I love pretty gardens and I fell in love with gardening again last year much to my delight (I’ve probably said this a million times now!).  I’m always on the look out for gardening inspiration so I popped over to explore Castle Ashby Gardens in Northamptonshire during the summer when all their gardens were bursting with colour.

While Castle Ashby isn’t open itself, you can wander around the impressive 35 acres of gardens which are styled so you feel like you’re stepping back in time.

…SHEEP…and you know that this Kiwi is absolutely petrified on sheep…I did stop to take a photo once I realised I was safely inside the smurf mobile and they couldn’t eat me.

Parking the car, there is a long walk to the start of the gardens from the entrance however you get to set your eyes on the beautiful house in the distance…

A little red breasted robin and I took a wander around the Orangery, stopping to take photos (me, not the Robin…I’m not too afraid of a cute little Robin for some reason but birds in general, yes…Castle Ashby was throwing all my fears at me in one go!).

I was thinking of bringing my family back for a picnic in the gardens when they were over last year however we had our picnic at the National Trust Property Stowe instead…either garden is a lovely spot to visit for a picnic.  Castle Ashby has picnic tables dotted around the gardens making it very family friendly.

Weight: 95.5 kgs

“You can’t stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.” – A.A. Milne, Winnie the Pooh

My Life Goal, ze Weight

So the weight came down a little this week…as I said last week, I’m not to fussed at the moment as I’m letting the ol’ hormones settle down again.

Shake Your Booty

I’ve done yoga all week bar one day and the one day I didn’t do yoga, I felt absolutely horrendous the following day…all that deep breathing is obviously working for me!

What I’ve Read

Absolutely loved this post about #realwomentravel by The Midnight Blue Elephant…a must read if you dislike the picture perfect photos you see on instagram…I’ve followed a number of the accounts in her post as they are just real women travelling the world with normal photos…this post made me rather happy!

This week I’ve managed to read two books…absolutely fluffy books that didn’t make me think and that was just perfect and much needed.  The Honey Farm on the Hill by Jo Thomas had me dreaming of Greece…and wanting to book a flight (we booked flights to Stockholm instead…not for a weekend break but to connect with our flight to NZ)…pure fluff and good easy holiday read.

Then an even fluffier book, One Hot Summer by Kate Frenchset in Shropshire (a great county!) but the book doesn’t actually really leave the house much; an American country singer escapes to the UK after his divorce and the wife of a tv star who has just got divorce and needs to rent out her large country house as she can’t afford the mortgage…you know how it’s going to end and it does…pure cheese.  There are quite a few funny characters in the book so I had a giggle here and there.  FLUFF but fun fluff!

What I’m Up Too…

So just came home from having dinner with G’s mum…I made tikka masala from scratch (this recipe in case you’re interested) and saw a beautiful owl sitting on the fence as I was leaving the village.  He was beautiful or maybe it was a gal…who knows!

I had my hair cut yesterday and I’ve gone pixie cut short…not sure what I think of it at the moment…I have a lot of body in my hair…it’s only a week between a good and a bad haircut at the moment for me as my hair is growing super fast.

Finishing off another DIY job tomorrow…pretty excited about it means my shoe room is finally going to be completed and I can start on another room.  I don’t show photos of our home on the blog for one reason…security…it’s quite easy to work out where someone lives these days thanks to all this modern technology and then if they see you’re on holiday via social media…well you could come home to a very decluttered home!  So I keep our home and belongings off social media and the blog as much as possible.  A bit like why I don’t use my surname on my blog!

Anyway enough of my babbling, Happy Weekend everyone!

On our recent trip to Austria, we spent a glorious 48 hours in Salzburg to visit the Christmas markets and to explore the city.  This was my fourth visit to Salzburg and I thought I would be a bit bored however visiting during winter made me see Salzburg through a fresh pair of eyes and I wasn’t disappointed.

I will be honest and say that we were all a bit disappointed with the Salzburg Fortress and didn’t think it was worth the money; the signage was appalling and just the overall flow and information didn’t really work for us but the views over Salzburg are just gorgeous so that was a nice little silver lining.

…I had a piece of gluten free cake just for you!  They had two gluten free options on the day we visited so it’s good to see that there are choices available.

Waking up the following morning, we pulled back the curtains to be greeted by a blanket of snow covering the city and it was still falling…thank goodness we had visited the Salzburg Fortress the day before.

