What a week! Elaine and I took mum home; she hadn’t been there since late June so we set priority on some tasks to complete. On Sunday we made a list and worked our way through during the week. We saw family, neighbours, enjoyed good food, and crossed things off the list. The priest whoContinue reading “Scotland the Brave”

Yesterday was my last day at work. A weird situation, with no office, laptop, phone or computer at my disposal, but it was a good day nonetheless. The last six weeks without students and staff, have given me the time to process retirement and to reflect on my achievements during my sixteen year tenure. IContinue reading “Yay! Retired!”
It’s not what we have, but who we have in our lives that matter…….
Yesterday we enjoyed a wonderful afternoon with our niece, nephew and their son, great to chat, laugh and enjoy time together. Joe was here for a short while and Nina for longer and I was grateful that they were with us. Just after they left Nina came downstairs to say that Caroline Flack had died.Continue reading “It’s not what we have, but who we have in our lives that matter…….”

Last Saturday Nina and I enjoyed a massage, another day at the pool relaxing, enjoying the knee popping DJ ‘s tunes and just after the setContinue reading “There’s no place like home…..”

Six become four
Today Andrew and Lis were to leave us to go home, but before that, Andrew and I completed the HI parkrun. We were cheered around the 2 lap route by the rest of the family. It was my first as a ‘tourist’ and what a place to do it. We went for breakfast after ourContinue reading “Six become four”
Sunrise to Sunset
An early start to catch the sunrise, another stunner. We made our way to the beach 🏖 to kayak! Me , Kevin and Georgina went in one, and with a little help we were off. Have to say not terribly comfortable so we went back to the shoreline to move seats. This proved hilarious asContinue reading “Sunrise to Sunset”
