new favorite film.... 


It's about girls being friends getting their shit together and stepping up and knowing when to chill da f&%k down....

And then I watched For Good Time, Call...
And oh my manolos I found new sex and the city...
And it is outrages! Funny! Sexy! Unexpected... Well I am in love! 


Watch it! Unless you are easily offended by sex talk, dildos etc.
I don't get easily offended... 
This film made me think about my old friends who I used to spend most of my time with in Switzerland. 
We used to go out together and then meet for coffee next morning to discuss the events of the night before... 
I miss this time sometimes, sometimes I wish I never did things I did but in the end these silly things we did made me who I am today.
I love you my girls... even if we do not talk very much anymore, even if we are in different counties. 
You are always in my heart
