I'm changing my blog name!

I am changing my blog name and moving it from Lorilee's London to Lorilee's adventures as I feel like I backed my self into a niche, by calling my blog Lorilee's London.I assumed that my readers came to my blog to read all about London and I was afraid they would be disappointed as I didn't write that much about London. 

Do I buy the Canon S120?

For a while now I have been thinking about buying the Canon S120

Viva Espania!

I went on holiday with my Dad in August to Malaga, Spain. We took the plane from Manchester airport. The skies were clear for the flight so no turbulence. YAY!

Trip to Brighton with my Brother

A few weeks ago my brother came to visit me in London as we were going for tea and cakes at Lady Dinah's - There will be a separate post on this shortly. He arrived on the Sunday and Lady Dinah's wasn't till Tuesday so I took him to Brighton for the day as he had never been and I think he liked it.

Canada Day!!

I planned my trip to Montreal when there were events happening like FĂȘte de la Saint-Jean-Baptiste and Canada day. I didn't get to see anything on FĂȘte de la Saint-Jean-Baptiste as it rained and rained and rained. 

However, the sun came out on Canada day and so did the crowds. We headed up to st Catherine and found a suitable spot to take pictures. I stood next to a very patriotic Canadian lady who seemed to be holding the largest Canadian flag I have ever seen. She swung it back and forth for the duration of the parade and I am pretty sure it went on for a good 2 hours.

I got Engaged!!! In Montreal

As I said on my previous post on part 2 of my Summer in Montreal - Day 7 had extra bits. Here is why - I got engaged! After 10 years. I haven't put any photos up of the ring, because frankly I can't make my mind up and don't know what kind of ring I want. I keep looking at other ladies rings and thinking that's nice or that's nice, but I haven't found one that has wowed me yet.

Where I have been this summer! Part Deux!

Hopefully you will have already read part 1 of this post here. If not then head there before reading on. 

Continuing with the days...

Day 6

 I went exploring and the area around where my boyfriend works and scenery is beautiful and French.

Where I have been this summer! Part 1

Inspired by seeing Emshelx posts on her recent (I mean happening now) trip to Montreal. I dug out my photo album/hard drive decided to write a post on my SUMMER trip to Montreal, I went in June for 2 weeks. 

First of all let me say summer in Montreal is much nicer than winter, but I guess that goes without saying. I visited Montreal for the first time in February - post found here. There is plenty of snow and you have to wrap up warm.
