Learning to roll sushi

We’re off to learn how to make sushi like a pro.  We’ve signed up to the Yo-Sushi School and arrive at Brunswick Square ready and hungry.

Solomon is our teacher and he shows us how to create cucumber Maki with its lovely square shape, as well as California rolls…which involves flipping the nori over and hoping that your rice doesn’t fly off.

We spend nearly 2 hours creating our sushi, with Solomon being very patient and helpful along the way.  At the end of the course we opt to take ours home….there is so much of it!

You get to leave with a note book detailing the folding, rolling and rice squishing methods you need to do it all again at home.

Dedication

“Talent is cheap; dedication is expensive. It will cost you your life.”

Preparation

Planing is half the fun…sometimes.

Getting ready for our trip. This time we are organised, we have booked our hotels, our in country flights.  We have booked the car and tickets to events.

We’re making use of our loyalty points and programs.  Even I am impressed with our organisation skills.

Elf tip: We love Hotels.com – you collect nights from stays and these add up to free nights in lots of lovely locations.

 

We’re a month out from our trip so next on the list:

  • Travel insurance
  • Mowgli care arrangments
  • Cash conversions
  • Bug spray investments
  • GP appointment for medications and prescriptions

 

It pays to be ready and prepared.

 

Venom

We’re off to one of my favorite places, The Natural History Museum!  This time we are going to see the new Venom exhibition.

First of all, book tickets, the queue is something else entirely.  The size of it would strike fear in to the heart of even the most dedicated museum lover.  Luckily we have booked tickets, so with rather smug smiles we sidle past the massive line and straight in.

The exhibition, is beautifully put together, with lots of information and specimens as well as real life survival stories.  We spend a wonderfully morbid hour and a half perusing the fangs and barbs of snakes, jellyfish, spiders and all sorts of insects.

Get in before it closes, if you are a member it is free!

Goals

We are looking at the blank slate that is 2018 and making some plans and brainstorming some ideas for the year to come.

We’ve booked in a trip to Australia and to Hong Kong and are raring for that one.  We are making plans for a trip to Wales and possibly back to Edinburgh.

Also on the cards is a British Sign language course or many a French Class.  We are definitely signing up for a cooking course and have an adventure in Covent Garden planned.

But….we are on the look out for inspiration, what should we do?  Where should we go?  What are your favorites?

Making plans is full of excitement!
