Game, Set and Mistral Match

            Wimbledon is synonymous with strawberries and cream (166,055 portions eaten) but this isn’t all that is consumed during the event, other food include: … loosen your belts …                                                         During the tournament, 54,250 tennis balls are used.

A Game of Mistral musings and a little bit of Summer sale madness

Note – No Spoilers for those that haven’t seen all of the seasons yet…. So it’s been just over a month since Game of Thrones ended and some of us at Head Office have started to get withdrawal symptoms. …I know there’s potentially four camps regarding GOT (or maybe more)? 1) Those who have watched it since the beginning, week in week out. 2) Those who have never watched it and never intend to. 3) Those who like me waited until Christmas last year and binge watched it until the...

Travel light with Mistral 06/06/2019

7 day holiday travel light challenge – are you up for it? 

Travel light with style So how does travelling really light make you feel? – Does it bring you out in a cold sweat? Is panic setting in? Or would it be a complete breeze for you? I am the sort of packer who always takes far too much (Yes, it would be nice to take eight pairs of shoes, one for every day of the week and another “just in case” but there just wouldn’t be space) so this year I have resolved to change my ways (palpitations have set in already) and...
