For a while now, the wanderlust has been rumbling in the background. It’s starting to get a little too loud now… The grass is always greener, I am more aware of that after living in Canada for a few years, but, the world is too large and interesting a place to hang around for too […]
More strawberries & the first garlic bulb…. Potatoes to come soon, pears are ripening on the tree and the tomato plants are starting to take off. All in all, a good year so far.
Sea fishing, never done it, but I thought it time to have a go, after my old man was over for a visit and came with a sea bass he had caught, which was delicious. Needless to say, I caught bugger all, it was bit rough, so it was more a trial run and casting […]
It was a fine evening for some fire twirling, a few beers or 3 and some great music…. Despite what many would have you believe, the UK isn’t all bad. As the summer finally arrives, beer gardens are as tempting as they ever were. Turn the telly off, call a friend and go visit one.

A drive and a wander, the order of the day, on a glorious sunny Sunday afternoon….

And on the way home, we took some previously uncharted roads by us, through the countryside. […]
For the car wash and golf courses, but not a drop from a hose, for the veggie garden…. How the hell is it not OK for me to water my veggie garden using the hose, which would be a fraction of the amount used by this car wash alone, not to mention the golf courses, […]
Just taken a peek and seen the last post was Dec 23rd. And it’s now Feb! Crikey…. Very slack. We’re still in the UK for now, having set up our HQ Command Centre for a few months, whilst we wait for the next pathway of our fate to present itelf. Other than that, all quiet, […]
