Summer in Scotland and Stiffkey

Summer in Scotland and Stiffkey

August was filled with camping, walking, reading, swimming, and eating and drinking well with friends. We started with putting Charles on a flight to Bergen in Norway as soon as he had finished his school term in late July. In Bergen he embarked the tall ship ‘Maybe’, run and skipped by the same sailing company…

Alice’s graduation

Alice’s graduation

The highlight of July was a wonderful day spent in Liverpool for our eldest daughter Alice’s graduation ceremony at the University of Liverpool. She spent three fantastic years studying International Politics and Policy and enjoying all that this amazing city has to offer. The weather was perfect, the city full of buzz and champagne, celebrating…

Cottage garden update, university visits and a new baby Ray

Cottage garden update, university visits and a new baby Ray

The month of June saw some heavy rains and a lot of humid sunshine towards the end. Which resulted in quite a boost of growth in our new cottage garden bed. Now, we are not claiming to be anyway near gardeners yet, but we are quite excited! Buzz and I tend to have a little…

May in Provence and the Loire Valley (again!)

May in Provence and the Loire Valley (again!)

My very lucky husband spent three weeks in France in May. We had a ‘public’ tour to Provence at the beginning of May and then our happy gang of Texans arrived in the south of France for a ‘private’ tour consisting of 6 couples who travel together regularly. The fields of wild flowers against a…

New garden project

New garden project

After many years of living with our inherited plants, shrubs and ‘flower beds’ left from the previous owner, we decided we’d have a go at this gardening malarkey! We removed large and heavy palm-like exotic plants, a liner and all gravel on top and have planted a variety of white cottage garden plants. Tim and…

Rugby, rugby, rugby…

Charles and Eddie play for our local rugby club and this season has been successful for both their teams! Charles’s beaming smile (left) is the result of finally beating…

Falmouth visit

Falmouth visit

At February half term break Tim, Eddie and I visited Lily, our second daughter, at Falmouth in Cornwall where she is attending the Film School at Falmouth University. It was a great opportunity for Eddie to stay in halls with Lily and experience something of the student life. Lily was able to show him around…

The depths of winter and the big move

The depths of winter and the big move

A lot of my time in January was taken up by supporting my mother-in-law Lois, Tim’s mum. It became very clear that she could not continue living independently in sheltered housing. So plans very made, quite quickly, to move into a scheme called housing-with-care where she would be fully supported and have care available around…

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

I must say that the months of November and December were incredibly busy with school commitments and extra rugby training for the boys, planning and writing tours for 2019 and getting to grips with our new website. In mid-December my parents came to visit from Sweden which turned out to be a lovely lead-up to…

Barcelona, sisterly love and the start of the rugby season

October started with an exciting long weekend in Barcelona. I met up with my sister, flying in from Sweden, for a few days of sightseeing, relaxation and a proper sisterly catch-up. Whenever we meet it tends to be so busy, so it was lovely to spend some time together in this gorgeous city. We found…
