This post is a thank you for all the support my parents have given us. It is been unmitigated in it’s generosity. If it wasn’t for their generosity we would not be able to set off to live our dream.

It struck me that I might have been a tad morose in my last few posts so here’s a mellow post.

So I was not surprised to see Heinz Baked Beans, certain… Read More Visit from Ami, the fabulous red cart and general mummerings

Our team of three has… Read More Work, university offers, the tree dilemma and techie toys!
