And Away We Go….

Earlier this week, I wrote a post about travel. I love to travel. I also love to plan trips. I’m very good at the planning bit. Typically, there are lists involved. Lots of them. I like lists. What I don’t like is packing. Once upon a time, in a time long before nappies, schedules and [Read On]

The Gallery: Have Bags, Will Travel

I love to travel. Love. It. At least, I did, when I was on my own…or with the Hubs. Then, we had babies. Traveling with babies can be like traversing the 6th level of hell, especially with babies that are slaves to routine. And, let’s face it, you can’t throw a handful of clothes in [Read On]

She Sure Looks Yummy

Travelling to Vienna and being without a proper Wi-Fi connection for nearly a week (I say proper because, theoretically, the hotel had one – it simply did NOT like my Macbook), I somewhat lost my blogging mojo. I am ever-so-determined to get back on track, as I have lovely photos and fun stories to recount. [Read On]

From the Other Side of the Lens

If you are like me, you are the adult person in the family who takes all the pictures. All. The. Pictures. You know what this means, right? Yes. You are never IN the pictures. I have this fear that when my kids are grown up, and I am pushing up daisies, they’ll be looking through [Read On]

Its been a shaky start to half-term hols.  This morning, I loaded up the rental van (who names a car brand a “Seat”, anyway?) with my parents, Boo and Pea (the Hubs stayed home to puppy-sit and work) and headed south-west to Pembrokeshire. Let me start by saying that travelling is a challenge when your [Read On]

Vintage Tractor and Steam Engine Rally

Last month, after flying from Chicago to London, and riding in the car for three hours, we thought, for some reason, that it would be a fantastic idea to go look at tractors and steam engines. I think I operated my camera in such a stupor that I forgot we even went, hence the delay. [Read On]

An afternoon at the Castle

Indulge my while I post a bunch of pictures (after all, its my blog, and I’m gonna post them.) Not much witty writing at the moment. One recent Sunday afternoon showed forecasts of warmer weather and sunny skies, so we hopped in the car and headed to Hampton Court. Its a lovely castle and gardens, [Read On]
