On Wednesday we arrived in a village north of Peterborough just in time for dinner. My beautiful Rhodesian/British friend Flis welcomed us into her family home for our next two nights on the road trip. What a lovely family, all three of us felt so relaxed and welcomed. We mainly chatted, a lot, to catch up on the last three years of happenings. We also made sure the children had some fun, so a trip to the park with a small picnic was in order. Lots of chatty family meals around the table made the stay most memorable, charades and 20 questions brought lots of laughs and silliness.
Flis, hubby and boys, you guys have brilliantly blessed us, we love you lots, till soon!!
Our next destination, north of Stevenage, brought about one broken nail due to a huge spider drama, much happiness about free Wifi (teens) and a surprise for day 6. You’ll have to wait till tomorrow for that!
Enjoy the pics!

Day two and three of our road trip has been rather fun. We’ve been with Daniela and her two children, Jack & Niamh, just chilling out, chatting, playing on gadgets, chatting and drinking coffee. No stress, just a lovely pleasant time.
After a leisurely morning and lunch, we took a walk to visit Daniela’s mom, on the way the kids had a play in the park to burn off some steam. Then a nice hot coffee and chats at Nonna Polly’s house while kids played on the trampoline and teased the fish in the big pond outdoors. Before the rain set in we set off home again to get some dinner. Daniela made a lovely pasta bolognese, yum!!
Day 3 meant it was time to leave and yes, Daniela, we wont leave it as long as four years next time!
Enjoy the pics – day 4 will be up soon!

Time to say bye
Time for our annual holiday and this year I have decided to take the girls on a road trip round all the towns we have lived in, in the UK. We have moved a lot and met a lot of folk on our journeys; most of the friends we will be visiting we haven’t seen in four years and miss them dearly, so we are quite excited!
We started our journey yesterday, arriving at my friend Daniela’s at 10:20pm after a 5 hour journey (coffee break was also needed). We then ended up chatting and catching up till about 1am. It’s been a great start to our journey, you know it will when your youngest asks you to tell her all the other places you’ll be going and then says “I think this is gonna be a great holiday, mom!” “Yes, I think so too, sweetie!”
We’ll try post a little something every day so come along on our Road Trip holiday this year, we hope you enjoy the ride!
