Happy Easter!

FullSizeRender 3

It doesn’t matter if you’re religious or not, Easter is always a nice little break to get together with family and friends or just to have some time off work. I think for me, this is the first Easter that I spend with only my other half and not any of our relatives or close ones. So it got me thinking what should we do? We weren’t really in the mood to travel anywhere so we just decided to spend the time we had off for Easter at home. Initially we said that we won’t go crazy about food and making any traditional dishes from home, but then, as I started thinking about this more and more I kind of craved them. And so I decided that why should we only have these deliciousness only when mama cooks it, when – not to blow my own horn here (clearly blowing my own horn here!!) – my mama’s recipes and my cooking go pretty awesome together.  Continue reading “Happy Easter!”

When in Worcester…

Bonjour, mes amis!

It’s been a while since my last blog post and I have to say I’ve missed writing – must take that as a good sign! I’ve been through a whirlwind of feelings, with a lot of stress but also excitement and happiness.

We’ve just had an Agent Conference at work, about two weeks ago – also, our first one! – and while so many things could have gone wrong, we pulled together as a team and managed to see it through gracefully and successfully. We have had an amazing feedback from our agents and a lot of things to learn from and change for the next one. However, I won’t be here for the next one as I’ve just got a new job! Oh, the excitement and the angst!

But that’s not what I’m going to write about today. Today, as the weather has gone dark and dreary again, I’m going to take you on a little imaginary trip around sunny Worcester, and share with you some of my favourite places, in case you ever want to visit.

The one with the birthdays

I can’t believe it’s already the middle of April! Time flies so fast when you’re having fun! April is a month full of my friends’ birthdays so there will be many reasons to celebrate and have fun. This past weekend has been the biggest of them all with the birthdays of two of my best ones from Uni. It’s been a great weekend, filled with fun, adventure, yummy food, drinks and lots of laughter and giggles!

We all went paintballing – it’s safe to say I was thrilled and excited as well as extremely scared and anxious when they first told me about this, having heard a lot of stories about bruised bodies and such. But then I thought to myself that I have to snap out of it and give it my best and it really was great fun! I have to say I went straight into combat mode after the first couple of games and I have enjoyed it more than I thought I would. Continue reading “The one with the birthdays”
