Oct 8, 2015 - Adventure day 24 - Last day with the poms

Today is our last day with the poms and packing day before setting off to Iceland tomorrow! Very sad day and trying not to think about leaving. George pops off to the doctor and I use this opportunity to finalise a few things for their leaving gifts. Hannah and Joe go into town for a bit as they have a few things to do. Richard comes over as George and Carl return back from the doctor. We sit and chat for a bit and I bring all my bits and bobs into the living room to sort before packing. Harley has no idea what is going on and sits with me...

Oct 6, 2015 - Adventure day 22 - Lakes District

We woke up and took our time this morning as we are on our jollies (in pommie land that means holidays). After breaky and checking out we went down to Windamere. Dave and Carl browsed around the boats whilst George went to do a couple of things and I browsed the gift shops. We then went to get tickets for the boat ride down the lake and steam train ride. We had 50 mins until the boat was leaving so we went to have a coffee whilst waiting. Before we got to the coffee shop Carl spotted some owls (the owl sanctuary had a display) and they were...

Oct 4, 2015 - Adventure day 20 - A day with the family

Today has a reasonably slow start to the day. Did some washing etc and chilled out for a bit. We then worked on a plan for making buffet food for the visitors this arvo - Richard, Scott & Ann, Paul & Jane - the 4 boys together again!! We did invite Mark & Bev but unfortunately they did not come. George and I got the food ready and ensured drinks were on ice (well over here they actually just pop the drinks in the cupboard fridge) then we sat down with Hannah and had a chin wag. Dave and Carl were outside doing "man" stuff (had to do with...

Sep 28, 2015 - Adventure day 18 - Chillaxing with the poms

Well after that interrupted sleep last night we did manage to have a little sleep in. Today is sharing a day with the poms. George popped over to Ros place to get the left over sandwiches etc from last night - we put this on the bench so everyone could help themselves during the day. Andrew (George brother) and Mel (his wife) popped in for a couple of hours for a catch up. They are really lovely - we love Andrew as he got us tickets to see Man City play Newcastle next weekend. Very exciting. They were off to the airport so left after...

Sep 26, 2015 - Adventure day 16 - Party with the Pom's

Today we had a lovely sleep in and decided that we were happy to have a quiet day in and re-energise the batteries. So did things like the washing and Dave helped Carl sort out George's stand for her Xmas stall. It was a gorgeous day weather wise so we soaked up a bit of sun and just enjoyed the day. Richard had to work today, but was coming around about 5.30pm to take us all to Nottingham to go to Scott and Ann 30th anniversary surprise party. Scott is Dave's step brother and they haven't seen each other for 50 years - so that should be a...

Sleep in today as we are spending the day chillaxing!! So not up until 9.00am then a slow and steady day - George will be cooking proper Sunday dinner - mmmm nom nom.

Sep 11, 2015 - Adventure day 14 - Woodhall Spa

Today we had a little lie in which was nice. Carl had to do run some errands so he went off and did that. It was best Dave stay out of my way for a bit this morning - he dropped his e-cigarette last night and it wont work today. I do believe he has contacted David for advice - however it is still not working!!!! George and I pack a picnic lunch and when Carl returned we went to Woodhall Spa (not far down the road) for a wander - this is where George and Carl got married so is quite special to them. Took some lovely pics around this quaint...

Sep 4, 2015 - Adventure day 7 - Lincolnshire Walds

Today was originally booked for Richard to take us to York for the day, however he forgot he was working so we have had to postpone this day now. Instead Ros is taking us to Lincolnshire Walds for a drive instead. She had some things to do in Lincoln and we had to sort some stuff out with the travel agent so went into town first. We were all ready to go by about 11.30am so lets go and explore some more. We went for a lovely drive through the changing countryside which was just divine. Through to Louth - another gorgeous little place. Ros...

Sep 3, 2015 - Adventure day 6 - Exploring villages

Today Dave and I decided to go out on our own and explore some villages etc. So after breaaky, shower etc we drive off in a direction - not to sure which way. We have a GPS but decide not to use it - lets just drive for a bit and see where the road takes us. We are in no hurry so it doesn't really matter where we end up. So in the car and we just drive - no idea where.............we go through some lovely little villages Scopwick, Digby, Ruskington and stop in a lovely town called Sleaford. Here we stopped at an old Mill and walked through...

Sep 2, 2015 - Adventure day 5 - Lincoln

So again it is all just too nippy of a morning to get up too early - so no early morning starts. This morning we sort out what we are doing whilst we make sure we see all those things on our bucket list. We also want to do some things with the poms so we look at what can be done with everyone around their working schedules. We decide to pop into the travel agent in Lincoln to sort out Iceland and see what is available for Wales and Ireland. Richard has the day off today - so he pops around and takes us where we need to go. So first stop we...

Sep 1, 2015 - Adventure day 4 - Lincoln

Well today is the first day of Autumn not Spring and that feels a little odd!! Again another late up and at em - but all good as we are spending this time chilling out and recharging our batteries. Carl, Hannah and Richard are all back at work today - luckily Georgina's boss is really understanding and has allowed her as much time off as she likes (for those of you who do not know - she works for herself making amazing ceramics - at the minute she is pumping out Xmas tress to sell at Christmas stalls - they are big on that sort of thing...
