Life's been a little busy lately with our plans of 'selling up & moving onto our boat' being in full flow. I have now found a buyer for my business and it's going through with great speed, along with having the house up for sale too, so I haven't had a lot of time to spend [...]
Wharncliffe & Greno Woods is a beautiful place near Sheffield and every time we go we seem to discover more and more paths for walking and find more mountain biking trails too, but a few weeks ago we were walking in the woods a little off the normal path when Jon suddenly heard an unusual sound. [...]
With a long Bank holiday weekend behind us, Jon and I had asked ourselves the question...a short jaunt in Polly the camper van or a little trip out in the canal boat? It had not been long since we got back from a great week in Cornwall in Polly so we packed up what we [...]
There's more to this quiet little village than meets the eye
A beautifully written post…
Nothing haunts us like the things we don’t say.
This is not an elephant in the room kind of thing where the problem we all acknowledge keeps getting pushed under the carpet. This is more about an unspoken hug. It’s about the things we don’t say because we don’t know if the person we care about wants to hear them or if the words are just inadequate.
It’s about love, and pain. It’s about hurt, and loss. It’s about moments that stay with us forever but never get acknowledged once we’ve moved past them.
It’s about remembering, and forgetting. It’s about understanding, and learning. It’s about wanting to put your arms around someone you care about and tell them you can’t begin to understand their hurt or loss but you think about them everyday. It’s about wanting to let them know that you see past the smile.

With a combination of getting straight back into work, the weather here being rubbish with storms, Doris & Ewen knocking us about and not a lot of money to do anything.

So we arrived in Canada earlier this month for a 10 day stay, snowboarding on the Whistler & Blackcomb mountains. Sounds like I say that as if it's a normal occurrence, but no, really quite a special treat. We usually go to somewhere in Europe for our once a year snowboarding trip and for the last few [...]
