I Will Drive 500 Miles…York

Weather was not so brilliant today so we opted for a change of plan.  Wee man was booked into Junior Segways session at 11, which was cool fun for him, sister had her session yesterday as she is older and had the opportunity to do the adult version, tour round…

I Will Drive 500 Miles…Scarborough

Took a wee day trip to Scarborough today, both Yve and I have been at separate times in our childhood, but never together nor as a family.  My memory of Scarborough is of an outdoor pool with massive symmetrical slides, that went up a hill that you climbed and then…

Now you see it now you don’t

Well it didn’t take long after the end of Movember for the facial hair to come off.  As is no secret I wasn’t overly impressed with the facial hair on me and the family liked it even less, especially missus.  So we are back to the normal, clean cut, clean…

17th Movember

Trying to keep it going, had some fun this morning on the way to school.  Wee man is not good with not being given the lead and being told something other than what he wanted so we started our school walk with sourpuss walking a wee bit back.  So as…
