Left Sam’s around 11.30am to drive up to Parkgate in Cheshire. This was a special journey, to see someone we hadn’t seen since 1971. After an uneventful trip up several motorways, we reached Parkgate and, with great hugs (and wet eyes) we met ... Read more >

Today Sam, Ron and I decided to go to Kenilworth (scene of Sir Walter Scott's novel of the same name). This is a lovely, medieval town about half-an-hour's drive from Sam's. The castle was built for defence reasons originally, as it was close to th Welsh ... Read more >

Today we finally went to Oxford! It's not too far from Sam's and, although it was raining, we had a pleasant journey. After parking in the town centre we went to Oxford Castle, which has its origins in Saxon times (the tower is reputedly of Saxon origin).... Read more >

Today Sam had to take her car for a service prior to driving through Europe next week and after we had dropped her car off at the mechanic's it was a little too late to go to Oxford. We decided instead to go to Cadbury World, about 45 minutes drive away, ... Read more >

We left Allan and Dot's just before lunch, to travel down to Leamington to stay with Sam. Not a bad journey and, as we arrived early we had a wander around the town. Dot had supplied us with enough food to feed an army - they have been so generous. ... Read more >

After a lay-day yesterday we set off early with Allan and Dot to drive to the Lake District, which is about an hour’s drive from their home. Allan drove us in his new car, up the motorway and then along the country lanes. The “patchworks” (fields) ... Read more >

Left home about 8.15am to go to All Saints’ Church, Childwall (where we were married) for the 9am service. We had a very warm welcome from everyone and Malcolm, the Lay Reader, introduced us and asked us to stand up so everyone could see us! The ... Read more >

Decided to go to Chester with Allan and Dot – this is an old Roman town which still has the ruins of the Roman Gardens visible. We walked around the quaint, narrow streets, browsing in various shops and buying some bits and pieces. We were walking ... Read more >

Off down memory lane again. We drove to North Wales, not on the motorway but via the scenic route. First stop was a place called Rhydymwyn where, as children, we used to camp. Strangely enough, both Ron’s and my families holidayed there separately ... Read more >

As Allan and Dot had things to do today, we went off on our own to explore our old home town.   On our way to Huyton we had a look around Prescot cemetery and we managed to find, what we believe to be, Ron’s grandparents grave – it seems to be the ... Read more >

Another WOW day! Drove with Allan and Dot down to Cheltenham (about a two-hour drive), where Dot’s daughter Julie and her daughter Chantelle live.   We also met Mark, Julie’s friend, who works in Oman but who was on leave for a few days. After ... Read more >
