Happy 2012!!! I have had a very nice time with my family and have been taking all the rest in the world during the holidays enjoying great food and even greater wine! Today we decided to go to the Aquarium at the Loch Lomond Shores and we had an absolute great time! I was more excited about the fish than all the children in there and went on the Carousel and had a very nice banana cake at the coffee shop there. What a great day that was!
Oh I have also had a change in my looks! Can you notice the difference?
This where I was last Sunday before the heavy snow covered Glasgow. We went with my family to the Boat House near Loch Lomond for lunch. You can find their website here. The environment was absolutely superb, the decoration of the place was completely my style, and the food was very good too. We had the paella and the wine mussels.
I could also imagine myself spending lazy Sunday afternoons having tea and cakes and reading magazines and newspapers in their lounge area. We will be returning there a lot… Enjoy the photos!
Which is your favourite restaurant/cafe/bar?
Autumn is very beautiful in Glasgow. The leaves on the chestnut trees take the most amazing colors and it is such a joy to visit the beautiful Botanic Gardens. I like to take a walk in the Botanics every day watching the squirrels run across my path with their feather light tails, look at the extraordinary colors of the leaves and take it all in as if it was a big painting of a great artistic.
How does your city look in autumn?
I know I know…I have not updated the blog for ages and I have missed it so much! Yesterday we went with some good friends on a boat trip around the Isle of Arran, had a great lunch with Caesar salad and fabulous chocolate cherry pie that my Colin made from scratch, drank champagne and bonded. I was also so happy to wear my red Vogue sunglasses my dad bought for me as a gift for the summer.
Some people above had decided to name their boat “Quantum of Solace”. I found this worth of a picture!
Today I took my dad to our favourite coffee/restaurant place in Glasgow. It is called Little Italy and it has, to my opinion, the best coffee and the best pizza in Glasgow. My dad loves it too and we go there every morning for a treat. I also love their Portuguese tarts. Yum yum!!! I had my favourite cappucino and an amaretto cheesecake.
