... We lasted all of ten minuted before making a swift u-turn. We are beginning to see the signs of travelling around in off season with more places empty and using the opportunity to renovate etc.
We celebrated Annie’s birthday here and she had a lovely day full of flowers, jewellery, gifts, booze, great steak and red wine! I think she had a great one, it looked like it from the smile on her face anyway.
