Easter in England 2015 – part 5

Ice Cream Van in the Rain, Wales, UK

The magical mystery tour continued – I was thinking we might go see Rye harbour and Rye castle but the kids weren’t keen, so we popped into Camber Sands for an ice cream and a paddle in the sea.

I like Camber, we go there a bit as it’s safe, easy to get to and family friendly.

Easter in England 2015 – part 2


We often go out for lunch to Sevenoaks when I’m over – a special treat in a really nice restaurant that is open all day – so early or late is no problem.  It’s not normally packed out, so we can usually just rock up and get a table without an issue.

This place specialises in pizza, which makes everyone happy😉 Read More

Easter in England 2015 – part 1


It’s that time of year again – another trip to England to see my children.

Luckily, I knew the epassport gate was on the left of the line, so I wiggled through to the unloved machines and was out within 15 minutes.

Summer holiday in England – part 1


Hello dear friends!

Apologies for the brief lull in activity – I’m about to make up for lost time, so bear with me.
I’ve been away, back to Blighty, to the Motherland to see my children.
Doesn’t seem that long ago that they were here in Perth with me.
Time flies.

Christmas 2013 – Tern Island and Perth


The girls all wanted to go for a walk, so Henry stayed home with Jay and I drove the girls a few km down the road to Safety Bay so we could walk around Tern Island.

Fun fact, Tern Island isn’t actually an island.  Its a spit of sand thats well and truly connected to the land.  It encloses the a shallow lagoon that the kite surfers use as a wonderful freestyle kite playground.  I’ve posted a ton of pics of these guys here before.

Anyway, despite it not being an island, the tide was high and we had to wade out across the shallows to get on it. Read More

More from Christmas 2013


Damn, I’m slack – I was meaning to do a post every few days to get through all these, now it’s a month late and it’s not so relevant.  Ah well.

Anyway, continuing the theme – we spent a lot of time outside (as it wasn’t stupidly hot) and the beach, being pretty much on my front door step, was an obvious place to hang out for Ella and Henry! Read More

It’s Chriiiiiiiiiiiisssstmaaaaaaas.

Motorcycle Christmas Card

Yes, it is, as yelled by Noddy Holder in that old faithful seasonal refrain, ‘Merry Christmas Everybody’

I hope you had a brilliant Christmas – I certainly have!

But first, a small apology Read More
