Ladies Take On….1980s Inspired Fondue Night!

We wouldn’t say we are domestic goddesses (well, Lady Sky might say she is) but we are all willing to have a go and have a laugh! We attempted a feat our parents once indulged in regularly – Fondue Nights! We thought we would revive the fondue night and have a little experiment as to how we could make a fondue feast (melted cheese and bread…what is not to love?) that was both edible and entertaining. Learn from our mishaps but also join in our laughter as we done some pinnies and get inspired by 1980s domesticity.

Supper in St Moritz…….

Drinks and nibbles in St Moritz, sadly not the Swiss Resort but as close as you’d come to it in an English country town. Located in Buxton and situated in the area known as Cavendish Circus, this adorable little restaurant transports you to a vintage alpine ski lodge. Continue reading “Supper in St Moritz…….”

Artisan Markets and Saturdays

Life can be a treasure trove of delights and such are those when you meet up with friends of yesteryear and stumble upon an Artisan Market in the shire. Buxton hosts an Artisan Market on the first saturday of every month and on this typically overcast British day the weather was mild and the market was a beehive of skilled tradespeople peddling their delightful confections. Put on by the Market Co (www.TheMarketCo.co.uk) this event was flourishing with local producers, award winning goods, authentic street food, entertainment, arts and crafts , fresh produce and lots and lots of homemade food to purchase.

Lady WordsmithDSC01734

Hello my lovelies! I am a transatlantic entertainment industry veteran who’s met the great and good of stage and screen (no I won’t spill any secrets…….. well maybe the odd one now and again). I adore being in a theatre, particularly the moment the house lights dim, anticipating the start of whatever performance is about to commence.

Lady Sky

Good Day, my name is Lady Sky, you can often find me six miles high and smiling. I love to travel and explore new places. Some call it curiosity, others nosiness. Either way I want to know what’s around the next corner, over the wall or behind the door marked private. I love all things luxurious (hence my passion for Art Deco design) but I’m not afraid of getting my hands dirty either.

Lady Metal

Lady Convivial (aka – Lady Viv)

I’m Lady Convivial, as the name suggests, I’m fond of feasting and the pleasures of jovial company. I love adventures and exploring off the beaten track, but I also like a little luxury so the untrodden path should have a nice hotel nearby!

The Lady has green fingers ………

In spring we decided to try and grow some produce, not being overly green fingered (as the remaining house plants can confirm) it was decided that tomatoes, onions, courgettes, peas and potatoes would be the crop of choice, mainly down to my desperate hope that even with some over enthusiasm and even blatant neglect they might survive and even produce a little something for the table.
