I fell in love whilst basking in the sun in Gran Canaria and the thing is with these holiday romances, they don’t last but the memories stick with you, especially when the object of your infatuation is a cracking good read. In my case, I was hopelessly gone […]

I love the whole kit and caboodle of our traditional Christmas. The build-up, decorating the tree and the house, the endless shopping, both in the supermarket and on Amazon.

Remember ladies, don’t forget to pack your SheWee for the ultimate Amsterdam experience … Ja!
Our skies took on an Armageddon hue for a while yesterday, but thankfully, we are all still here this morning.
Never mess with a depressed GOW who is leaving glorious sun-soaked weather for the rain-soaked UK. The three of us were going through security at Faro Airport this morning and it was not exceptionally busy by their standards, so it was a surprise when a young jobs-worth security […]

Peggy Boleat (1922-2014) I so wish I had met Peggy Boleat having just read her extraordinary and raw account of her life in Jersey during the German occupation of the Channel Islands in the Second World War. My life in Jersey started in 1981. Our paths could have so […]
