Term 7 Week 2

Another full week with jobs crossed of a list that keeps getting added to! Last Saturday we visited Kevin’s Nan as she celebrated her 98th birthday. The youngest family member was there too, and good to catch up. When we got home Georgina had cut back the ivy that has been covering the wall near…

Term 7 week 1

School broke up last Friday, a time of reflection, goodbyes and realising that another academic year has passed. It’s been a very full year with many a tale to tell, but I will save those for another time 😉 These last few weeks have been so full and fraught too, so Term 7, the six…

2019 part 1

Six months in to 2019 and it’s been full of ups, downs, sadness and joy, with memories made. It didn’t get off to the best start, but with some fortuitous twists we were able to join up with Andrew and Lis in Italy. Totally unexpected and all the sweeter for it! We met up in…

In your corner

I’ve had an incredible day today watching the last match in this year’s 6 nations. England were trouncing Scotland almost keeping the score the same as the minutes played tally. I don’t know what Gregor said at half time, or what they said to themselves, but it worked! Suffice to say England scored in the…

2018

A year full of so many things all written about in previous blogs. So many challenges, some wonderful moments, and some scary. What will 2019 hold? Opportunities will present themselves, be taken, enjoyed and faced with love and enthusiasm! That’s it for now-short but sweet. Xxxx

OH 60 Day 7

Last treat for Kevin a meal with friends at Dalloway Terrace in London. As I was also to be in London on Saturday morning, I booked a hotel for the night too! We left Billericay at 3:00pm and we were on our way. We checked in and got ready, although the precipitation was a slight…

Do you fancy an Indian?

Thursday saw Debbie and I leave Essex for a long drive to Cardiff. We arrived at our hotel, best described as functional, a bed for the next two nights. A curry was consumed before a night in a room that had air conditioning , albeit not switched on! The following morning and brunch was had…

Half term and 5/12 of 2018

This week has been full of work and play in equal measure. Monday was a lazy day, before a lovely roast dinner with Georgina and Jay. Tuesday, and a trip to work, busy with lots of walking. A trip to Bill’s and the cinema provided a catch up and plans for July. Wednesday and work…

Strictly Amazing!

Yesterday Debbie and I went to London to see the Musical Strictly Ballroom, a stage version of Baz Luhrmann’s film-we we’re not disappointed! I left work at a sensible time and we drove to shenfield. We travelled to London Bridge and walked along the south bank, bathed in spring sunshine, always a pleasure We passed…

A wonderful day!

What a wonderful day today has been, cousins, sisters, parents, brothers, friends and just everyone who came today! I cannot express my joy today which more than once overwhelmed me! It was amazing, the joy was palpable and I just loved it! Life is made for moments like this and everything was tip top! Some…

The first of three weddings in 2018

Yesterday we attended the first of three weddings we have in 2018. Kevin and I made our way to Royston and checked into our hotel to change into our finery! I took three outfits and two pair of tights, both which ran as soon as I carefully put them on, resulting in a bare legged…

A trip to the City

Today I travelled up to London on a beautiful sunny day to a reunion of a few from the Bank that I used to work at. The bank closed in 1990 but my memories of working there are so fond. Wonderful people, and I met Kevin there with a job I loved. I know there…
