OK so we’ve been here for just over 3 months, that’s just about enough time for us to start settling in and getting to know our way around the city. We obviously don’t look like new arrivals anymore as amazingly, we find more and more often, people are asking us for directions and questions in […]
This is a very short little video that I took this morning so you can hear the cicadas and the racket they make! Personally I love it, it always makes me think of warm holidays!!
As I explained yesterday, we’ve found a solution to getting out and about with Charlie,by getting up at the crack of dawn, while it is still cool enough for him to be comfortable. While we were in Spain, one of the things that brought us the most joy was seeing Charlie enjoying the beaches, not so […]
Don’t get excited – we aren’t fruit picking to make money, we went to the local farm to get some Fruit and Veg!! It was fabulous, a massive expanse of fields all laid out beautifully with signs, very much as we have in the UK but here they have flowers too! It was a great […]

We are still baking here in the UK, but I must say, I love it. We get far too little warm weather so I refuse to complain about it. I do have a tip that may interest you. I keep a pack of Baby Wipes in the fridge and when the heat just gets too […]
Squirrel Damage!! The clematis has really bloomed this year … must be the rain!! Summer’s coming!!
I used the tickets I won in the local photography comp today. I headed off to Wisley Gardens in Surrey. The sky was blue and the sun was out … it couldn’t have been a better day for it! I saw from the website that there was a Sculpture Trail, I was really looking forward to seeing […]
