Carry on Blogging

It may have been quiet on my own website for the last few weeks but I have been busy ‘guest blogging’ for other sites.

Husband and I, plus crazy Labrador, Sable, spent a delightful few days on Exmoor in early November. One of the many highlights was a fabulous few hours on the moors with Richard from Discovery Safaris. Not something I will forget in a hurry. I have written all about our adventures for Silver Travel Advisor and you can catch up with what we got up to here:

Discovery Safaris, Exmoor



I was happy to write another feature about my lovely home town of Eastbourne, again for Silver Travel Advisor.

A new website came to my attention, focussing on Sussex and building up a catalogue of reviews on local restaurants and hotels. I am very much looking forward to sampling a vintage afternoon tea at the Lansdowne Hotel in January and reporting for the lovely ladies who run

There is nothing like an afternoon tea to cheer us all up in dull old January.

Of course, how can you miss the fact that it is almost Christmas? Here in Eastbourne the Christmas celebrations started early with a Festive Fair in my area of Meads. It was a cold crisp evening and people came out in their droves to sample local produce, wave to Father Christmas and pop in an out of all the shops that we have in the village.  The Christmas market huts are going up in town and it opens on 9 December and runs through to 17 December 10.00 – 18.00.

Once the holidays are over, and our builders have finished, I can look forward to 2018. Plans are afoot for a press trip to France, joining a Saga holiday on board a riverboat to meander along the Garonne and Dordogne. Having never experienced river cruising I am very excited about this trip. Hopefully 2018 will see me reviewing more hotels and restaurants in beautiful Sussex so watch this space.

On a political note (I never thought I would use those words!) I am becoming more and more involved with the WASPI campaign to ‘persuade’ the government to make transitional arrangements for the millions of women born in the 1950’s who have lost so much of their pension. Who thought politics could be so fascinating, but at the same time, frustrating?  For any readers affected, I urge you to find out more and hopefully join WASPI and you can find details here:

In case don’t get time to blog again before Christmas, Merry Christmas to one and all.
