Tying the proverbial knot

On Thursday Kevin and I began our journey up to Scotland for a family wedding on Saturday. We drove to Suffolk to a mirror restorer to see what could be done with my grandparents chip shop mirror. A bit of a detour but provided great scenery and a lovely lunch. Next up the drive to…

Rail Mail

A few weeks ago my cousin Jo put on Facebook about the Postal museum, a ride underground from Mount Pleasant in a train that transferred the post around London. It seemed like fun so we booked and lunch at Madison’s arranged. Kevin and I left our hotel and had breakfast and we met Shirley and…

OH 60 Day 7

Last treat for Kevin a meal with friends at Dalloway Terrace in London. As I was also to be in London on Saturday morning, I booked a hotel for the night too! We left Billericay at 3:00pm and we were on our way. We checked in and got ready, although the precipitation was a slight…

Do you fancy an Indian?

Thursday saw Debbie and I leave Essex for a long drive to Cardiff. We arrived at our hotel, best described as functional, a bed for the next two nights. A curry was consumed before a night in a room that had air conditioning , albeit not switched on! The following morning and brunch was had…

Half term and 5/12 of 2018

This week has been full of work and play in equal measure. Monday was a lazy day, before a lovely roast dinner with Georgina and Jay. Tuesday, and a trip to work, busy with lots of walking. A trip to Bill’s and the cinema provided a catch up and plans for July. Wednesday and work…

A weekend of cricket,sun and a Brucie Bonus!

Way back I put in to the ballot for the Lord’s test England v Pakistan and was successful for yesterday. The first two days went Pakistan’s way but we hoped to see England make a better fist of playing against the young, talented Pakistan side. Now that is as deep as I will probably be!…

Strictly Amazing!

Yesterday Debbie and I went to London to see the Musical Strictly Ballroom, a stage version of Baz Luhrmann’s film-we we’re not disappointed! I left work at a sensible time and we drove to shenfield. We travelled to London Bridge and walked along the south bank, bathed in spring sunshine, always a pleasure We passed…

A London Wedding

Now this is a strange one: I’m blogging about a place I’ve not been to, with some people I have rarely met, but hopefully they can look on this as my wedding gift! Andrew and Lis primarily came over this month as Russ and Steph were getting married (spending time with us has been a…

Where is this year going🤗

Can’t believe that there is less than a week left in March, and next week is Easter! Whilst I have a few things booked over the coming months, we haven’t booked a holiday and Kevin is being very reluctant about his 60th birthday celebrations🤔 So I guess I will just get something sorted! I have…

The first of three weddings in 2018

Yesterday we attended the first of three weddings we have in 2018. Kevin and I made our way to Royston and checked into our hotel to change into our finery! I took three outfits and two pair of tights, both which ran as soon as I carefully put them on, resulting in a bare legged…

A trip to the City

Today I travelled up to London on a beautiful sunny day to a reunion of a few from the Bank that I used to work at. The bank closed in 1990 but my memories of working there are so fond. Wonderful people, and I met Kevin there with a job I loved. I know there…

Perceptions

This week has been a strange one, lots of excitement and opportunity and not much time to get things done. Early mornings and late nights with a foray into the unknown. A night at home with Kevin spending time with his mum, an opportunity for reflection. This week I’ve been told I’m scary at work,…
