We arrived on the Emerald Isle on Monday and are working our way around Continue reading “Gaelic Inspiration”
Happy Birthday, Dad. This is the second year I’ll be wishing he was still here to celebrate. Not a lot I can say, other than I miss him every single day.
The weekly catch up via Facetime, most of it spent with his iPad pointing up to the ceiling.
His regular visits here to Italy, watching him walk around the garden in his tartan slippers.

Which means lots of lists and hopefully ticks! Revision has to be finished this week and a spring cleaning plan. 13 days and counting…
Feeling Chuffed –
Got a great review for All Will Be Well and an article accepted for Motor Home Monthly…Yay!
The sun is peeking through the clouds this morning… spring must be on it’s way and Nell and I came across this amongst the debris this morning. Now onto sorting all the broken bamboo for burning. Simon is going to be one happy fire starter! Need to alert the authorities
