I think nearly everyone of us has already tasted Alexander’s scones: they are fluffy, look great and (mostly) taste delicious. Today it was my choice to have a try at baking scones – I have to admit that all other scones I brought to work in the past were prepared under Alexander’s charge. The result … More Culinary world novelty
This is not a post about London or any cultural event. This is a post about one thing I’ve never thought that this would be one of my biggest learnings during the last months. When we decided to move to London we obviously knew that we will be more or less alone. Not lonely because … More Something to be really grateful
This is the look of my beloved husband after booking our summer holidays. Guess where we want to “travel“! Germany? Not this time! USA? No, of course! Teneriffa? Never again! Lake District? Absolutely yes! Since we had/have a lot of change this year we also decided to book a flat we already know: We don’t … More Pure happiness
Does anybody remember the story of my 30th Birthday which we spend in London? At about half past 4 in the morning of my birthday night the fire alarm turned on. It was a very cold night and took some minutes to grab all our important things (shoes, winter jacket, trousers, socks, scarf, money, mobile … More Fire!!! Or not?
As some of you perhaps know I have a strange fascination for scientific and odd creatures (no, this doesn’t include Alexander – they are dead mostly). Therefore I took my chance tonight and went to the late exhibition of the Natural History Museum and booked a ticket for the ‘behind the scenes’-tour. We already did this tour … More A true love story
The days we’ve waited for so long had eventually come: The fifth season! On Wednesday before ‘Weiberfastnacht’ we took a plane to Cologne and were picked up at the airport by Andrea and Michael, which were so kind and generous to host us for the next six days and nights. But this wasn’t just hostig … More Halleluja, halleluhuja, haaaalleeeluuujaaa!
As you probably know we received the message that Alexander will be employed with PwC in London at our wedding in September. Therefore we decided on our honeymoon which we spent in the lovely Lake District (yes, again!) to become members of the National Trust, an organisation which takes care of the preservation of historic … More A nice day out
There are certainly some places in London which can be fascinating as well as cause nausea like the chamber of horrors at Madame Tussauds for example. But you don’t need to pay one single penny for this strange combination of feelings if you visit the Grant Museum of Zoology. Since I had some hours left … More Fascination and nausea
They get very happy when they recognize that the ‘Sleeping Beauty’-ballet at the Royal Opera House which they booked in January takes place on February 14th coincidentally. They send each other an electronic invitation via e-mail because they don’t want to miss the day. They agree a convenient meeting time 1,5 hours before the event. … More When the Kunkels have a Valentine’s date
Nearly every Thursday evening we look at each other and ask ourselves: “Tomorrow is Friday evening. What shall we do?” Actually it’s an English unwritten rule that you should go out and have some or more drinks on Friday (if not Thursday AND Friday AND Saturday). I assume our consumption of alcohol will have been tripled … More If you don’t want to have a drink on Friday evening
