Dinner at Tredwells – Restaurant Review

Dinner at Tredwells – Restaurant Review

For the longest of time I’ve been meaning to have dinner at Tredwells – it’s been languishing for too long at the top of my London restaurant ‘to try’ list (which is as long as the Thames – but more neatly sectioned than the relative hodge podge of London bridge placement.)  Sorry, that was quite a laboured metaphor. Back to dinner. The Work Wife and I were both celebrating 3 successful years of self employment,… View Post

Life as an Expat During a Global Pandemic

No-one really ever expected this would happen. (I don’t really know why I wanted to write this post about life as an expat during a global pandemic, but this is my online journal and sometimes we just have to have a heart to page occasionally.)

Since it opened The Laundry, Brixton has been right at the top of my ‘to visit’ list, so much so, that it’s the first place that I wanted to go when lockdown began to ease. The scene was perfect – sun out, terrace… View Post

Luxurious London Lamingtons | Radio Lamington

Asking an antipodean to describe a lamington is like asking a pre-coffee person to describe a dream. It’s childhood weekends in the sunshine, filled with laughter and your mum snatching a second one out of your hand. It’s spending time with your aunts & grandma on sleepy winter mornings all cosied up with tea. It’s popping to the local bakery with your Dad, on the hunt for a pie and something sweet to get you… View Post
