New, old photos

I’ve been uploading photos that we used to display in the gallery on 2kiwis to our flickr account, the latest set our final days travelling in the UK before leaving on our six month journey back to NZ. Looking at the photos I’ve got left to upload I realised that there are quite a few […]


Our last holiday in the UK (this time around) saw us travel up north to New Mills and visit Patty and Sam. We stayed the night and then travelled together up to Northumberland where we stayed at the Old Repeater Station near the middle of Haridan’s Wall. Over the long weekend we walked parts of […]

Christmas Day

Today was spent preparing food, watching DVD’s, eating said food and relaxing. There was also a little walk as the evening went from sunset to dusk. Rather than go into details here are a few photos of our hosts and the house where this all happened. Preparing dinner Walking after dinner At the hilltop New […]

Christmas Eve

Today we had a lazy start before heading out into New Mills for a bit of shopping. Christmas dinner is going to be Mexican flavoured this year, just for something different. We purchased food and wine for tomorrow and then walked back to the house for a bit more relaxing. The guys over the valley […]

A service annoucement

We’re having Internet access issues at home and as I can’t update the blog at work we’re going to possibly have fewer updates than normal over the next few weeks. The open field we walked through to get down towards the stream that ran along the valley that the Sanctuary called home For now we’re […]

Because Catherine says so

It’s been quiet here on the Blogging front, possibly a combination of being busy, the onset of winter and the family visits recently. Lets go back through the last few weeks then shall we? This week I was at Leeds on Sunday night so I could be at the LS City Walk Office first thing […]

The start and end of Summer

I think it is fair to say that the UK has had a terrible summer from a sun and temperature point of view. This weekend seems to be attempting to make up for the shortfall by providing a beautiful few days of lovely weather. It’s a bank holiday weekend as well, and bank holidays are […]

Photos of our Scottish excursion

Photos of the Outsider Festival and our trip around the Highlands are now in the Gallery. Most of the photos have been there for over a week now, I just keep forgetting to mention it. Oh, and Richard (star prize for looking at photos before I mentioned they were there) it is a shark, a […]

The Scottish Highlands

We’ve been on holiday for a week up in the Scottish highlands. Over the week we have covered about 1200 miles and seen far too many things. Funnily enough given the terrible weather in England over the last week we had a lot of sun which was not what we expected. I’ll write some more […]


We went sailing on the weekend just gone. We were invited by Keryn’s ex-boss Trish to join her, her husband Nigel and Kevin who works in the IS department at Landsecurities. Nigel and Trish are the sailing experts and Kevin had previous experience while Keryn and I had…looked at a sailing boat from various ferries […]

Weekend visits

Over the last couple of weekends we’ve been out and about rather more than in recent months. It’s no co-incidence that this has corresponded with a marked change in the weather with mostly warm days over the Easter weekend and very warm days the weekend just gone. On Easter Saturday we went out and visited […]
