Holiday 2011: Day 8

The drive home was pretty uneventful. We stopped in a random Tesco on the way back, visited the toilets and got some sausage rolls. The journey to get home seemed longer than the journey to get there for some reason. Smudge was so cute when we pulled into the drive. …

Holiday 2011: Day 7

We went to Teignmouth on day seven. It was raining, so we didn’t really see much there. We went to The House Of Marbles, saw some guys blowing glass things, Jane and Myrtle bought some glass things, other than that, not a lot happened on this day. I got the …

Pre-holiday bonus

Work is a bit odd at the moment. Loads of people are leaving or possibly getting sacked – I’m glad I can get away from it for a week to be honest. We’re going to Dawlish next week, with Jane’s Mum and Dad. Should be interesting. Anyway, as a pre-holiday …
