It has been a great weekend spent with family and eating chocolate goods! That includes a chocolate flavoured Avengers cereal (another childish guilty pleasure for me). Like Christmas Day, Elle and I decided to spend half of Easter Sunday with my parents and the other half with her parents. This works out well for us … More Easter Weekend
The four-day weekend has begun! Elle and I spent the day at Westfield in Stratford today. Yes, it really is possible to spend an entire day enjoying this grandiose shopping mall. Our first port of call was Starbucks, where we redeemed our free coffee of the week. The photo above features cups signed by atheletes … More Happy Good Friday!
In February I posted a blog called 40 Days. This was a self-inflicted challenge to give up chocolate as I was snacking on it way too much. At the time, I thought I didn’t have a chance in hell.

Back in the day, I was always put off by the mere … More Lush Spa – The Comforter
Following the sadness of my last post, this week has been a bit brighter. The sadness still hits me in waves occasionally, but the pain is manageable. My wife and I are giving our remaining two gerbils (Lexie and Robyn) a lot of love and attention. The week has been as cold as usual, with … More Great Cocktails and a Civil War
Today my wife and I said goodbye to Aeris, one of three female gerbils whom we consider to be part of the family. If you’ve never had pets, its a little hard to explain just how much this breaks my heart. Our gerbils mean so much to us, and we love them with all our … More Goodbye, Aeris
