When I am an old woman

Hello dear reader – it’s been a while. A combination of tending to a poorly cat, going on holiday, training for the Prague half marathon and writing some cafe reviews has conspired to keep me from blogging as frequently before. Whilst I was away skiing however, inspiration bit and I saw something that I just had to share:  An old man … Continue reading

There are two types of people in the world

It was snowing in Prague 2 at 7.15 this morning. I know as together with hubby, I was outside running in it.  I mentioned a while ago that one of my over ambitious new year resolutions was to run four half marathons in 2012.

Although perhaps that was a little premature as by the late evening the flat was freezing, our baby-kittens looked at me like … Continue reading

To the castle (not back)

I spent hours on Saturday trying to get to the castle.  Not Prague Castle, or even Vysehrad (which is meant to be lovely – let’s go in the spring), but a polystyrene castle on a ski slope in a tiny ski resort in the Jeseníky mountains, in northern Czech Republic.   We spent a happy day snowboarding … Continue reading

Nothing says Christmas like a gold twig.

Christmas in Praha is very jolly indeed.  I’m going out on a limb here, as it is not even Christmas proper yet. But I have had my first fake Christmas already, with another one scheduled for this weekend.  December started with an abundance of snow and with our brilliant friends Pippa and Simon coming to … Continue reading
