Holiday: 31

Let me start by saying Porthmadog is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Currently awaiting the arrival of friends, this is the view from the window of the lovely spooners cafe. No idea where today’s adventure will take us. It will certainly involve laughter and with luck it may involve trains

Holiday 28 & 29

There is a lot to commend Wales. It is a brilliant full of amazing scenery and friendly people. It recharges my batteries and allows me to write. The book is coming a pace; so much so that I am back at handwriting stage. It also has one huge failing. It’s internet provision is woeful. At […]

Holiday 27

Was a day of writing. Progress is slow but steady. Chapters 16 and 17 are sorted with a load of back filling sentences seeded into previous chapters. Aim today are chapters 18 – 20.

Holiday: 25

Having arrived back from Prague, and after a stop for breakfast, we decided to head to see my parents in the land of Wales and appalling internet. BT have been promising them an upgrade since the end of June. Now mid August, it still hasn’t materialised. A list of never ending excuses falls into father’s […]

Holiday: 24b

Boarding at Prague was interesting. A mix of chaos and order. Priority boarding existed but there was no lane cordoned off, leading to a lot of confusion and a situation resembling a bad scrum; or the first day of school The view from my window as we awaited take off was reminiscent of the scifi […]

Holiday: 23 & 24

Yesterday we went to visit the boat builders. It was quite clearly a macho culture, presenting a very heterosexual view of the world. Walls adorned with scantily clad ladies in interesting poses, and those who left even less to the imagination, who surely would catch their death of cold caught the eye immediately. It was […]
