Hitchin, where I have lived for over 10 years is located mid-point between London and Cambridge. It is a typical market town and I’ve written another blog post about what an amazing place it is to live. What is also has is great countryside and paths for running. These are some of the best in […]
Cat Cafes are straight of of Singapore via Japan and now London. Londons first was In the form of Dinahs Cat Emporium but there are now a few in London. We chose to visit the London Cat Village in Shoreditch. The concept is simple, drink tea and juice with cake and cats. Booking is easy and […]
If you are not watching Game of Thrones on TV then switch over immediately and start watching. It is a combination of history throughout the ages with Dragons and Zombie hordes added for extra spice. This is then set against the backdrop of gorgeous countryside and scenery. It may be of surprise then to learn that most of it is filmed in Northern Ireland. We decided to take a weekend break here in part to meet up with a friend who had recently moved back and was determined to get us to come and visit. It is a short flight from London, just over 1hr and so is a great Friday night to Sunday evening weekend trip.

To say that Lola has been with me through the best and worst times is a understatement. She became one of the most important and consistent things in my life and has been there when needed. She has always acted like more of a dog cat, a Lo-Dog. I say that in she was so friendly, liked belly rubs and always wanted to be with you when you were in the house. She’d follow you round and always sit with you, understanding when you were ill, happy or sad. She had a unique little face and silver tanned coat which meant she looked unique and not like other cats. I can’t imagine she won’t be here anymore. It might seem a little emotional for a cat but she was more than that to me and I hope everyone that met her. Rest in peace Lola Puff.
After a tough week with the death of a family pet we really needed to get away from it all but without travelling too far. From where we live in Hertfordshire we are blessed with great links both in to London and beyond. We choose a 2 hour car journey to the Suffolk coast and […]
