Happy birthday Di! We Skyped her this morning and it was great to talk with her on this special day. Unfortunately, Di, Liam and Hayley are all suffering from the 'flu and so were rather hoarse, particularly Liam! Lots of love to them and our prayers ... Read more >

Raining again! Never mind - we're used to it now. John and Denise suggested a day in nearby St Albans and that sounded good to us. Before we left, Becca's friend Alex called in - as mentioned the other day, they had stayed with us in Oz a couple of years ... Read more >

Off to Cambridge today! We left just after 10am in John's car, driven by Denise. Our first stop was Grantchester, where we stopped at the Red Lion pub for a cup of coffee. There was a riotous group on the tables next to us - some very cockney accents! ... Read more >

Happy birthday horses! (In Australia, anyway). After having stripped our bed and packed our things, we set out from Netherthong around 11.30am to go to Harpenden. John and Denise had visited us in Australia and we were really looking forward to catching ... Read more >

Sam and Jeremy had left, so we had the day to ourselves. In the morning we went for a proper look around Holmfirth and (of course) it poured with rain! Nevertheless, we visited quite a few gift shops and unfortunately(!) found an Edinburgh Woollen Mill, ... Read more >

First of all, our love to Violeta (our friend in Bundanoon) and Jeanette, Jeremy's mum, both of whom have just had their gall bladders removed - we hope you're both feeling much, much better now! Today we went into Leeds, to the Royal Armouries Museum.... Read more >

We left early today, for our much anticipated trip to York. The first part of the journey was picturesque and then, of course, we ended up on a motorway! Not too bad and we'd been advised not to drive right into York but to park at the Park and Ride ... Read more >

Today we decided to have a Sunday drive - years ago, it was The Thing to Do on a Sunday afternoon, so we decided to revive the tradition. We drove from Netherthong to the Peak District, in Derbyshire - home to some of the most incredible views we've ... Read more >

On this day, in Netherthong, West Yorkshire, nothing happened! We deliberately set today aside as a lay day in order to catch our breath, for me to do a bit of laundry and for Ron to mow the lawn! Dave had been quite busy in the days leading up to their ... Read more >
