The Roadtrip (Part II)

‘The bumper is smashed,’ said my Dad. I hadn’t even left home, how could a new rental car have been damaged on my drive? And where on earth was the petrol cap lever? I would need gas en route. As I googled rapidly, Archie barking in the back of the car [...]

The Roadtrip (Part I)

When I was young I remember climbing trees without fear, swinging the swing in my garden so high I thought it would circle all the way round and doing wheelies with such zest and zeal, there was no chance of a fall or crash. I was a bit of a tomboy, [...]

Daily Distractions

My Archie

On paper it was not a good idea, as many a friend advised. A dog? Really? How will that work out in your high-fuelled, traveling, work-filled life? Of course there were more who thought it a good idea. I’d grown up with multiple Labs, I adore dogs, oh and I’m a [...]

Posting Positively