The following morning, we had a hearty breakfast at the hotel before jumping in a taxi back to the airport to pick up a rental car for our little road trip along Austria’s Romantic Road.

Travel Tips for 48 Hours in Salzburg, Austria

  • A taxi from the airport should cost you no more than 15 euros 
  • The Old Town is a pedestrian only zone so if you have booked a hotel in this area then you will find that they may not be able to take you right up to the door if you arrive via taxi
  • We stayed at the Crowne Plaza Salzburg The Pitter as we had a few IHG points to use up; I’m trying to be rather frugal at the moment.  The rooms are lovely however we didn’t have the best check in experience…it was so bad that G actually complained.  The hotel no longer sits under the IHG Brand and is now part of the Imlauer Hotel Group.
  • Make sure you take comfortable shoes with plenty of grip especially if it is due to snow.  I wrote a post on what to wear to the Christmas Markets however this is what I would advise if visiting any European city during the winter months.
  • A donation is requested for entry into the Salzburg Cathedral (Dom) – address is Domplatz, Salzburg 5010, Austria
  • The Salzburg Fortress (Festung Hohensalzburg) costs a staggering 15.50 euros per person and includes the funicular ride to the top.  We didn’t think it was worth the money as it was lacking in directions, information and just plain old things to look at that you would expect for the price! Address is Moenchsberg 34, Salzburg 5020, Austria
  • To visit Schloss Hellbrunn and the Sound of Music Gazebo, catch the Number 25 bus from the Old Town…you can buy tickets on the bus or from a newsagent prior to boarding.  Address is  Fürstenweg 37, 5020 Salzburg, Austria
  • Hotel Sacher in Salzburg is probably Salzburg’s most luxurious hotel and located right across from the Old Town.  The tea room is famous for it’s Sacher Torte, unfortunately they don’t make a gluten free option but it’s a nice place to stop for a hot drink and a piece of cake if you’re enjoying 48 hours in Salzburg.
  • The Heart of Joy Cafe is open from 8am – 7.00pm / 8.30pm most days offering a great variety of gluten free and vegan food…I would recommend this cafe to anyone visiting the city.  The address is Franz-Josef-Straße 3, 5020 Salzburg, Austria and is located a short walk from the Mirabell Palace and Gardens.
  • Remember to take a spare battery or two for your phone and camera, the battery life is rather pants to say the least as they lose charge quicker in cold weather!

Kelly Michelle's Diary Week 1, 2018

My Life Goal, ze Weight

I’ve gone up again this week but I’m not to worried as am trying to let my hormones settle down after having the coil removed last month.

Shake Your Booty

Yay to exercise, I’ve really started to enjoy exercise again which is ace.  I’ve had a cold for the last few days so haven’t done any exercise as just letting my body to rest rather than trying to push it.

What I’ve Read

I’m really starting to enjoy reading again…I think we all go through stages in life and at the moment I’m a real little home body who is happy to snuggle up in front of the fire with a book and cuppa.  I’m not the fastest of readers but I now come home, make dinner and then sit down for 30 minutes to read my book and just chill.

I’ve just finished reading The Place We Met by Isabelle Broom which is set in Lake Como over the festive period; it’s a bit slow moving at the beginning when you first start following Taggie and Lucy but it soon picks up speed as the characters intertwine.  The book is all about forgiveness, moving on and acceptance.  There is a sentence in the book that I loved – “the most important person you can grow up to be is yourself”.

I’ve loved reading Anna’s post on her 2018 Travel Plans and a New Year Request this week…it’s a very honest post and I agree with every word Anna has written.  We stay at chain hotels, mainly IHG as we have loads of points and are trying to be rather frugal at the moment, points equal free rooms however we do splurge on a unique hotel now and then .  Travel is a privilege whatever way you pay for it.  I haven’t trusted a comp’d blogger review for over a year now as bloggers on a complimentary visit are treated very differently vs a paying guest (you can disagree with me but it’s very true!)…I look at blogs written by normal folks who pay for their own room with their own hard earned cash to see what service they receive and trip advisor (it gives you an idea of the good, the bad and the ugly and you go with something in-between all three!).

What I’m Up Too…

I went back to work on Tuesday and was straight into Year End Accounting which I love…I love the madness of pulling numbers together and then getting a bit creative.  One of the Engineers asked me on Friday if I was cooking the books…I told him I was lightly dicing a few numbers but hadn’t starting cooking anything as yet…we got a bit puntastic…it was a long week.

