A couple of weeks ago, we decided to go for a little weekend escapade to Oxford *a great way to break the routine!*. I had never ever been there before I as a huge Tolkien fan, I definitely had this English city in my bucket list. Also, there is so much hype about the Oxford University that I needed to see it with my own eyes!
We travelled by train to Birmingham and stayed in the Brummie speaking city for a couple of days. Then travelled to Oxford, however this post is to highlight some of the things we did and discovered in Birmingham!
Nobody knows the origin of scones. The only certain fact is that the first printing reference to them is from a Scottish poet from 1513. There are people that say that scones were named after the Stone of Destiny, where all Scottish kings have been crowned. Others think that scone refers to the Gaelic word sgonn (meaning a shapeless mass).
Sometimes human relationships are tough and when it comes to love, it’s no different. Finding the right person is incredibly hard but you cannot just relax once it happens: connexions need to be nurtured to survive the routine and the passing of time. Personally, I have not always paid so much attention to my significant other as I tend to focus on “what’s next” and put my energy towards career goals, learning new skills or just whatever new obsession I am going through at the time *hello drumming classes or English anthropologists!*
