Are you fed up with hotel rooms?

Warner Leisure Garden Lodges

Sleeping under canvas was never something I was interested in doing, even as a youngster. The  thought of the hard ground, the cold over night and the possibility of animals trying to share my sleeping bag really put me off.

My Sunday Photo – My jewel from a forgotten time

aquamarine ring

I didn’t really know my grandmother. She was old the first time I met her and we didn’t meet often. She wasn’t my real grandma because, like many during the Great War, families made the best of the situations they found themselves in. I think she was actually my mother’s aunt but no matter – she was Grandma Ison to […]
