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.

Hong Kong Style

#everydayinspiration Mido Cafe, Hong Kong

IMG_8414On a recent visit to Hong Kong we visited the Mido Cafe on Temple Street, Hong Kong. There is a fabulous blog page about it already that I shared a few moments ago.

You will read how great this place is, but for me the thrill was in its windows. Beautiful 1950’s Crittall windows. Made in my birthplace of Braintree, Essex, UK. More importantly, for this everyday inspiration post, I was inspired to tell my children how their grandparents met when they both worked at Crittalls Factory in Braintree .Until this moment I had completely forgotten my family link with the factory and even forgotten why I love Crittalls windows quite so much.
