Jun 1, 2017 - The Ministry of Crap Design

Some years ago Ben Elton had a comedy sketch where he suggested that the design of English products was so bad that it couldn't possibly have occurred by accident. It had to by direct intervention by a secret government ministry, The Ministry of Crap Design (MCD). In the last few months the UK has developed and issued a new £ 1 (one pound) coin. It has a number of unique design characteristics. Some are listed below: 12-sided – its distinctive shape makes it instantly recognisable, even by touch. Latent image – it has an image like a...

Jun 1, 2017 - Part 2

Today we visited a windmill and were very lucky to find someone there as they usually only open and demonstrate on Sunday afternoons which we didn't know until we arrived. So were shown around with another family. It's run by volunteers who are very knowledgeable and we spent a great hour - Tony soaking up all the doings of the machinery etc. Its the only one of it's kind - 5 sails that turns clockwise. Something else you can Google if you're interested. We then went to Lincoln and had a wander around. Lots of people about - it's school...

Sep 9, 2015 - Adventure day 12 - Hannah's graduation

Hannah's big day has finally arrived - her graduation from Lincoln University. She was up early as Richard was picking her and Joe up at 8.00am. We stayed out of the way whilst everyone was getting ready and utilised the caravan to get ourselves sorted. Naz from next door was coming with us as well. We had to wait for Andrew (George's brother) to arrive as he was following us in - he ended up getting stuck in traffic and road closures so to prevent us from being late we met him in Branston and he followed us from there. We made our way into...

Mar 1, 2015 - Lincoln & Birmingham

Lincoln Auf eigene Faust erkundete ich am 14.2.15 die Stadt Lincoln einige Kilometer nordöstlich von Loughborough. Das Wetter war leider typisch englisch, dennoch beeindruckte mich die Stadt sehr. Über der Stadt auf einem Hügel thront eine riesige und sehr eindrückliche Kathedrale. Sie ist von fast überall in der Stadt zu sehen und zu hören (wenn die Glockenspieler den ganzen Samstag-Nachmittag am Üben sind...). Während die Unterstadt grösstenteils modern und mit einer "Waterfront" ausgestattet ist, ist die Oberstadt von vielen kleinen...

Sep 30, 2013 - This Day

Today was a day spent searching for then reading The Guardian, having tea (on sale, see photo), and enjoying the Museum of Lincoln Life. Long walks and cozy cottage always waiting for us. "Definite breezy bits today and bits of breeze for tomorrow, though with sunny breaks through the day." 18' predicted. Spaghetti for dinner which follows Isle of Skye scotch (pictured previously) upstairs. "Upstairs" can be either way - if you go upstairs to the right you get to the first bedroom, then up 12 more windy, circular stairs you reach the...

Sep 28, 2013 - We're in.

We've arrived, finally, in the 16th century. Living in this house is like going into a museum of life in the 1500s and being told you can live here if you like, and pretend, We've added a few things of our own, like five plug-ins to charge the phone, ipad, and both kobos (kindles), etc. Surrounding us are pubs and tea houses, THE Lincoln Cathedral and THE Lincoln Castle each only a couple of cobbled streets away. "Steep Hill is indeed steep!" said Scott as he got back from buying a newspaper. Beautiful, sunny day and we're off to find a...

Apr 21, 2012 - Old Lincoln

The weather looked reasonable so we headed out to explore Lincoln. Whichever direction you come into Lincoln the Cathedral is clearly visible as it sits high on a hill. The hill on which the old town of Lincoln sits was first fortified by in the 1st century BC or Iron Age period. It was called Lindon meaning “hill fort by the lake” due to being built on a hill looking down on pools in the marshy ground of the River Witham. The Romans in 48AD built a fortified town which became known as Lindum Colonia and became one of the four regional...

Nov 6, 2011 - Angies 1st blog entry

Last day in the UK today. It has been a mad, crazy rush packing and storing all of our belongings, whilst packing our bags to travel and cleaning the house. Needless to say I did something stupid and managed to lose the key to the shed. Lose is not exactly true, I know exactly where it is, after finishing clearing out the shed I remember the satisfaction of locking it and putting the key in my right hand coat pocket. I then took the coat off and put it in a bin liner and packed it in the middle of all our things. Just as I was leaving the...

Nov 6, 2011 - First mini journey

So now we have travelled down south ready for our trip to Heathrow tomorrow. Waiting till 2 o'clock as we can only check in 24 hours before departure is a drag, I expect that the system will be rammed with everyone having the same idea. Having our last Sunday lunch for a while today and looking forward to much more interesting drivel than this once we get going :)

Oct 10, 2011 - Jabs

Ouch!! We have started getting our jabs for our jaunt, most of them are free but some you have to pay for, the rabies jab is an expensive one, it takes 3 jabs and the total cost is £125!! I did say it would be cheaper to kill all the dogs but apparently there are monkeys and bats to worry about as well so its better to be safe than sorry. We have booked a road trip whilst in the states heading from Georgia to New York staying at a number of places on the way - Nashville Tennessee, then the smoky mountains in Kentucky and West Virginia...