Our Christmas Tree came down on the 28th of December, I don’t wait around…I like to have space in our home but isn’t it crazy how messy a house gets over the festive period…where does all this stuff come from…I have a whole shoe room upstairs but have still found 5 pairs of shoes in the back lounge (we have two lounges, a front lounge and a back lounge, thought I would explain that one to you as it sounds a bit weird).

G and I have spent the last few mornings watching the birds in our back garden; we have a number of open bird feeders and it’s so funny to watch as the birds all line up on the fence and then swoop in one at a time…it’s like watching a birds version of a McDonalds Drive Thru.  If you do buy a bird feeder for your garden make sure that it’s open, not a closed one.  In London, they are seeing the beaks on birds are changing shape to fit inside bird feeders.

This year I don’t have any resolutions…I still want to visit every county and plan to finish this off in 2018!  I have a few exciting plans to look forward to and new endeavours; I know plans don’t necessarily always go to plan, I’m looking forward to whatever 2018 throws at me this year.

Anyway enough of my babbling; I hope you all had a great start to 2018!  What is everyone up to this month?

As part of our road trip through Poland, we spent 36 hours in Wroclaw and for me, it’s one of my favourite places that I’ve ever visited in Poland to date (It would be hard to choose between Wroclaw and Krakow if I’m honest…Krakow has more to do but Wroclaw is prettier).

Why did I love Wroclaw so much….easy, it’s such an unassuming city; it’s colourful, fun and there are lots of quirky things to do.  Okay one of my favourite bits was that it didn’t feel like it had lost its soul to mass tourism YET!  It felt a bit like Porto did when I visited a few years ago…I do wonder how I would feel about Porto if I visited now.

We arrived late evening so Ma, Pa and Lisa headed out to explore…I stayed and rested at the apartment as a visit to a castle had worn me out earlier in the day (I was that much of a fragile princess…Dad may have had to push my bum up a hill!)…waking up as fresh as a daisy the following day we went out exploring Wroclaw pretty early….

I did love the mid-century detailing in this café; while I love art deco jewellery and buildings, mid-century furniture is my jam (I have an East German 1960’s sofa that I love that I bought off eBay earlier this year!).

Travel Tips for Wroclaw, Poland

  • Wizz Air fly directly from Luton Airport to Wroclaw, Poland
  • We stayed at this apartment which comfortably slept 4 people and the location was grand (close to the old town, free parking and on a street lined with restaurants which many were gluten free or vegan!)
  • There are a number of accommodation options available in Wroclaw…booking.com is a great starting point and there is a Sofitel in Wroclaw for a spot of luxury.
  • Wroclaw is super cheap compared to Krakow or Warsaw
  • You can walk everywhere in the city however you can take the trams or a tuk tuk tour if you wear your little feet out.
  • Take comfortable walking shoes as there are cobbled streets.
  • If you want to see the gas lamps being lit by the cape crusader then you need to hightail it over to Cathedral island prior to sunset; we arrived a good half an hour prior to sunset.
  • Looking for something a bit different for a souvenir the make sure you check out Folkstar which stocks Polish folk prints and other goodies; that’s where I purchased my yellow necklace from **Coughs** I may have it in blue and red also!  Address is Odrzańska 15, 48-300 Wrocław, Poland
  • Cafe Nanan is beautiful; great selection of cakes if you can eat gluten – address is Kotlarska 32, 11-400 Wrocław, Poland
  • The undercover Food and Flower market (Wroclaw Market Hall) is located at Piaskowa 17, 50-359 Wrocław, Poland.   There a number of gluten free options inside the market including meats, cheese, fruit and vegetable plus a shop specialising in gluten free items
  • The Anonymous Pedestrians can be found at the corner of ul. Piłsudskiego and ul. Świdnicka, Wroclaw
  • There are a few gluten free restaurants down street Świętego Antoniego, Wrocław
  • If you want to read more about my Poland adventures then here are a few more posts for ya…Dwarf Hunting in Wroclaw, Ksiaz Castle, PolandWarsaw vs Krakow, City Break to Krakow and my review of the Sheraton Krakow.
  • During my time in Poland, I struggled to find anyone that would accept an American Express card so make sure you have other options when visiting Poland.  Visa and MasterCard are widely accepted.
