Playing Tag Along


Okay, I’m taking part in a game of tag just because I can and because it’s fun. I was tagged by Dippy Dotty Girl who blogs at

Describe your 2016 in three words

Reducing an entire year to just three words is going to be tricky, but here goes:-

  • Busy
  • Rewarding
  • Fun

I try to pack as much as I can into each year, time is a finite commodity. I maintain the key is plenty of planning and preparation which is something I love doing. So you’ll be unsurprised to learn that much of 2017 is already planned out and it’s going to be another amazing year.

Two people who made 2016 what it was

Life is what YOU make it. So that would be my beloved and I.

The most beautiful place you visited in 2016 and why you chose it

We stayed in so many lovely places. Some for the first time, while others were revisits. However, given that we spent the start and finish of 2016 in Australia, I guess it gets my vote. Now Australia’s a big place, and I’ve only visited a very small part of it, nonetheless, I put together a mosaic of some of my favourite spots.

The most delicious dish you have tasted in 2016

Funnily enough that was probably something I cooked for friends for dinner, a lobster curry from Adam Handling’s Smile or Get Out of the Kitchen. Mine didn’t look quite as beautiful as his but it tasted spectacular. I had a bit of a wobble while cooking it and his restaurant, The Frog in London E1, kindly responded to my queries – how’s that for service?

An event which left its mark upon you in 2016 (even a global event counts) 

Brexit – nuff said.

The finest purchase you made in 2016 (and if you want you can link up a photo of it)

I’m always on the hunt for the perfect (for me) pair of trousers and I found them in a shop in Chicago. It’s a German company, has been around for a while but had slipped under my radar. Since buying my first pair in February 2016, I have acquired many more, along with some tops and dresses. I’m what might be called a serial purchaser, when I find something I like, I buy in bulk. Probably won’t need to worry about buying another pair of trousers ever again!

Three good intentions for 2017 

  • Work less, ride more
  • Spend more time in the kitchen
  • Make the most of every day

One place you want to visit in 2017

I’ve promised myself that we’ll go and watch another MotoGP race this year, either at Catalunya or Mugello

One dish you want to eat in 2017

There’s lots of dishes I’d like to be able to eat but I’ve kinda accepted I’m going to have to stick with the fish eating vegan regime from now on if I want to remain healthy. So my dish would be a great plate of seafood – lobster, octopus, oysters, prawns, clams, mussels.

I would like to Tag………

I’m going to follow the example set by my tagger. I tag whoever reads this and wants to do this tag. Your choice but looking back on 2016 might just bring a smile to your face as you recall recent fond memories.
