A few years ago I spent some time in Newcastle, Australia, getting to know the city a bit more. I had a lovely time exploring the area and taking the time to just wander the streets. On one of these wanders, I came across a mural which had been painted on the side of a… Continue reading Australian Street Art
So, it's now officially 2019! That's another year done and dusted. It's amazing how quickly they go now - I swear the years lasted longer when I was younger! But as I wrote in my review post I feel like 2018 was quite a good year all in all, it certainly was in terms of… Continue reading New Year Wishes And Thanks!
Well, it's almost the end of the year and it's that time when we all start reflecting on the year that has passed, the ups and downs, the achievements, the un-achievements (lets not call them failures!). You may also be inundated with review posts at the moment...so sorry to add to the pile, but here… Continue reading My 2018 Travels – A(nother) Review!
... CHRISTMAS DECS WITH MEANING!!! It took me a while to get round to putting the Christmas tree up this year.

It's been a really busy week at work, I've been exhausted by the time I've gotten home and my head is full of all sorts of thoughts, worries, plans and lists...everything… Continue reading A Post About Nothing!
I'm a self-confessed technophobe. I try, but I don't really understand technology and am impatient if it doesn't work. I never have the most up to date kit...in fact, I probably don't even have the kit in the first place! The old days! When I first went travelling, digital cameras were in their infancy, the… Continue reading Travel and Technology
How to spend a day in Menorca, hopping back from Son Bou to Mahon airport, taking in some cultural and natural sights along the way.
A visit to Blackpool wouldn't be complete without seeing the Illuminations!! We had been up the Blackpool Tower earlier that day, (enjoying the views!) so, we were up for hitting another of the town's tourist attractions! The tradition of the annual illuminations which light up the promenade dates back to 1879, when they first experimented… Continue reading The Blackpool Illuminations!
