Ah these days with the exit from europe making a very jerky but sure way through, it seems odd to be constantly looking for our next holiday in the sun. This used to be always somewhere like the Costa Brava or Costa del Sol areas. Benidorm or Ibiza, Majorca etc. were the places to be […]

When we need to step on it and get a move on, the temptation to cut corners can be immense. For example, I set myself a target to use supermarkets far less and to walk to the stores, using my handy wheeled trolley. I do this very often, it is wonderfully therapeutic, allowing me to […]
There is definitely something special about the arrival of spring time. However overdue or reluctant it feels at the time. We don an air of fun and expectation ourselves – things have to be brighter than the winter offered, surely?! This winter in particular has been seriously grim with unbelievably poor weather conditiond throughout most […]

Boy it’s been a hard winter to date – as far as weather is concerned anyway. We’ve had the lot. Torrential rain for weeks, giving way to fog, into sleet and snow.

There was an indoor market unlike anything I’ve visited before – all kinds of stalls selling everything from smart and practical […]

Of course, not everyone celebrates with gifts, so that side doesn’thave to be too painful. so starting with the […]
