This year, we decided to try Hamburg for the Christmas Markets. Two years ago we did Nuremburg, and last year we were in Basil, Switzerland. All year, I have been probing my German clients for suggestions, and Hamburg had many good recommendations. It was about 2 weeks before Thanksgiving when I finally sat down and made plans. So, an Easyjet and AirBNB later, we were settled.  German Christ...

This year, I am lucky to be celebrating Thanksgiving in a new home. It's extra special because now I own it. All of the things I have bought over the years that I have stored away "until we buy a house" have come out and are in full use. It has been a dream come true, and I think this was the best Thanksgiving meal I've ever made! I have lived in London for 18 years. We have spent about 12 of the...

That is the question! Since moving to London 14 years ago, I have grown quite fond of a cup of tea. The photo above is of my own tea shelf, whereby I have a slight problem knowing when to not buy it! It’s so much fun! It’s cheap, it’s comforting, it’s got variety... I love tea! I’m not a tea snob, I leave that to the experts. I just try and buy what I like, and I pre...

Yesterday was the 10th anniversary of the 7/7 bombings in London. After viewing so many messages of London love, support, courage and pain, I asked myself the question: “Where were you that day?” Here’s my answer: My husband and I had moved back to London in April, just a few months before. We had lived here 2 years earlier, and luckily we had both been offered jobs to come back...
