Hi everyone, this is just going to be a quick update. As I mentioned in my last post I said that the weather had suddenly gotten really cold.. well that phase was over pretty quickly! It is definitely not cold anymore, it’s just cold during the night. The days are warm but not as hot as when they are during the summer which is good because I live in a house that does not have a ceiling...

You're Hot And You're Cold!
Just a quick update! I can officially confirm we have moved into autumn! The weather has literally changed with a click! A couple of weeks ago it was still quite hot and then suddenly one day it was cooler because it rained and since then it has been COLD. Though it’s mostly due to overcast or rainy weather, if it’s sunny the temperature can be quite warm or mild. The night gets REALLY...

Acerola Lovin'! ♥
Today’s post is going to be about all the good stuff that makes me happy here in Brazil! I’m always missing things from the UK but there are a lot of things here that I miss whenever I am back in the UK so I thought I’d share my likes and lurves with you! So I think you can tell one of the things from the title of the post - acerola! I’ve always loved acerola juice,...
So what’s one of the most annoying things EVER that I absolutely hate about living in Brazil?? When people randomly turn up at your house without no warning whatsoever! The Mr. has a particular friend and cousin who love doing this. First let me tell you about the friend. I like the guy, he’s a nice person, I have no problem hanging out with him and his wife.. BUT various times he...
Christmas holidays update..
Oh and how could I have forgotten to mention in my other post that my mum came over for a week before Christmas in Salvador?!! Well she did, and it was luuurvly! Of course the week passed really quickly but it was better than nothing. Last time I had seen her was in June/July 2010 when I went to London. She brought me some nice treats such as mince pies and Marks & Sparks Percy Pigs!! I could...
New year, new semester
This semester for me is a tad different than the last, as in I have HALF the amount of groups at work than last semester! Last semester I had four groups, I only have two groups now as for some reason the coordinator decided to take away a group I was initially going to get. I have a kids group in the morning and an adult group in the evening. The kids group isn’t bad, miles away from the little...
Holidays are over! Wahh!
So I’m back after the holidays, tried to relish every single last moment before the first day back at work! lol The holidays were great, didn’t want them to end! We spent Christmas and New Year’s with my family in Salvador which was lovely as always. The hubby came back to Minas first and I stayed on for a bit. When I got back we spent a weekend in Araxá, I looooved it. Great...
More than just a Delicious Delight!
So in my last entry I said I would dedicate a post to the amazing chocolate covered strawberries I love at the shopping center so here it is! OK so the stall is from a franchise called Fabrica di Chocolate. There are various chocolate things to choose from the Big Fondue to pots of chocolate mousse, check out the menu here. I of course always choose the Big Fondue: ...
Change of Plans... Again..!
I look forward to the weekend like I look forward to eating the melted chocolate covered strawberries at the shopping center. (I will totally dedicate a whole post to these melted chocolate covered strawberries.. they’re AMAZING!) In other words I luuurv the weekend like most people and I hate it whenever the hubby has to work as he works long hours during the week so no quality time. This...
So our neighbours are freaks, as in they like to do building work at the fricking crack of dawn!! I would be so pissed if I sill didn’t have to wake up so damn early and these people were waking me up every morning with their BANG BANG BANGING! The being freaks is also confirmed by the fact that they sometimes do the banging in the early hours of the morning but do F*A* during the day! Come...
Last Friday night...
So, Friday night was crap. We were supposed to go to a good bar/pub here called London which the Mr.’s sister-in-law had suggested us do at the beginning of the week. I was looking forward to it because this place is apparently quite good and I still haven’t been there since I’ve been living here. As hubby and I were getting ready my bro-in-law calls to say that the missus...
No, I will never get used to cockroaches!!!!
So last the other night I had an experience that’s still making my skin crawl!! I was getting ready for bed and had just put on my long sleeved pyjama top. I felt something against my skin which I thought was probably just one of the annoying beetles that have been practically taking over the house every evening, so I took of the pyjama top to check and to my HORROR it was a COCKROACH!!! I...
Roll on December!!
Sooo, it’s only the beginning of the new semester and I want December to be here like now!! ‘Why?’ You may ask, well this semester I have a particular group of kids who are absolutely NUTS. Seriously, the hour that I spend with them has got to be the loudest hour I experience throughout the whole week! NOTHING works to calm them down! Relaxing music does not work. Any music...
Let's do lunch?
Sooo last week I met up with one of the Mr’s former English teachers. She has been through exactly what we have; She’s English, her hubby’s Brazilian and his visa was refused too. But not only once, twice! The first time their relationship was thought to be fake even though they have a son, the second time they were given more dumb ass refusal reasons.. The ECO wasn’t...
Say hi to Lolita! =) She’s our rescue doggy. Poor babi was abandoned when she was still a puppy. She’s been with us for about 6 months now. When she arrived she was just skin and bones and had a few bald patches on her skin, but worst of all the poor thing was extremely traumatised from whatever she had been enduring up until we adopted her. My sister in law saw her curled up in...
So here I am writing to you, finally decided to do a ‘proper’ blog, as in one I actually update and use! =p I’ve been here in Brazil for over a year now, I came in December 2009 but with the intention that me and hubby would try for his visa again as soon as possible and return to the UK within good time but it didn’t work out like that. So I went back to the UK for hols...
