Big smoke and barbecues…

The week leading up to the weekend saw the Littlies spend the week Saturday to Friday with their Dad in Lowestoft. This meant while I worked in London, Reenie was all by herself in Norwich.

South Queensferry & the Forth

Cameras at the ready again. ┬áIt was only a 40 minute drive from our cottage and once the excitement of driving of the ‘big bridge’ died down we had parked and mat up with Rhona. We enjoyed a lovely walk through town and decided to go for lunch as...
