Darsham Nurseries, Suffolk

Darsham Nurseries

I really love driving. I love driving alone (when I can listen to podcasts) and I love driving with friends, nattering all the way. Since Angelica has only a set amount of time in the UK before she has to go back to the US, I am often coming up with places I think she should see.

Alice and I are Suffolk girls, and we were keen to show Angelica the beauty of our home county, so we went on a little road trip.

From Cambridge, you’d pass Darsham Nurseries if you’re heading over to Dunwich, or perhaps Southwold, and definitely to Latitude. You’d not see it unless you knew it was there, so don’t feel bad for not knowing about this awesome place.  [Read more…]

Friday Links 10th November

Cambridge UK

Things with the American didn’t last long. My hopes weren’t up, so it’s ok.The last straw for me was when he and his buddy were yelling that the bonfire night fireworks were “just like Afghanistan” and how it’s giving them “PTSD”. Mildenhall, Suffolk is the furthest from home they have ever been. Neither of them have passports.

I’m thinking of maybe doing a whole bunch of dates exclusively with people younger than me to see how that goes. If you’re in Cambridge and want to set me up then please do! I strongly believe that referrals are the way to go.

Let’s Linkie!

Bev has been eating bugs – not sure I would want to, despite them tasting like a veggie burger!

It seems to be the month of new things, as Beth is trying gymnastics!

I loved watching Katy English and co’s travels around Japan, and I’m so excited for all the blog posts. Here’s what to expect when you first go to Japan.

Need a side hustle? Career Contessa has a whole bunch of them for you.

This Reddit post with a mock up of Instagram in 2011 and 2017 is hilarious and spot on.

I love to geek out on marketing blog posts a bit, and it was great to see this about how big brands are prioritising influencer marketing now.

NYC preschools look pretty intense. I think I might just have my kids draw kittens and stuff like that.

Emma has some great travel tips – actually decent and useful ones!

The gorgeous Lizzie has some great book recommendations for these cold nights.

I’ll leave you with an interesting video I watched this week. I’m not a fan of the Japanese host of Asian Boss (there’s something…off about him) but the content is invariably of high quality. The video below is about how Japanese girls get scouted for porn. This is something I saw on the streets in Nagoya when I studied there. I might even write a bigger blog post about it at some point.

Have a lovely weekend!

Ditch Your Soggy Sandwich and Get to All Bar One

All Bar One Cambridge

Lunch for me is usually function over fun. I bring in something from home, and invariably I’ll look over it at noon wishing that it was more exciting.

Enter All Bar One. [Read more…]

Issho Leeds

Japanese food Leeds

It’s very hard to get good Japanese food in the UK, without at least giving away at least three of your limbs. While I was preparing for my Leeds trip, I saw a number of bloggers visit Issho, a new Japanese restaurant up on a rooftop on a very swanky shopping arcade.

I knew I had to go, no matter what. [Read more…]
