This week of the year is always the oddest for me. What to do with yourself. The gym opens tomorrow (thank goodness) and I can’t be the only one with an excess of Yorkshire Pudding to burn off?! How was the big day for you guys? Did dinner turn out OK? Did Father Christmas bring… Read More The weird week!
Well the music festival is all done for another year! I didn’t take a proper camera this year, so apologies for the phone pictures! Even though we weren’t as hyped up about it as last year, we still had so much fun. Numerous friends over for the weekend and some staying over to celebrate National… Read More #GMF2016
So last week I got a very interesting email. Would I like to come in and have lunch aboard the Sunborn at La Sala Restaurant? Hmmm let me think… Where do I sign up? 😀 Now normally when I write a review for somewhere, I have been in on the down low and I feel… Read More La Sala Restaurant, Sunborn Yacht – Gibraltar

This weekend was the Gibraltar Music festival. I posted a whole heap of Instagram photos of the artists I saw and also of the sunsets because they were pretty darned impressive this weekend. I didn’t turn up when the doors opened. Queues galore I am told, plus I wasn’t interested in seeing too many of… Read More Gibraltar Music Festival 2015
Each morning I get awoken by Peanut for breakfast. Cats are very routine. So as it happens, are seagulls. Every day now our resident gull pecks on the door or window to get my attention for food. If I am in another room when he does it, Peanut comes and gets me. I don’t know… Read More Erm, excuse me, I’m hungry!
Well any of you that stop by on a regular basis know I that I love my grub. LOVE IT. I like trying new food (within reason, no eyeballs, no bugs, no fish with bones still in it) and last Saturday saw the return of the Calentita food festival. Yum o’clock. Once again I was… Read More Food, glorious food…

Oh goodness where does time go? We are nearly a week into the new year and I have no idea where to start. I suppose I had better start at the beginning. Or actually the end of last year… Each year you get a review of how many visitors and views you get for your… Read More January 6th 2014 – Almost a week in already?
I can’t entirely remember what we had to eat. Three of us had nachos of some variety and Mr BOTR had a chicken dish which came in a really cute pastry case. We also order battered and fried vegetables and potato wedges with jalapeños and cheese to share. What I can tell you… Read More The Cuban – Ocean Village – Gibraltar
I am only now just recovered from yesterday. If it is at all possible to overdose on cheesecake I most certainly made a very good attempt at it yesterday. I got a tweet late on Friday night from the very lovely Becca who works at Cafe Rojo saying they had a table going for the… Read More Cheesecake Tasting at Cafe Rojo
Last weekend saw the annual open day of the Convent take place once again. Even though we’ve attended a couple of times we went once again. Whilst looking around the beautiful building didn’t really offer anything new (odd given the new residents, I might have been tempted to perhaps alter something?) we did see the… Read More Convent Open Day 2014
