Okay, at last I have reached the end of my quick review. It is 11th April 2019, so hopefully I can remember the last eleven days and write about them. In the meantime, I was busy knitting. I have a passion for intricate lacework, and this is the most complicated shawl I have made to… Read More

My neice’s husband was 50 in January, so off we went to near Southend to celebrate with him. Wife, Rachel, made the cake of course. The kids had fun. The adults had fun. A nice shot of Martin, Fiona and myself. Every month has its share of birds (for me, anyway) This was the month… Read More

The holiday got off to a good start when I found I had brought non-matching shoes. We always have our wedding anniversary abroad (But not this year – watch this space,) What… Read More
