  • A few movies have been filmed in the idyllic village of Castle Combe. Can you name one?
.
It’s been really really cold the last few days. I have been out a few times but in all honesty, I rather be curled up hibernating until March. Bears got it right!!
.
Hope your Monday was/is great!

  • Today is worthy of a video. Don’t forget to turn your speaker on.
.
I had plans for today but the girls rather play in the snow — as seen in Stories. Oh well, snow like this doesn’t happen in England every year. The classic weather excuse 🙈😂
.
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it - Groucho Marx

Hope you made this weekend a good one! 😘

  • I didn’t realise Wednesday’s Christmas dinner was at an all you can eat steak place.
.
While I was browsing Facebook, a workout advert popped up. A 30-days challenge from Betty Rocker. It’s free and so I signed up.
.
You know how you would buy random stuff at the grocery store when you go shopping hungry? That’s how that signing up above was like.
.
Now at Christmas party numero deux. Tip for you young ones... don’t switch to a new job in December unless you love Christmas parties 😂😂
.
Oh, beautiful Rye. Looooooved that town! A must visit if you are in the area. Not far from London and easy to get to via 🚂
.
Laters!

  • Happy Sinterklaas Day!! I used to celebrate this but since I have my own family, I have not incorporated it into our Christmas tradition. More on my blog if you fancy a five minute read.
.
Despite what’s written on the building, this house was built in the 14th century. To the right of the building is the very picturesque Canterbury river, which I posted a few months back.
.
At the back of the house is a ducking stool. It was used to duck women, who talked back to their husbands too much, into the river.
.
Hmmm... I wonder if my husband would use this method back in the days? Now he can only say: Sass and 🙄. 🙈😂😂.
.
Hope your week is going well! Off to our first Christmas party this evening! Date night 😍❤️😊
.
Laters!

  • It’s not officially winter yet, right? So I can still post an autumn scene from our trip to Rye in October. But, isn’t it crazy that it’s December already?
.
We got a Christmas tree today and I think I am done shopping. I went to Cambridge yesterday — it was quite quiet — and finished off the list by the help of the internet. I think it’s my fastest Christmas shopping ever! I can’t recall ever finishing in 24hrs 😜
.
What are you asking Santa this year? Me, a beginner calligraphy set. I want to learn something new.

  • The type of shop that one can bump into on Pulteney Bridge, Bath. Isn’t this floral shop so so stunning?
.
It’s so cold today! It even snowed ❄️ for five seconds too!
.
Question... what easy and in person good deeds do you do or have done? I want to get inspired! Since I was little I’d try to do something small but to me, felt like a big impact. Our family used to cook for those who needs a warm meal once a month, I used to be a volunteer maths tutor when I was in school, I helped work gather gifts for an orphanage, etc.
.
This weekend we want to make doggie treats for the homeless dogs. It’s what the girlies want to do. Hopefully there is no rule in Cambridge preventing us from handing them out.
.
Hope you all have a fab day! I will be digging out the Christmas decor 🎄after posting this. Maybe during the decorating and after I can feel more in the spirit. Right now though, not at all Christmassy! Quite odd since Christmas is my favourite holiday!! Laters!
  • The street of Rye. That 🐟 and 🍟 shop is very good, btw!!
.
Why are you here on Instagram? Me, to get inspiration on new places to visit and engage with folks from all parts of the world who have similar interest and love as I do. Without Instagram, I might have missed visiting Rye.
.
We’ve had a lovely long weekend. Hubby took a few days off, a treat after being away for two weeks, Emma was off Friday, we had a great Thanksgiving meal (plus lots of leftovers), and I got to hang out with some awesome ladies in London @theconnaught. The new high tea menu there was 👌 I couldn’t have asked for a better last few days!!
.
Hope your week is going well!
  • From our home to yours, happy Thanksgiving day my American friends!!
.
For all of you, may you have many many things to be grateful for!
.
I wish this was our cosy lounge but it’s not. Beatrix Potter has great taste in slow country living!
  • Published my blog post on how Instagram helped me heal from depression. Make sure you have a hot/cold drink before reading, it’s about a 12min read 🙈 Link in bio.
.
The beautiful alleyway of Frome. All sorts of independent shops line Cheap Street.
.
Cheap originated from the old English word “ceap” which meant “bargaining/trade”. Then people would say “good ceap” for “good bargain”. In the 15th century, cheap came about and it meant what it means today, inexpensive. The stream of water in the middle is called a leet, which is a medieval water system.
.
Doing the exciting job of balancing the accounts. I don’t mind a bit of finance work but a lot, especially taxes, give me a special anxiety. I could feel my shoulders tighten and stomach turning as I worked. Every year, after submitting our taxes, I get ansy. In case I get audited. Hubby said he’ll make sure the kids get fed if I go to prison 😂😂😂
.
Hope your day’s lovely!
