Enigma Escape Room

Enigma has been my third experience in the Room escape world and what an experience! Our objective this time was to get back the stolen virus and leave the building safe and sound but we couldn’t make it 😣 2 more minutes and maybe we could have achieved our goals. We were close enough! What…

Porto, a city of contrasts

  So, we went to visit my parents three weeks ago. They live in Zamora, a region in Spain very close to Portugal. For three days we left Biel with his grandparents and we visited Porto. I had heard it was an amazing trendy place. It was my first Portuguese experience, apart from Miranda do…

Biel’s second birthday: Indian pow wow party

Finally, the day has arrived. We have been less people than what I expected because of holidays and jobs and other circumstances but we have had some good fun pretending to be Native Americans: painting pebbles, shooting arrows, hiding in teepees, wearing feathers and riding horses. Biel has received awesome presents and lots of love…

Indian party invitations

I’m late but I have been on holidays to Portugal and I have just finished Biel’s party invitations. The party is going to be on the 17th of July and I still have so many things to prepare. I don’t think I’m gonna be able to do everything on my to-do list but I ‘ll…

How to create a dreamcatcher 

I keep on creating decorations for Biel’s second birthday party. With this last clue I guess there’s no doubt the theme for the party is INDIANS ( or Native Americans as they should be called, Columbus’ fault). I have to admit it was a little bit difficult to learn how to make dreamcatchers. I found…

Coloring books, no thanks!

It all started with the idea that adult coloring books were relaxing. The first time I saw this new hobby was at a museum in Oslo. The new garden was everywhere but it didn’t appeal to me at all. Now I’ve found out there are coloring books about everything and not only about mandalas and…

Elf and fairy garden

I love gardening (I like plants, flowers though I always kill them and getting my hands dirty) and if I can combine gardening with crafting, it sounds like the best idea in the world. I have been meaning to do this little garden for a while but I haven’t found the time until now that…

Últim avís

Today I’ve gone to my second escape room experience called “Last call” in Barcelona with my family. We had 3 main objectives which were: – guessing our holiday destination. – getting on a plane. – coming back safe and sound from our journey. It is a cool story and its decorations were amazing, especially the…

Hobbyhorse

I’m so very proud of the result of this project for Biel’s second birthday party. I am going to get as much as I can done since I don’t know if I’ll be working soon. It’s a recycling project made from old socks, broom sticks cut in halves, some wool, some felt and belts that…

The Affair: a brilliant romantic thriller

I’m in shock. I’ve just finished watching the Affair second season. I thought nothing could be better than LOST and the 3 first seasons of HOMELAND but it turns out that the AFFAIR gets very close to it in my opinion. It’s not only because my favorite actor is in it ( hopefully Joshua Jackson…

Soft Cactus

I’ve started preparing stuff for Biel’s second birthday. It’s in July but with the little free time I have – probably I’ll have still less if I begin teaching high schools next month – I think it’s clever not to wait any longer. I don’t know if I’ve said what the theme is going to…

Father’s day

At home we are a little bit against all these consumerist days that have been created only for people to spend money but, in the end, we like giving presents to each other. So, the challenge was to think about a present that didn’t cost a penny. I have recycled an old plastic frame and…
