Surfing UK and Tiny ponies

I just adore the beach huts in England, the charming colours are such a welcome treat for the eye, amid various shades of grey and sand.

 Isla tries out a surf board, Charlie and Ollie made it look so easy.

Pipps stays behind "guarding" the rugs, jackets, and footwear while the rest of us take the trek to the water edge.

A visit to the Minature Pony Centre was the highlight of the trip.  It only took Isla a minute to get up close and make some new friends (She reminded me of her mum who at her age, twenty six years ago, was a real life Doctor Dolittle, talking to the animals at every oppportunity).

Big hugs,

Holiday Time

Having worked full time and completed my HDip during the year, I was so glad when study was over, all assignments complete, and a months leave from work finally came round. In May I went to Dartmoor in the UK with Mel, Chris and Isla, we were joined by Maria, James, Ollie and Charlie.  We stayed Rock Barn in South Taunton, and made some wonderful day trips, when we visited Port Issac,Tintagel, Dartmouth and Brixham and Croyde surfing beach. I enjoyed quality family and friends time together, we ate well, walked, chatted, and the highlight of my day was being woken by Isla each morning.

In June Mr. Margie, Mel, Chris, Leiny, Isla and I had our family holiday together in France, staying at La Yole Camping Lodge, swimming, running, reading, eating great french food, all together in the sunshine.

I got my exam results while I was in France and I obtained an First class Honour, we celebrated visiting Carcassonne and Domaine De Rombeau, I adore being in France, I always feel at home there, and it was all the more special when my loved ones are there with me.

Big hugs,
