A few words with author & illustrator Steve Antony on his passion for The Queen & his work

Nov 30 2016

The first time I saw a book by Steve Antony was The Queen’s Hat at the National Gallery’s shop. I totally fell in love with all his picture books and sense of humour. Just read this interview with Steve to understand why I love him so much. Ah, by the way my 10 year old son Diego also loves his books. With themes ranging from the Queen to ‘saying please’ to the futility of war, Steve Antony’s picture books are must haves in every personal library. Steve has just published a lovely Christmas book, The Queen’s present. It’s most certainly my favorite Christmas book this year.

Christmas Gifts ideas: 60% off deals on Shows Tickets and Attractions

Nov 25 2016

Forget about Black Friday deals… They are often not authentic. London Mums magazine has a dedicated site with 60% off deals on theatre and London attractions throughout the year. This year for Christmas I will ask Santa to bring me vouchers or tickets to either a West End Show or to a nice London Attraction.

We all have houses packed with stuff we don’t need and I feel that we generally have too much of everything. So I have set up a page with the best deals in town. See if you find something you like too. Here are a few suggestions for you but on the main site you can find a lot more that might appeal more to your taste.

Scuba Diving in London

Nov 25 2016

Scuba diving in London? Seriously? I love the sea and snorkelling. Time flies while watching colourful fishes passing by. I have travelled to Egypt, Mexico, Cuba and the Dominican Republic a few times to do it but I never really tried SCUBA diving because I fear my reaction in front of big fishes like sharks. I am right about it as last Summer at an Amazon party I tried  the ‘diving with the sharks‘ virtual reality experience with Playstation and I almost destroyed the goggles when I saw the shark coming towards me. It felt so real and scary.
