Anything to keep the apartment warm and toasty! This month we (Mr BOTR and I) shall be celebrating five years of being hitched. That five… Read More So January is done!

As I mentioned in an earlier post we managed to sneak into the event early, after having a look backstage we made our way over to the En Vogue stand where designer Resham Mahtani was busy setting up.

Since we moved to Gibraltar I have heard about the La Linea Wednesday morning market. My lovely neighbour kept reminding me to go, but somehow I just never seemed to get there…. until this week!

So last week was spent in the UK. For our annual early Christmas holiday. I have to warn you this post is mostly going to be a gripe about the worst Monday we have had in a while, combined with some Tesco bashing!
