Sunday Sevens #93 23.7.17

A jaunt to Wales


Last Sunday we took a drive to North Wales to visit family. Just over an hour’s drive from my parents’ home and we were in the beautiful rolling hills near Mold. It’s such a beautiful part of the world.  Our relatives also have a big garden so the Little Postcards had a whale of a time running about playing with their cousins and three lovely dogs…

…. including Seren. Isn’t she adorable? 🐾

More blue skies


If you saw last week’s post with grey skies over Manchester, you will understand why I needed to include this photo of gorgeous sunny blue skies this week 😉

Goodbye…


This used to be the view from our bedroom window. On Tuesday, we returned to our old home (which we have rented out for the past 8 years) and emptied the loft in readiness for selling the house. Mixed emotions about leaving this place, but it’s the right thing to do.

Obligatory fish and chips photo…

Now don’t get me wrong, we didn’t eat fish and chips all the time when we lived in England, maybe once a month? But we sure do miss fish and chip dinners in Gibraltar. There are several food establishments on the Rock who serve British style fish and chips, but it’s just not the same. So we have to indulge when we are back home.

Zero food miles 

We were lucky enough to enjoy some of my parents’ home grown strawberries on our trip over. This is the last one – and it’s mine!!!

Hello Reading


We took a train down south to Reading on Friday to visit some very dear friends who used to live in Gibraltar. We do miss them a lot so it’s fab to have an annual catch up.

Rainy Reading


Yesterday the weather wasn’t fantastic so we headed into Reading town Centre for a lovely lunch and cinema trip for the Little Postcards and their friends. Such a lovely day in spite of the weather!
