Gorgeous view across the Danube to Pest from the Fisherman’s Bastion (at Halászbástya | Fisherman’s Bastion)
Finished off Saturday with three amazing courses and two bottles of red at Dinner by Heston Blumenthal.
If you can go, definitely go!
Amazing and friendly service, a wonderful round table where we could all see and hear each other, a view into the kitchen to see the live action, and a view out into the park on the other side.
And most of all: the best pork chop I have ever had. I don’t know how I’ll ever eat another one again elsewhere and like it!
If you go, try the meat fruit and the tipsy pineapple cake (a dessert that’s over two hours in the making!).
With Easter later this weekend - a few of the most adorable Easter crafts and treats
…. had to theme this Friday’s corgi of course!
Few. The end of the week — I am so glad it’s finally feeling more like spring here. Dare I say, I even broke out some brightly coloured dresses and heels this week, finally! Best of all - it’s a long weekend with two Bank Holidays here in the UK! We have a busy weekend ahead of us with birthday celebrations, time with friends, a visit to the Kernel, Dinner by Heston, and a double feature movie showing. Hopefully the sun will stay out to keep our days long and warm - enjoy your weekend!
….. not a peep from you!
Happy Easter weekend! Hoorah for being off work today. Also, peeps are one of those things that I think always sounds good… But then I buy some and I remember, they look better than they taste!
Jerry Seinfeld was the first comedian to perform standup on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon! Take a look at his set here!
Ah, love Jerry.
Sometimes when life is getting too hectic and I feel out of control and that I don’t have everything together and I am falling behind and I either want to cry or yell, hug or push someone, sit alone or be surrounded by people.
I put this on for a few minutes and it calms me down.
HOW CAN WE BE HAPPY ?
Once a group of 50 people was attending a seminar.
Suddenly the speaker stopped and decided to do a group activity. He started giving each one a balloon. Each one was asked to write his/her name on it using a marker pen. Then all the balloons were collected and put in another room.
Now these delegates were let in that room and asked to find the balloon which had their name written, within 5 minutes. Everyone was frantically searching for their name, colliding with each other, pushing around others and there was utter chaos.
At the end of 5 minutes no one could find their own balloon.
Now each one was asked to randomly collect a balloon and give it to the person whose name was written on it.
Within minutes everyone had their own balloon.
The speaker began— exactly this is happening in our lives. Everyone is frantically looking for happiness all around, not knowing where it is.
Our happiness lies in the happiness of other people. Give them their happiness; you will get your own happiness.
And this is the purpose of human life.
I really love this. It is my life.
