Silence in Golden
I grew up being told that "silence is golden" and, I must admit that I never really understood why or how or what gold has to do with quietness. However, we've left our blog silent for days during which time, something truly golden has happened in our life....

| Recipe | Refreshing Kaisou Salad
One of my favourite things to dine on during the warmer months is a Japanese seaweed salad. It is beautiful to look at, full of flavour and deliciously refreshing -especially on hot/humid days. Nutritionally, seaweed provide  all 56 elements essential for h...

| Photo Diary | Epiphany in a Car Park
"Only you, would purposely visit a car park on holiday Yasumi!", said my boss to me, after listening to me babble on about our time in Porto. After booking our accommodation, Hiro (who is obsessed maps) decided to look up the location of the hotel on Google...

| Recipe | Tofu Salad + Oilive Oil Citrus Dressing
I recently reworked my tomato salad and relished it from my balcony perch one sunny lunchtime. It is such a simple dish to prepare and great if you are working from home because it is revitalising and quick to make. The coming together of a good olive oil a...

| Thoughts | Rain
I miss the clear brollies that you get in Japan. They make rainy days a little brighter somehow.  I like how they are so cheap and so readily available. I like how they are shared and move from one person to the next because people leave them in places like...

| Photo Diary | Reticence
Though the cloisters of Gloucester Cathedral may be more known as the corridors of Hogwarts for Harry Potter (in the 1st 2 instalments of the franchise), there is far more to this old place than that. It started its life around 678 or 679 as a church then a...

| Abandoned | Perishing Hotel
Finding ourselves in places where we ought not to be has become a habit over the years. However, it is not a habit that we can ever feel completely at ease with and we never fail to feel that edge of unease pressing against us.  These photos were taken in a...

| Home | Bathroom Shelfies
We are not a "his" and "hers" type couple but when we moved into our apartment, we discovered that the bathroom had a cheap little IKEA cabinet and as it was not big enough for the both of us, we went out and got another. We ended up with matching cabinets!...

| Design | Task Lamps
New home has meant new desk space for me. The lamp that had stood by my desk illuminating my work has been given a new purpose in our living room and the shadow that it's left has begun to bother me so I set about looking for a replacement. I wanted a relia...

| Stationery | Custom Notebook
If you have a good memory, you may recall me stating my general dislike of spiral bound notebooks. Which may then make you wonder what on earth I am doing with this one. Well, this one is special ! It is completely custom made for me. I chose the cover, the...
