Jane Fonda Workout

We're experiencing a very cold snap here in Frankfurt at the moment. Whilst last week we had lovely 9C days, it's suddenly jumped to -10 with a windchill of -17. Just a little different! It does normally get cold in the winter, but in my nearly 9 years of living here, I've not experienced such… Continue reading Jane Fonda Workout

American Football

I looked through my list of new things last week and realised sadly that there's a lot of sports events still to tick off. Understandably, I've not been able to get to any for at least a year, but I've been diligently trying to tick them off by finding some live and online. During 2020… Continue reading American Football

Catan Dice Game

Up until last year, I was quite dismissive of board games. Like many, I grew up on a steady diet of Snakes and Ladders, Ludo and Monopoly until the siren's call of video games and The Sims lured me away. Sure, I flirted with the idea of playing more board games last year, and I… Continue reading Catan Dice Game

Tim Tams

I would definitely consider myself adventurous with food and love trying out the famous dishes and baked goods from countries all over the world. Last year I not only went to Japan, Korea, and the Middle-East with my kitchen adventures, but also Nigeria, Russia, and Finland. I like to think I'm culinary well-travelled, but one… Continue reading Tim Tams

Art History Course

Like most people, I'm getting a little weary about the endless lockdowns at the moment. I still miss the big picture things like family, friends, and travelling, but I'm really starting to miss the simpler things like spending the afternoon squirrelled away in a cinema or a museum too. Thankfully, a lot of museums have… Continue reading Art History Course

Melon Pan

This week I got back to playing around with my favourite thing in the kitchen – bread. Nothing gives me more pleasure than getting my hands stuck into some dough and seeing what deliciousness will come out. I've made no end of bread loves over the past few years, but I like experimenting with different… Continue reading Melon Pan

Cruffins

Posting about sweet, decadent treats isn't the usual January blog content, I know, but I'm always happy to bake new things, no matter what time of year it is. If you followed me last year, you'll likely know how much I valued the Puff the Bakery baking course I started last summer. I went from… Continue reading Cruffins

Yoga in the Forest

New year, new things... I'm not going to lie, it's been tough not doing new things every day. There have been many, many times where I've been wandering around my house, convinced that I should be doing something. I couldn't resist the lure of the new for long though, and I'm back, ready to dive… Continue reading Yoga in the Forest

Best of the Year

It's been a long year and I've just finished my challenge of doing something new every day. There's been some good, some bad, and some I never want to do again (here's looking at you, Rubik's cube) but I've had fun exploring new areas and discovering interesting things. I wanted to look back and sum… Continue reading Best of the Year

Day 357 – Darts Match

I struggled to find a new thing for today. I've been waiting on a few deliveries for big new things that would help me close the year with a bang, but due to well, everything, they've either been cancelled or not arrived. I wanted to find something bigger than the average new thing to fill… Continue reading Day 357 – Darts Match
