Sun Life Stanley International Dragon Boat Championships 2017

IMG_9749Today the Stanley International Dragon Boat Championships are being held. Stanley is a very beautiful bay in Hong Kong. We visit there often as Hannah ( the coffee addict) was born near there and both her parents ashes have been scattered on a hilltop overlooking the harbour. We have family members who paddle in the Stormy Dragons team so we have a partisan interest in the results.

Our name in lights

IMG_6995IMG_6968We wanted to preserve the memory of the old undertakers building that we redeveloped last year. As luck would have it London Signs had their workshop not far from our flat in Gipsy Hill. We commissioned this neon sign from them .  Visiting the workshop was a great experience as many of the signs they make are iconic all over Britain. It’s lovely to see craftsman created signs that are not digitally designed.

A coffee/style addict in Cheltenhan

Baker and GrazeIMG_9509Whilst working away from home, I’m always desperate to find the best coffee. At the moment, I’m based at Cheltenham General Hospital and having tried all the coffee shops within the hospital, I can confirm its all terrible. The stuff ‘palpitations’ are made with.

So whilst only given 30 minutes for lunch, I decided to check out Baker and Graze. It had the look outside of somewhere that cared about coffee and good food. They serve food, many types of chocolate brownies, also freshly baked bread. The brunch type servings looked delicious.

The ‘flat white’ was superb and gave me the hit required with no ill effects. Needless to say whilst working away, this will be my cafe of choice.
