We left Netherthong around 9.30am having had a great time with Dave, Kate, Izzy and Rory - it was lovely to see them again. They had stayed with us in Bundanoon a couple of years ago and we had some good old natters, catching up! It was rather a dreary ... Read more >

Went to All Saints church, Netherthong (there's also an Upperthong!) this morning, for Parish Eucharist. Its a fairly plain church, but nice and airy and the service was pretty standard (although the sound system left something to be desired!). The people ... Read more >

Pouring with rain this morning, which was very disappointing considering the pimary school Fayre was to be held in the afternoon. However, it did brighten up in time for the 1pm start. Netherthong is a delightful village and an easy walk to the school.... Read more >

Happy Independence Day, those Americans amongst you! Today we said goodbye to Barbara and Ian, who have been wonderfully hospitable, but we will see them again before we go. Sam's car wouldn't start, which caused a bit of a glitch, but Ron managed to ... Read more >

Today we went to Sherwood Forest, home of Robin Hood and his Merrie Men! First of all we walked around an exhibition, rather in the fashion of the Christmas grottos that used to be so popular in England (and still are to some extent, apparently). A forest ... Read more >

Today we didn't travel quite so far from home, just around the corner in fact! Ian and Barbara's church were putting on their monthly coffee morning for the locals and we joined them for a cuppa. It's a lovely idea, which is designed to encourage non-... Read more >

To Chatsworth today with Barbara & Ian. On the way, we stopped at the Chatsworth Farm Shop - my goodness, what a seletion of goodies! The meat section was phenomenol, with such things as wild boar, venison, wild rabbit, pheasant, as well as the more ... Read more >

As Ian had to attend a meeting, we all went with him to Coventry, where he used to be Archdeacon of the Cathedral. We had never been there before and were really looking forward to seeing the city (which is the city furthest from the sea, in Britain).... Read more >

Our last day at Chris's but, as we intend to at least call in one more time, it wasn't too difficult to say goodbye. Before leaving, we joined her at her church, the United Reformed Church of Thornton Hough. A very interesting service, although rather ... Read more >

Today was Barbecue day and our last full day with Chris, although we hope to at least call in one more time before we head for home! We started fairly eary, with Chris and I preparing food whilst Ron and Gwyllem sorted out chairs and tables, a gazebo ... Read more >

Today was wet again (we're getting used to it!!) but not enough to keep us indoors. We had a wander around Neston, Chris's local market town and then drove to Greasby, on the Wirral Peninsula (Cheshire) to visit John, an old Police colleague of Ron's, ... Read more >

This morning dawned grey and dreary but, intrepid travellers that we are, we decided to go to the Lake District anyway. It had been a special place when we lived in England and we particularly remembered a visit there in 1970 with Paul and Chris, and ... Read more >

Today we finally managed to get back to Liverpool to visit both of the Cathedrals. Our first stop was the Anglican Cathedral – the newest and largest Gothic Anglican Cathedral in the world. It was designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott (a Catholic!) ... Read more >

What a day! We set off for North Wales around 9.30am, in Chris’s car. She set her sat-nav and off we went. The first part of the journey was fairly average and then the sat-nav decided to take us on an extremely scenic route – which was great, except ... Read more >
