Arrived home yesterday to a very happy Bella and still lively kittens.
I apologise in advance - this is a photo heavy blog post!
As I mentioned Gamescom is huge, this is just one of the halls
with the boys walking down it, the screens are gigantic!
And this is what geeky boys do....(and yes this mum did too!)
When all that gaming is over we rewarded ourselves with cocktails...
We fitted in some sightseeing...
this is one of the bridges in Cologne where couples place a padlock and throw the
key into The Rhine (I know they do this in Paris too) such a nice idea although we were
told the bridge is collapsing under the weight so occasionally they have to cut a lot of the
We found our way to the Lindt Chocolate Museum - well, silly to miss that.
An incredible chocolate fountain and yes we sampled the chocolate..quite a lot of it
truth be told (diet starts soon!)
And we did some shopping - yes a C&A
(my very first job was in C&A so it was nice to see one again).
Across the road from our rather plush hotel (this is the view from the lift lobby)
was a music festival going on, lots of different food and drink stands.
I contemplated whether one of these would be a suitable wine glass for home!
And then we discovered chimney cakes, a dough rolled and wound onto a sort of wooden
mould/rolling pin and cooked over a fire.
They are then dipped in a choice of sugar, nuts, seeds, cinnamon - and delicious!
So I think that is enough photos if you've reached this far :)
Suffice to say it was a brilliant trip.
A little announcement now...
Please still feel free to order from the website and any enquiries do not hestitate

Tuesday Tip/Technique will be back next week,
this jaunt to Germany has thrown me out of sync a little!
Take care friends.
