Staycations

The reintroduction of the quarantine rule for Spain has reinforced that STAYCAYTIONS are the way forward for UK holiday makers for the foreseeable future.

Who needs to go abroad when we are blessed to live on such an island so rich in natural beauty?

A Victorian Townhouse Restoration

Just after the new year of 2016 I bought this Victorian townhouse maisonette in my old hometown of South Shields.

I also wasn’t really sure what I was going to do with the place so I decided to live in it for a while first.

I didn’t want to hurry into any rash decisions which I would regret later.

Our 3rd (Mid July-ish) Update

I’m sitting on our decking writing this on my laptop.

The sun is blaring down and life feels good.

I normally feel terrible when my time with Sonny and Lola is coming to an end (tomorrow they go back to their mams after 2 weeks with me) but don’t this time for some reason.

We’ve had a lovely little staycation holiday.
