One of the unusual joys of our week in the west country was being able to visit a ‘pannier market’. Held in a huge market hall built centuries ago and called Corn Exchange, the function is similar. Clothes, beautiful country and outdoor jackets and gillets with sheepskin lining. Heavy duty wellington boots and all manner […]

There is something in the air suggesting a bank holiday is creeping upon us again. The shops madly advertising bar-b-que goods and large drinks packs on offer and the larger general stores displaying new garden benches, plants and everything to do with leisure activities. All of them urging us to get out there and do […]

Whatever the situation in the family, there is still the need for total organisation when […]
You never know where the time goes do you. No sooner have we got over the summer holidays with the twin evils of flying off with family in tow, a week or two in the sun. And the flying back with the family in tow and the suitcase with the wonky wheel, the sunburn etc. […]
Gone are the days when every family bought presents and gifts for the offspring of all the other families they had connections with.
