We'd waited years to get the council house & when we moved in it had been 'modernised' with kind of new-old stock, so we had a brand new Belfast sink & wooden draining boards (in 1977, when they were still old fashioned rather than trendy) a coal grate (ditto) no central heating, painted bricks in the kitchen & only one electric socket in the whole house. We had to pay an electrician to fit a couple before we could move in. Two years later the house next door came empty & they threw the works at it, posh kitchen, radiators, gas fire, you name it. Mum had our name on it like a flash. When we moved in we took the fence down temporarily & carried all the furniture through the gap. About three days before Christmas!

Feeling a bit low after spending all week laid up with a pukey bug so been indulging in holiday porn to cheer myself up.

Three weeks here in summer and a week in the wild Lakes in February, just keep your eyes on the prize...

Just had a boiled egg, with toastie soldiers, and salt and a cup of tea. Oh, the small things... but don't know if I can think about "budgies' 'eads" just yet, lovely... I can feel that egg coming back the other way...

Intend to have a lovely rest over Christmas and get ready for a year of change. Think my much-muted redundancy is finally going to happen at the end of April, boy has GCSEs in May and then we intend to set out on a roadtrip in the camper, just me and the kids, Cornwall, Wales and France... and maybe Sheffield – well overdue on an invite to see Maggie and Monkey Boy so may get to see what all you northern types are going on about...

Either way, change is a good thing. xxx

Malaysia was fantastic. ..>

Kuala Lumpur and The Petronas Towers was awesome. :Hoorah

But Langkawi, Hotel, Beach, Rain Forest was stunning. <*>

Bring us back some cake ..>

With retirement on the horizon I priced up a retrun trip to Inverness on the Caledonian Sleeper....came in at just over £700...so it looks like a trip on the Ffestiniog railway after a few pints in The Station Hotel with an hours snooze before arrival in Porthmado instead for me...

Picture from a friend... Storm Imogen comes to Porthcurno...

Stellar place. My boy has his GCSEs in May and I've promised that, soon as they're over and done with, I'll take him for a few days to blow the cobwebs away... Is providing a good incentive to revise...
