My Sunday photo – a hug in a mug

  This weekend has been a bit of a wash out in all senses of the word! We’d been really looking forward to going to the Enchanted Woodland at Syon Park and to meet head gardener Topher Martyn, but ended having to cancel as it was pouring with rain. It wouldn’t normally have stopped us but poor Little Button has come down with a streaming cold. Ekk…. cue broken sleep,…

  I have the best memories of fireworks night at Alexandra Palace all those years ago when it was a free event. Crisp cool clear nights, an exciting buzz and the thrill that only a vivid shock of fireworks across the cityscape can give you.

Our best holiday ever!

  It’s that time of year when I start thinking about our holidays for next year. I always do. Because as soon as the chilly weather sets in, all I have on my mind is the sunshine and looking for the best possible places to go seek it. There’s something so delicious about soaking it all up.
