Back to real life

October 11th, 2013 · Comments Off · Life

Well the holiday in Egypt went well. I can’t belive it is all over and we are back to work – I suppose you could say I am in denial (geddit?). Sorry about that. Couldn’t resist it. Anyway, we had a great two weeks, bookended by two extremely dull Easyjet flights. I can live with […]

Normal service will be resumed…

September 18th, 2013 · Comments Off · Life

…in October. Jayne and I are off to Egypt tomorrow for our first holiday in two years and are obviously very excited about it. The only fly in the ointment is worrying about how the dogs will react to us not being around for so long. Frankie is house-, dog, and cat-sitting and Charlie will […]

Epic holiday reading fail

September 2nd, 2013 · 4 Comments · Life

The other day I started to prepare for our impending hoday by stocking up on some reading matter. Our last holiday was a bit of a disaster in that department: Jayne took one book, thinking it would last her but finished it after a couple of days. I thought I was better prepared with my […]

Crete Uncovered

September 29th, 2011 · Comments Off · Life

As teachers used to say “this is going to hurt me more than it hurts you”. I’m sure nobody wants to read all about my holidays, and I’m not sure I want to write about them but it needs to be done so I can move on, so here are a few thoughts about Crete, […]

Back to normality

September 26th, 2011 · Comments Off · Life

Well we are back from Crete and alomost ready to face normality again. Although the holiday was only a couple of weeks it has been a lot longer than that since everything has been normal here. Right up until we went away Jayne was still off work recovering, and before that of course she was […]

Holiday fever

September 7th, 2011 · 3 Comments · Life

I think I should take more holidays. If I did then I would not get so absurdly excited about it when I do go anywhere. As it is Jayne and I are practically stopping strangers in the street to tell them we are going away.

Bristol fashion

June 8th, 2010 · Comments Off · Life

Jayne and I were very impressed by Bristol at the weekend.  Although I had been there before it was a very long time ago and all I can really remember about it from then is the CLifton suspension bridge. I knew it was the home of Banksy, Concorde, Johnny Morris and Wallace and Grommit as […]

Unsolicited testimonial

June 7th, 2010 · Comments Off · Life

Jayne and I enjoyed a short break in Bristol.  More of that later, but for now I want to praise the hotel we stayed in – The Bristol Hotel. It is not cheap, in absolute terms, but for a two-night stay we were happy to fork out for a bit of comfort.   Having said that, […]

Home alone

August 23rd, 2009 · 1 Comment · Life

Right now I am rattling around the house on my own. Chas is still at work, Chrystal has gone out to a birthday barbecue and Jayne…  she is in Ireland at the moment, after which she will be going to Spain and France before returning home.  It is really strange.  Last week we had our […]

Small world indeed

August 19th, 2009 · Comments Off · Life

Chrystal is still in touch via the interwebs with some of the people we met in Tunisia in February.  Last night she was chatting to them and it turns out that some of them had just come back from Crete, where they were staying in the same resort and Jayne & I.   As it was […]
