I know I have not written for a while and I am not pleased with my inconsistent self . And it’s not like I don’t cook and think about the million things I would like to share and write about. Even though it’s summer, a time meant for leisure, sun and long lunches, it is actually very hectic. To spare you a long story, I am in the process of setting up our flat in Amman. It has been empty for 4 years and the space was starting to get to me. My sweet 96-year-old grand mother was taken ill to hospital and is still struggling to get better. The highlight of this summer is the week I managed to take off to spend with my friends in London. I have posted a few of my London favorite things …..and they really are a few as this is a city that I know and love too well.

    Wishing you lots of happiness as you set up your new home… it’s always good to have your camera and pen handy. No more food documentary?

    Hi Ishita No more documentaries for now:) The cost of making a documentary is actually very steep and tv channels don’t pay the cost. But never say never I guess:) Thanksx
