The Secret book

I’m pretty sure all of you have heard of “The Secret”. And most of you have probably read it too. If you haven’t, then have a look at it here. I started reading it at the beginning of the year and I just loved it.

Is it Pancake Time Yet?


One of my favourite days of the year is definitely Shrove Tuesday. In Portugal, we celebrate it big. Normally we all fancy dress and go out partying. Torres Vedras is the place to be, and I have some good memories of spending Carnaval there.
