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 […]
To not be able to see a BBC commercially funded web site unless you are abroad seems really odd. If I was pitching my site and said i was going to exclude 60 million people as they lived in the UK and therefore were not international i’d be shot down in flames by the investor. Especially when the site is in English!
Not sure what it is about train journeys that make them so amazing, I even don’t mind commuting by train. The key to a successful train journey is a good seat, who you are with and what you are looking at out the window. There is something amazing about being able to get on something that can can take you 100’s of miles without having to queue and go through security or drive it yourself. I guess if i could my preference would be to walk but it would take me forever, so this is the next best thing. So with this in mind i have travelled where i can by train and these are my favourite train journeys to date.
Burgh Island is like something out of an Agatha Christie novel and is in fact true. We stayed there for a night and it seems a throwback to a different age. It was a bolt hole for the rich and famous during the 1930’s, with the likes of Noel Coward being a notable guest. We […]
My family lives on what can only be one of the best coastlines in England if not Europe, the Dorset coastline. To be more precise around Poole and Bournemouth. You can get here by train and is around 2 hours from London. The Sandbanks peninsula is one of the most expensive areas to live in […]
I don’t think this will happen in my lifetime but this is the number 1 experience on the bucket list, visit space. This is the ultimate getting away from it all and a way of changing perspective on life. I thought i’d have a look around and see if there were any ways i could do […]
I’ve finally visited many of the childhood places I always wanted to see and have never really thought about where next. So this is it, this is me pen to paper with a series of places to see before i die. The historic location. Bagan, Myanmar. My friends recently went here as part of their […]
Over the last few years i have really stepped up and visited many the places I have always wanted to see. I can’t say any of these are original but they have all delighted in some way. Below were the key places i have always wanted to visit and have over the last ten years. Every blog needs a bucket list post doesn’t it? But a done one?
