ANGELS & DEMONS PREMIERS AT CASA BELLA

“The room was an atmospheric chamber of shadows and pools of light…One by one, the guests, albeit somewhat apprehensively, took their seats at the Lord Demon’s  table” Casa Bella’s Angels & Demons may have taken place a few weeks ago now but the unique impression that the evening left on my guests and I will, […]

SMALL TALK & YOU

SMALL TALK & YOU

“Apparently, weather, sports, pets and travel are the four most common topics of small talk which is something many of us struggle with, be it because words simply don’t come to us or we just don’t like making it.” So, yesterday saw a major milestone in the history of England & Wales; ‘same sex marriage’. Or as […]

THE END

THE END

“As much as I may resist it, I, like all of the other inhabitants of this earth, am governed by the laws of nature; I rise by the Sun and collapse  by the moon…something’s got to give” Hello? Are you there? Can you hear me? Wake up. Can hear it? The rhythm of your heart, […]

CASA BELLA’S CASINO IS A WINNER

CASA BELLA’S CASINO IS A WINNER

“I think the best thing about the evening (although it may not necessarily have seemed so at the time!) was the noisy, raucous behaviour of all our guests.” Well, hello there. Have you missed me? Of course you have… not only  have you missed your Sunday morning read but you’ve also been dying to hear […]

WHERE DID THEY COME FROM? POPULAR SAYINGS

WHERE DID THEY COME FROM? POPULAR SAYINGS

They’ve transcended time, passed from generation to generation, evolving  to become part of our every day conversation. But what exactly do old proverbs mean and where did they come from?  I’ve researched and compiled a list of  the most  widely believed origins. Well, good Sunday to you oh discerning reader.  There’s much happening this week and next, with […]

HALLOWEEN’S DARKER SIDE, ONE YEAR ON

HALLOWEEN’S DARKER SIDE, ONE YEAR ON

“…it’s the only time of year when they [parents] get to exhibit their creative flair for costume design whilst encouraging their children to go out, join a gang and terrorize the neighbourhood…” So the leaves have started to fall, there’s a definite chill in the air and that unmistakable scent of burning wood is a […]

Casa Bella’s Devil’s Dinner Party 2; the gifts and the curses

Casa Bella’s Devil’s Dinner Party 2; the gifts and the curses

So, here I am, a couple of days after the night before and what a night! I think I can safely say that Casa Bella’s Devil’s Dinner Party 2 turned out to be one of the ‘wildest’ dinner parties yet! I dare say that much of that was not helped by the introduction of a relatively new […]

Tis’ the Sunday of the week before the rebranding. Me? Terrifed?

Tis’ the Sunday of the week before the rebranding. Me? Terrifed?

Good morning, Sunday browsers. How are you all today? I hope you’re having a lovely relaxing Sunday, languishing in your bed. Now, I know no Sunday is complete without a post from a Different Angle about the rights and the wrongs of the world but, as you know, this author is busy preparing for a momentous event […]

Casa Bella’s HOIME Awards 2012 makes way for company relaunch

It’s been nearly a year since Casa Bella’s HOIME Awards. Wow, time really does fly! Casa Bella’s HOIME Awards 2012 will not take place this year because they are making way for another glitzy event; the rebrand of my company CGA Enterprise Solutions. The rebrand is long overdue since I acquired the company in January […]

Casa Bella’s wigs, laughter, trophies and murder

And so here we are, 2 days later (sounds like a film title doesn’t it). The balloons have been deflated, the posters taken down, the jewels stolen and Casa Bella’s dining room returned to its usual state in anticipation of tomorrow’s formal business meeting. Casa Bella’s first Murder Mystery is over so what was it like? When […]
