Back to base for a quick lunch – locally produced pasties – and then off by car to ‘Blists Hill’. This is an authentically preserved Victorian tow. Bakers, Candlemakers, Locksmiths are all there in period costume and totally absorbed in their role. Fascinating! You even get the option of changing your real money into authentic replica ‘old money’. If it hadn’t been for the authentic ice-cold wind and rain :), we may have stayed longer!
Returned to the flat, and got a real fire going. Lovely! Eating in tonight. Only 300 or so more Christmas cards to write!

I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s!
My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community.
But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure!
On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there’s no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
