Prague

Back in February M and I went to Prague for a few nights. I have meant to post about it, but every time I went to I got distracted. Anyway, it was a present from a friend for my 50th Birthday. Part of me didn't want to go as I just didn't want to leave... Continue Reading →

Short Jaunt…

For my 50th, my friend surprised me with a trip to Prague, she paid for a 4-star hotel bed and breakfast, transfers, flights and 20kg bag in the hold. I am not too sure if airlines about the world are as tight fisted as the UK ones, but Ryanair you have to pay for literally... Continue Reading →

6 weeks later…

I keep meaning to do a post, and then something comes up, and later I realise that I didn't do my post, and think I will do it now, but manage somehow to get myself sidetracked and BOOM! Forgot to post again. I do not know what is going on with me. So, forgive me... Continue Reading →

A walk in the park…

We decided to take the dogs to Lurgan Park for a wander around the 56-acre lake this morning. Originally owned Baron Lurgan aka The Brownlow Family is situated next to Brownlow House aka Lurgan Castle. Whilst it was a very pleasant walk, the ground was still saturated from the last three weeks of constant rain.... Continue Reading →

Trip To Ireland

The Ferry on the Mersey with Liverpool Anglican Cathedral in the background. It's fathers day, and we are aboard the good ship Mersey sailing to Ireland to see M's parents. The dogs are with us and are in the onboard kennels. They are not too happy, to be honest, but it is better there than... Continue Reading →

In Search Of Heathcliff

Yes, that one... Today we went to Penistone Hill in Yorkshire to do our Bronte walk. The sun was out, and although it is still winter here it was a glorious day with highs of 13c. I parked 1.4 miles away from the Bronte Parsonage and headed towards Bronte Bridge and Falls. I had not... Continue Reading →

A Taste of Japan

This morning we went on a little trip (with the dogs too) to have a taste of Japan. Although we did not physically go to Japan, we did go to the site of the International Garden Festival in Liverpool.  I remember as a kid, along with millions of others visiting the site in 1984.  It...

The Beast is Back…

I took delivery of my car yesterday, and not before time.  Just a week of not having it, and I did miss it.  The hire company Europcar were a right pain in the arse if I am honest.  My car was delivered to work, so as my insurance only covers me for my car, or... Continue Reading →

Calm Achieved…

Yesterday's chaos finally came to an end at 6pm when my hire car was delivered.  Not my first choice but I needed a large car, and this is what I got.  A Vauxhall Zafira Tourer SRI Turbo 7 Seater.  Enough room for us and the dogs and everything else we have with us when out... Continue Reading →
