Holiday: 35 (blue plaques 29,30 & 31)

OH and I had a wander by tube to Ealing Broadway. After a spot of lunch we headed off to our first blue plaque of the day at Ealing Studios. Pokemon says Ealing Studios is famous for the Monty Python films. Pokemon knows nothing. Home to the greatest British comedies, more like. So I grant […]

Holiday: 34

Today sees us travelling back from Wales to my Outlaws. OH is currently driving, so I have time to surf some blogs and put thumb to keypad. We left cats in bad mood (they’d been de-flead), Dad as well as can be expected, and Mum itching to get back in the kitchen – no doubt […]

Holiday: 33

Mother is delighted with her knives. Not that she’s been able to use them. OH has commandeered the kitchen for the duration of our stay. Still she likes them.. though who in their right mind pays THAT much for knives… You can tell the return to school is soon. I’ve had to buy new shoes […]

Holiday: 32

Yesterday proved to be a day of laughs as OH and I caught up with old friends, explored the maritime museum in Porthmadog, and had a decent lunch in one of our favourite cafes. It was also a chance for Lankey to meet Llechi in the cloth. After seeing them off on the steam train, […]

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 26

Was a day out to Rhyl I remember it fondly as a place wherr cars crawled in queues for miles to get into. Alas no more. Since the Sunlife Centre’s demise, the place was empty. Rolling sandy beaches devoid of life stretched for miles. There were seagulls and starlings and a few hardy tourists braving […]

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 […]
