I Needed That!

Well, I said I felt guilty having a mini break after such a long ‘lay off’ during the Coronavirus pandemic, but once there I have to say it was just what the doctor ordered.

Getaway Booked!

We’ve all been locked down for over a year now (yes I know there have been odd spells of normality) and one thing I have missed are holidays.
