A Couple of Days R&R at Home

Came home this week, first time since leaving site in March. It’s so lovely to come back, the house welcome and cosy.  We have arranged to meet Chris, Laura and the boys before going back to site. We are collecting Harry and Jack from school later and going over to their house to have fun…

Last Day at Home

So it’s finally arrived, our last day before leaving for St David’s. The morning was spent cleaning the house from top to bottom and clearing out the fridge/freezer. The car is packed and Vera is bursting with bags and boxes. Even after 5 years this doesn’t get any easier.  It’s not like packing for a…

3 Days to Go & Chocolate Chip Cookies

Got the boys this afternoon after school so thought I would treat them by making some Chocolate Cookies which they both adore. However, after making one batch it became apparent very quickly that one batch wouldn’t suffice. As Mike got a taste of them….. The Recipe is one of Mary Berry’s from her ‘Mary Berry…

4 Days to Go…

Only 4 days left at home now. The days are really speeding past fast. We attended Harrys Honours Assembly this morning and we were so proud when he went up to claim his honours. Such a lovely idea, so different from when we were at school. The only time anyone said anything about you was…

Cut Work Practise

We should have started packing today, but we realised we had appointments to go to the dentist and hygienist before leaving home. So after we had cleaned and flossed our teeth to within an inch of our lives we went trembling to the dreaded dentist. Actually I don’t mind the dentist it is the hygienist…

Last Week at Home

Well, its finally here, our last week at home before going back to work for the season. Storm Doris has passed and we were lucky that we were able to stay indoors and not venture out. Apart from putting out the dustbins which subsequently flew down the road spilling all the contents everywhere. The whole road…

Flying without Wings..

Hello everyone, we have had a very busy couple of weeks. Things are ramping up again now, as it is nearly time to pack up the house and go down to St David’s for the season and work. When we went to Brighton, while Mike was working I took the opportunity to visit friends and family…
