The Leela Kempinski, Kovalam – Kerala

This past weekend was the Good Lady’s birthday, so we headed off for a long weekend – deciding to go with the relative luxury of a Leela Kempinski resort, in Kerala. Neither of us had been to this south westerly state of India, so that was an added bonus (we’re trying to avoid repeating if … Continue reading

No excuse… I’ve been lazy.

In my last posting, I pleaded for forgiveness for infrequent posting because I had lots going on… this time, I hold my hands up & admit I could have done more this past three weeks to make sure I’ve posted. Sure I’ve been getting up at 0600 each work day morning & going for a … Continue reading

Leaving India… back to Blightly!

So we left Goa in pretty rough shape unfortunately. Our upset stomachs from the night before hadn’t gotten any better (indeed, in Dina’s case somewhat worse), we were also pretty weary from another early start. We got back to Dina’s place in Khar and got some shut eye, before cleaning up & heading out to … Continue reading

Disciplined Week, Lazy Saturday!

I’ve been trying to apply some discipline to my life since the turn of the year and I’m happy to report it’s going rather well! As I’m getting married this year (and weddings are a licence for companies to print money!) I’ve determined that I’m going to be miserly with my cash in 2012, working … Continue reading

Christmas & the New Year

So it’s 2012… a new year, with new expectations, hopes and dreams. It’s the year I intend to wed. There’s so much to look forward to. As I type this, I’m back in London in my flat in Streatham and it’s a bit nippy. We actually ran out of gas in December, so there’s paranoia … Continue reading

Turning 30…

The 13th of December this year marked my 30th Birthday. Some people get gooey eyed about milestone birthdays… I didn’t, but I did do a bit of research… apparently the life expectancy of a human being in 2011 is 67 years… so I’m still under half way, which means that my ‘youth’ has been extended … Continue reading

Movember Progress

I’ve been taking part in Movember for the first time this year, as I posted on 31st October. If you take a look at that post, you’ll notice that I was approaching Movember with a full bearded face. It’s been 11 days now and it’s been a bit odd having to deal with stubble and … Continue reading

Movember 2011

Each November the Movember charity kick off a month of fundraising to raise money for Prostate and Testicular Cancer charities around the world. Participants who raise money promise to grow a moustache as the visible symbol of their efforts. So in the spirit of things, I’m going to ‘grow a mo’ and raise cash for … Continue reading

Streatham or St. Reatham?

So having been back in the UK for just over a year my tenancy on the flat off the Old Kent Road was up for renewal… with a 10% increase on rent being added on. So with Dina successfully implanted in to Belfast and a wedding to save for I decided to move out and … Continue reading

July – What a Month!!

Well, it’s been quite a month… it started off with my little niece showing up to fill my sister-in-law’s and brother’s lives full of love and sleepless nights, before I proposed to my girlfriend Dina – and a positive response. So I guess regardless of what way this week turned out, it was always going … Continue reading
