When August ends each year I have this feeling like everything is changing. Summer is over and it's time to get back to reality. Well for most of my life it was time to go back to school and now it is like a wake up call. Time is going by and it is not slowing down for anything. The year is not over yet and still a lot can happen and change so make it count. August went by slow at first until the past week when I blinked and it was gone. This month I read a few books, trying to catch up on the challenge I set myself to read 25 books this year, I've got 10 to go and I'm hoping I will acomplish my goal. One night I dressed up a little for a party, it's always good to let yourself laugh and dance with good friends. Tried a different coffee shop this month, Harris and Hoole do a great chai latte. I also discovered the delicious combination of peanut butter and raspberries, trust me when I say you should try it.

August Days

Everyone has their favourite meal they like to have at breakfast, lunch and dinner. This Summer I have a new favourite dinner dish. As a pescetarian I'm always happy to discover a new idea, it is a bonus for my Mum if everyone else in the house (the meat eaters) also like it too. And now I'd like to share it with the vegetarians out there. 

You will need.. pitta bread, hummus, olive oil, halloumi and vegetables. Use any vegetables you like but I find that mushrooms, peppers, courgette and onions work best. 

Prepare and chop the vegetables into bite size pieces and the halloumi into slices. Place the vegetables onto a tray and drizzle olive oil over them, on a separate tray place the halloumi onto it. Then put them in the oven for 30 minutes. A few minutes before the vegetables and the halloumi are ready, take your pitta bread, slice in half and put them in the oven for a few minutes to warm them up. Once that is done, take them out, get your hummus and start putting everything you want in the pitta bread. Very simple and delicious. 


Let me know if you have any vegetarian meal idea, I'd love to hear them!

In 1999 when the internet was beginning to grow and becoming part of every body's life and for Lincoln it was the place that changed his life as he knew it. He was working as an IT guy in an office where his responsibility was to monitor e-mails of the employees. A job that was isolated for the most part and uninteresting. Apart from e-mails between Jennifer and Beth who sent e-mails back and forth everyday about their lives and distracting each other from work. The e-mails were a welcoming part of his day and he then begins to fall in love with one of them.

It is insightful to read a story about love that is felt through only an online interaction. Especially in this modern digital age where it is becoming far more common. It is another avenue to explore and meet new people that I think is sometimes seen as weird or unusual. The world is evolving and as technology develops so does the way we interact with each other. Just like the characters in Attachments, who grew and changed into better versions of themselves. I personally felt I could relate to Lincoln, Beth and Jennifer in different way and I'm sure everyone can identify with a quality in one of them, especially if you're in your twenties. I wanted to see where they went, in the same way my own pages turn in my life. And reminds us that it is okay to love whoever we want no matter how they enter our lives. Definitely worth reading if you enjoy contemporary novels.

The other week I took a trip to Marrakech, Morocco with my sister for a few days, a Summer break and a birthday treat for both of us. It has been on both of our lists of places to go and explore for a while and it is relatively inexpensive considering we entered another continent and a nice change to a typical European getaway. We stayed in a Riad, the bed and breakfast of Marrakech, they are everywhere and in the places you would not expect. When we were brought to a small blue door we were amazed at how big the space inside was and peaceful when the busy streets and alleyways are just outside. A haven in a city full of crazy yet functional drivers and motorbike riders where we could lay on the sun terrace and cool down in the dipping pool. Served sweet mint tea, a simple yet filling breakfast and very helpful hosts. 

Venturing out to the souks (markets) was a bit of a challenge trying to avoid all of the traders trying to do everything they can to get you to buy their goods. In the old Medina where we stayed it was an ideal location that was walking distance to a few places like the Jemaa el-Fnaa square and the Jardin Majorelle as well as endless markets. After weaving through the alleyways and getting a little lost there are sellers that are very kind and helpful, showing you where you can get something you're looking for or just being friendly and jokingly suggesting you to add them on Facebook. The food was very cheap to buy, one evening we managed to have dinner for £7 for two of us. I either had vegetables and couscous or vegetable tagine, both very tasty and I'm craving the fluffy couscous right now, best I've ever had. The orange juice is sweet and refreshing, perfect in the 37 degrees of heat.

Some of the buildings we would walk past had such interesting doors and windows. Very colourful and different to what you find in England. As we were in a Muslim city the call to prayer alerts were interesting, especially the way people would be rushing and the streets would empty however being woken up at 1am was not pleasant. In the late afternoons we would escape to a park and lay in the shade for a while, everyone is very chilled in the gardens, the trees are perfect with large leaves to keep it cool. We could really feel the difference between home and there, the people, the traditions and everything. It opens your eyes to how countries develop in different ways and how different the way of life is for people who live thousands of miles away from you, definitely an experience.
