Apr 29, 2004 - Antoinette in Legoland- oh yes what a dream come true

I know I am a nerd but I really enjoed doing this. It is one of my dreams in life to visit all the Legolands in the world (except maybe the one in California- unless they can airlift me in and out and stuff wax in my ears (do not cf. Odysseus) to avoid the Californian accent.). Also it was one of my aims this year along with go to Greece, go to Prague. These two it does not seem with be happening so I have to be content with this. (Why oh Why is plural s starting to look so strange to me???). Caught the bus nice and early to Windsor and...

Nov 24, 2003 - Ready for take off!

After many months of planning the day has finally arrived and we are stood poised at Heathrow ready for take off. A hectic weekend following our final days at work ended with the trip up to London on Sunday evening, but not before we enjoyed an early Christmas with the family. Presents were handed out before an emotional farewell. As we write this e-mail the feelings are of excitement, anticipation and uncertainty. Garry was particularly keen to make sure we didn't miss the flight. This was achieved comfortably, arriving 3 hours before they...

Nov 11, 2003 - Home

We have been home now for just over two months and a lot has happened. Joel and Billy were delighted to be back at school and settled well with no ill effects.

Having fretted about the future and what God had in store for us, we feel convinced that...

Nov 6, 1976 - Day trip to Linlithgow

We set off for Linlithgow about 10.30am. It was about an hour's drive so we went through to Queens Ferry to have a look at the two Forth Bridges. Then back to Linlithgow to meet Myra and Jim (Gallacher?), Ilza and Graeme. Had a lovely roast lunch and dessert. Then Myra took us through into town to see St Michael's Church,, where Mary Queen of Scots was reputedly christened, and the Palace next door where she was born. It was really interesting and it was a pity it was such a hurried visit. We drove home after dark, despite Uncle Bill's not...

Sep 6, 1976 - Harwich to London

I didn't get up till after nine - a real luxury. Went for breakfast by myself as Ian had already had his. Then went to change my money and bough a couple of things in the duty free shop. I found Ian with the others in the bar and spent the rest of the time there until the ferry docked at 12.30pm. We went through Immigration and Customs and onto the London train. It was a nice trip to Liverpool Street Station where we said goodbye to everyone and caught a txi to London Walkabout Club with Cliff and Trevor. Then after checking in we spent...
