Whilst checking the latest trends in a rather more upmarket magazine than I usually read, I was struck by the number of adverts that had young models with extremely slim arms sporting unwieldy and heavy looking watches. Two or three of the items looked almost identical to the very nice but rather heavy watch I […]

It is most interesting to listen to a group of older folk discussing memories of their family Christmas and new year festivies. I belong to a social group who have all lived in the immediate locality for most of their lives. Most went to school together so they have really only ever known the little […]
This can be a very trying time of year . .. . early winter, or autumn as we used to know it. The weather is not particularly good just now, lots of rain and high winds. This tends to put folk off going out and particularly to the shopping centres so there is another blip […]

I have to say that my family have never been very adventurous travellers. We tended to […]

I have been on my travels recently and because I booked my tickets via broker, got a particularly good deal on my return trip to Texas. It involved more than just two direct flights but I figured that the odd stop over would make for more interest. The outward flight was from T5, and did […]
Knowing how to get the most from a foreign holiday is a subject close to my heart. A few years ago my immediate family only ever had caravanning holidays in this country – my partner was of the opinion that it was a great waste of scarce resources and time to be taking ferries or […]
