Disneyland Paris

Disneyland Paris

We have just got back from the most wonderful two weeks in France. We finished the holiday off with two days at Disneyland Paris. We stayed at a caravan site a short drive away which we came back to at night ready to do it all again the following day. I have heard of people going for one day but I have no idea how you fit it all in. It was hard enough getting it all in over two…

Hampton Court Castle and Garden.

Hampton Court Castle and Garden.

Today we visited a hidden gem in Herefordshire. Hampton Court Castle and Gardens can be found between Hereford and Leominster (close to the junction of the A49 and A417).

In every children’s area they tend to attract the largest crowds, never an empty seat when they perform unless they have you dancing, jumping around and becoming part of the show.  They become the backbone of every kids’ area they…

Preserving Memories

Preserving Memories

My Mum writes in a diary every single night. I was reminded of the diaries when I recently stayed and went into the cupboard under the stairs. On the shelves she has diaries going back to when my brother and sister were small, so she must have around 50 years worth at least. As far as I’m aware she has never missed a entry, some days the entries are short and just about the weather or what shift she worked…
