More UK Life – Log Fires and Family

Been a busy week, with 2 visits to London and a few days in Wales to view houses and catch up with relatives.

Keeping Warm In Wales

With frost forecast and 6 degrees C on the car’s display, my cousins Caitlin and Cerys kindly lit a lovely log fire for us to gather around as we have been feeling the cold. Been some time since we sat with the warm glow from a fire on our faces but definitely something we do miss. Their home is hundreds of years old with an amazing inglenook fireplace, just perfect.

Another Kind Of Boat - Brecon Town Centre

We have been all over south west Wales, seeing towns we haven’t visited before to get some idea of where we might live once we return to the UK, whenever that will be. Lots to think about and so many different options, just making it harder! Brecon and Carmarthen were both great towns with lots going on and beautiful scenery and villages all around.

Stunning Scenery & A Sunny Day

We had a lovely time with my Aunt and Sian, Tony and Tom came to see her at the same time so we could all get together. Family is something we miss most and we hope they will come out and visit us if they can. Tom is hoping to fly out to Bonaire next summer to have a go at diving, the perfect location to learn.

Colder Than The Caribbean But Still Beautiful

Rob didn’t manage to get an appointment with the Doctor, not one to fit in with our busy schedule anyway, so paying for his shoulder operation is a necessity. It only costs 500 GBP more to have it done in the UK but we would have to add on the fees to change flights as well as the extra for hire cars and more expensive living costs in the UK. It is really down to Rob and where he feels most comfortable having it done, bearing in mind that we are living on the boat with access up a 9 foot ladder.

We are back in London again on Tuesday and have another busy week ahead of the flight to Guernsey for our son’s Wedding. We did manage to find suitable clothes for the big day after much stomping, moaning and groaning through London’s Oxford and Regent Street. We just aren’t used to crowds and hard pavements anymore 🙂
