January 26th – New passport

My new passport arrived this morning (not that I’ll be using it anytime soon), but at least it’s here, as the old one would have expired in August 21. Obviously, it is different from the old EU one, but you’ll be pleased to know that the photo in it is as hideous as most people’sContinue reading “January 26th – New passport”

October 23rd – who ate the map???

Our photo book arrived today and it got us talking about our next adventure. I decided to go and get the map of Europe to float some ideas, and went to a page showing part of France to discover one of the 4 legged children had decided to eat it….. Hopefully our friends at AmazonContinue reading “October 23rd – who ate the map???”

October 15th – Autumn day….

A fantastic afternoon on the golf course with 3 mates in the autumn sunshine. Well my golf wasn’t fantastic, but the scenery was. The trees are definitely turning colour and leaves falling, making it difficult to find balls that have strayed off the fairway. Because of changes in the length of daylight and changes in temperature, leaves stop their food-makingContinue reading “October 15th – Autumn day….”

October 4th – Wet days

The weather in the UK has been dire over the last few days, but thankfully I always have 2 ‘to-do’ lists on the go, one for inside and one for outside, which keeps me busy and distracted from the gloom wet days. One of the current indoor projects is the creation of a photo bookContinue reading “October 4th – Wet days”

August 31st – Fungi

An amazing Fungi seen on a tree whilst playing golf this afternoon. I am pretty sure it is a bracket fungi, but there are so many different types. Bracket fungi feed on wood, either as living trees or dead logs, and the brackets are their fruiting bodies. These form shelf-like structures singly or in groupsContinue reading “August 31st – Fungi”

August 25th – RNLI

We took the 4 legged children down to Cornwall for a few days, to see their Cornish cousins and owner. A trip in Dizzy (our motorhome) wouldn’t be normal unless we had some wild weather, and today was no exception thanks to storm Francis. This mean’t the furry friends needed to stay out of theContinue reading “August 25th – RNLI”

July 27th – Double rainbow

The weather was a little unpredictable when we played golf this afternoon, and got caught by a shower or 2 but it could have been worse and we did get to experience a double rainbow. Many believe, from a spiritual perspective, that a double rainbow is all about new beginnings and transformations. Apparently, when aContinue reading “July 27th – Double rainbow”

July 7th – Au Revoir

Today’s picture, is of our dear friends Clive and Sarah, who have been our drive guests for a few weeks due to their year long trip, being put on hold due to the Corona Virus out-break, and having rented out their house. Thanks to travel restrictions being lifted, they are on their way again. WeContinue reading “July 7th – Au Revoir”

June 30th – look back or forward?

Well, I like to do both. The picture today is of our calendar. Each year I create a calendar which has photos of a year ago in that month. As we hit 100 days in lockdown (in the UK), and say goodbye to June, I reflect on last year’s trip to Scotland from the calendarContinue reading “June 30th – look back or forward?”
