Holiday at Home: Photo Diary

I got home from my trip home over a week ago, but at the moment it seems like if I manage to check something off my to-do list within a month then it's good going. I always take lots of photos and never post half of them, so I decided to record my trip with … Continue reading Holiday at Home: Photo Diary

I think my favourite new places are the Tattershall Castle, the pub on a boat; Dublin, because it was great to see … Continue reading 16 Goals in 2016: Half-Year Progress
