A new home for my ramblings

Goodbye Posterous, hello new home

movingHaving had three (sporadically posted to) spaces on Posterous I was encourage to amalgamate and re-home recently. The demise of Posterous meant I either waved goodbye to my previous ramblings or I found them a new home.

This is their new home. This time I’ve decided I’m not going to be dependent on another platform – this site has its own domain and is self-hosted so hopefully we won’t be needing to pack our bags again! Nothing Dangerous is where I’ll share bits of my travelling, the odd recipe and even the occasional political rant. Do feel free to join in the conversation!

Battenburg Cake

Today’s project was Battenburg from a recipe by Lorraine Pascale. As with all things it wasn’t as easy as it looked!I thought I had two loaf tins but couldn’t find the second one so the mixture went into a square tin with the hope that it wouldn’t…Continue Reading

Day trippers

It was time to leave the country. Across the hills, sneak over the border and visit Montenegro.Left at the crack of dawn. Well, 8.15 is early when you’re on holiday! One stop to collect a German couple from another hotel along the way and off to t…Continue Reading

It would drive you up the wall…

Ah sunshine, this is where you spend your summers!

Well, here we are, in the sun. That’s a novelty coming from Scotland!First impressions we had on the way in from the airport were of Greece. But as Croatia is just up the coast (OK, Montenegro in between) I suppose that geographically it would loo…Continue Reading

Off travelling again soon!

Nearly time to pack the cases for our next trip – this time to Dubrovnik in Croatia. Neither of us have been there before so lots of exploring to look forward to. I’ll be adding pics and stuff here as we go through the week (hotel free wifi permit…Continue Reading

Forth Road Bridge Open Day – 18 June 2011 – Part 2

Then back up onto the bridge to have a look at the north east pylon. Watching the joints sliding beneath your feet is a bit weird! As an added bonus HMS Illustrious was heading out for sea trials after her refit – what great timing! Back over on t…Continue Reading

Forth Road Bridge Open Day – 18 June 2011 – Part 1

It was wet. Very wet. Happily for the Forth Road Bridge crew there was a good turnout for their Open Day. We investigated the exhibition first of all – some fascinating stuff. The thing with bridges is that generally you just drive over them, mayb…Continue Reading

Part 3 of the Decorating Project

Making good progress now. The red in the bathroom is actually raspberry coloured not orange – probably the halogens doing that. I wouldn’t have that colour. Honest! Wallpaper going up in the sitting room is looking good! There will be a load of fi…Continue Reading

Decorating Project Part 2

Having tried the colour on the hall we had to see what it looks like in the kitchen – fabby!Continue Reading
