Jul 4, 2013 - June holidays down south

June holidays down south We had a lovely time in cromer last weekend, the sun came out every time we needed it to :-) at other times we just admired the sea view from our window, which sat on the cliff edge. we even managed to swim 3 time in our outside pool ( it was very warm water) and the kids loved playing in the sea on one particularly beautiful evening. We had fish and chips by the pier and went on a 2 and half hour boat ride to see a large group of seals, you would have liked it, there was hundreds of different nesting birds all...

May 28, 2013 - Our month and half in Scotland

Well we have been living in our little caravan in Scotland for just over a month, and I think we have settled in well we moved after two weeks to another pitch as the first one was to open to the wind that blew across the valley. I feel very relaxed here in Scotland and do not tire of seeing the ochills even when it's grey and cloudy in fact they look just as good when the weather is rough, that's the joy of living near mountains/ hills. I like the fact that we are involved more with the outdoors now for instance we go out to the washing...

Apr 16, 2013 - After the Scottish takeover I've hit the low lands

After the physical and mental exertions of gutting the House, leaving family, and towing the caravan to Scotland. I was on a high, ready to go forth and conquer Scotland, clean caravan, fix home and get started in homeschooling again which I have to say has been a little lacking ( but then the experience of the move and relocation is an education in its self). I was all set to go ... but instead i find us in the first week, back in the lowlands. ( figuratively speaking ) to day is Tuesday and andy's second day of work, it's 11am and...

Oct 24, 2011 - Bletchley Park

We left home this morning at 9:00am and had a really good journey down the motorway. We arrived at Bletchley Park at just after midday, having only had one brief stop for a coffee for Paul and a muffin for Reuben. Bletchley Park was quite busy - the car park was full, but we did eventually manage to get a space. We ate our lunch in the car and then set off. The weather elsewhere in the UK has been terrible - lots of rain and strong winds, but no sign of this in Milton Keynes. The sun was shining and it was a lovely bright day. We paid the...

This is it we are really off ... in fact we have gone! 13:45 and we are starting to gather at Hazeley, it is all a bit unreal, especially in this most "un-british" weather of clear blue skies and scorching heat. Hopefully there is going to be loads more of this to come over the next month. 14:15 Everyone is here, loads of parents to see us off and the two kind volunteers who are driving us down to London and then having to bring the minibuses back to school. Some quick team photos and then we are off. Will update this if I can (or Dad will...

Jul 10, 2010 - Under starter's orders

Today as been tweaking what was in my rucksack and having a last practice at packing, moving a few things from one dry-bag to another. It is all "quarantined" now; rucksack, day-bag (carry on) and a dry-bag with the clothes I am wearing to the airport. Time to chill now; - a trip to Crownhill park to fly my power-kite - despite the hot calm it had some real pull when it got above the wind shadow but the wind kept dying to dead calm ever few minutes - a last chance to go to the gym and squeeze a bit more out of my months membership, I...

Jul 7, 2010 - Final prep - Bag check and blog test

It's getting serious now, we have all taken our packs into school to get them checked by our teachers to work out if we actually have everything we need. I don't think I did too badly, though apparently I may have too many clothes and too large a wash kit :S Over than that I think it all went pretty well, only three days till we take the plane from Heathrow to Madrid, then back over the Atlantic. Kind of annoying that we have to do all this mucking about going in THE WRONG DIRECTION first but you have to live with it I guess we're still...
