A Postcard from New York!

Hello, This week has been about making the most of Ellie being home before she goes back to  university this weekend. It has also been Evie’s first full week back at school, so we are slowly getting back into the swing of things. I wanted to share five of my favourite pictures that I took in New York, before things get so hectic that I forget to do it. After much procrastinating, I.. Read More

Let summer begin!

Hi Ellie, How are you surviving the heat wave in New York? I understand it is called the summer dome, I hope you have not lost too many campers to the local hospital this week. This is the last Five On Friday for the summer, that means that we will see you in four weeks – yikes. It has been a good week on the Glade with lots to report, so I will.. Read More

Five on Friday!

Dear Ellie, I am going to go straight into my Five on Friday for this week…….. One Our bedroom, in particular our bed, I spent most of Sunday, all of Monday and most of Tuesday in it this week. I have had some sort of throat virus type bug thing and been wiped out. Therefore, this week’s five is a wee bit scant I am afraid. Two Auntie Mandy and I went to see Ab.. Read More

Five on Friday!

Dear Ellie, It is Friday, thank goodness! But what a week! We have a new Prime Minister and she has already moved into Downing Street. It is Theresa May, do you remember when we used to talk about her shoes? I don’t think I share her politics but wish her the best of luck! The weather remains changeable although veering more towards wet and cold! Oh well, there have been some highlights, here are.. Read More

Keep Calm and Carry On!

So we have come to the end of a very unsettling week. It feels as though the country is rudderless as the politicians fight it out between themselves. Ironically, today marks the 100th Anniversary of the beginning of the Battle of the Somme. So many men died so that we could ultimately live in a free world, where democracy is paramount – I wonder what they would make of the current situation. Anyway.. Read More

So it really is Friday again already – don’t get me wrong, I am glad to see it, but it does feel like this week has flown by. I usually always steer away from political comment, but in these uncertain times, I have to say – I cannot imagine a world with Boris Johnson in Downing Street and Donald Trump in the White House! So  from a very un-united part of the world,.. Read More

My Random Five!

3

Hello, Given that I have been missing for a little while, my five this week are a random selection of what we have been up to in the interim. One In April we went to Edinburgh to celebrate Himself’s birthday. As predicted, I packed all the wrong clothes and shivered my way through the weekend. Do not be fooled by the beautiful blue sky, it was bitterly cold. Despite the snow (yes really),.. Read More

Five on Friday – Paris!

I am more pleased than usual to see Friday this week. For a number of reasons it has been a very strange week for me, but lets not dwell on that! I am continuing my Paris update for my Five on Friday this week because with the exception of Disney on Ice, I have not taken any other photographs. One Our hotel was very near to the Eiffel Tower and we loved being.. Read More

Arc de Triomphe

This week has been full of curve balls for me  so I have not taken any pictures. However, I did take a hundreds on our recent weekend in Paris. Don’t worry I will not bore you with them all ha! But one of the most interesting sites for me was the trip up the Arc De Triomphe. We have been to Paris many times before. Here is a picture of the girls in 2005 with.. Read More

Five on Friday – The Belfast Edition

3

Yeah its Five on Friday time again! I am especially glad to greet this weekend. It has been a tough work week and,  it will be nice to catch up at home after last weekend’s adventures in Paris. But this week’s five are from our earlier trip to Belfast. Myself and the two girls took a quick trip to Belfast in the middle of February because the eldest needed to apply for her.. Read More
