The Holiday Blues

I have been to Egypt many years ago but being back there again a week ago has broaden my mind. I loved it much more than the first round. This time I traveled to Cairo and spent 3 nights on the amazing Sudan Steam Ship from Aswan to Luxor. I spent 1 night at the beautiful Old Winter Palace Hotel. I have seen so much of Egypt in five days but wanting more. I realize now what the saying of ‘holiday blues’ is. I’ve been on many holidays but this is the very first holiday I am feeling the ‘blues’. Better still, I have all my photos to look back on and I will return again.


Time To Cook


Time To Cook

I was studying Art in school for A’ level and this piece was a final acrylic painting on paper. So much fun and memories in class, it was always very therapeutic painting. I am very happy to have sold this special piece recently. I am sure it is going to a better home than just sitting in my folder tucked away.

Before and After

Finally got a chance to disposed of all the unwanted weeds. Also, I managed to go to Homebase and got 4 bags of barks and 3 more plants. Look at the after picture! Isn’t it great? Very elated to be able to complete this, hopefully I get to do the other part of the garden soon. In the meantime I’m going to enjoy that lovely part of the garden. Have a lovely week, folks. 

Tulips and Lemon Tree


Tulips and Lemon Tree

Last year I bought  a pack of tulips form Amsterdam home and potted some in the pot and most of them out in the front garden. Look how they are now, I was amazed they grew so well considering the street cats kept on digging them up and I thought they destroyed them. The lemon tree is my sister’s she grew it from the actual pip, it’s looking great!
