Lo and behold, 2018 is over. As I've noticed I've been relying heavily on these picture posts to write anything at all on my blog the past few months, this is going to be the last pictures post I do (of course, I had to complete the year first!). From now on, I'll focus on… Continue reading December 2018 in pictures
“I think my pig’s whistling!”: Bizarre German animal words and phrases
It's been a long time since I wrote a language post, but I've been collecting words and phrases over the months and could quite a few posts at long last! I have noticed that a few of the words and phrases I have collected use animals, yet - most of the time - the words… Continue reading “I think my pig’s whistling!”: Bizarre German animal words and phrases

December is over and with that another year! After a delayed flight (i.e. two flight cancels and another 105-minute delay) I finally made it back to Germany a day later than planned on the 31st and got to spend my first New Year here. I also celebrated into my birthday at the start of the… Continue reading December 2016 in pictures
Genders in German: A small rant
This is definitely a post for the language lovers out there. We're very lucky in English to not have genders for words. Whenever I ask Germans what they find easy about English, 9 times out of 10 I'm told it's because you don't need to worry about remembering what gender words have. In German, you… Continue reading Genders in German: A small rant
September 2016 in pictures
September has been a really busy month. I've been in Frankfurt the whole time, bar a brief visit to Braunschweig at the start of the month, yet there seems to have been a lot going on, with my favourite of course being the Nintendo party! Here's September 2016 in pictures!
January 2016 in pictures
A little on the late side, but I'm going to power through January to April now in four separate posts. After looking through my photos from January... well, let's just say, it seems like a pretty boring month. Two of my weekends were work meetings, and generally I didn't take that many photos. So here… Continue reading January 2016 in pictures
100 things I’ve learnt in Frankfurt
Due to me being a complete geek with numbers (I get it off my mum!) and using one of my favourite websites - Wolfram|Alpha - I've worked out that today is my 100th day in Frankfurt. And what better way to celebrate than with a fun blog post around the number 100. Here are the 100 things… Continue reading 100 things I’ve learnt in Frankfurt
Nintendo, a new WG… and did I mention Nintendo?
Guten Abend and good evening! I am now just about half way into Week 7 of my Frankfurt life, and I am still loving every single minute of it - even the working bit, believe it or not! And already two weeks have gone by since my last post, which I myself can't quite believe. Work… Continue reading Nintendo, a new WG… and did I mention Nintendo?
Mario Kart 8!
If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, then just over a month ago you probably saw the excited tweets and Facebook statuses about the arrival of something beautiful. And I don't mean another of my housemate's delicious birthday cakes (my birthday cake can be found on her blog here). Oh God, now I'm hungry.… Continue reading Mario Kart 8!
