April 5, 2017

March was truly Marvellous and now we are in Amazing April and its sunny, the leaves are all a-bursting from the buds and the Yellow Brimstones are a-flitting about. Love it. Apologies if you have been telephoning or emailing and haven’t had a response last week only we were walking, like you do. Yes we are all back safe and sound from our epic (for me!) walk to Avebury. It nearly didn’t happen for Polly as she managed to lose a back claw on the Friday which we didn’t discover until Saturday! Come Monday she clearly wasn’t up to it but did come and see us off. She did join us on Tuesday and went from Cadsden to Avebury and was truly fantastic. We reckon we did 90 miles and she probably did 150![more …]

Welcome 06.03.17

Well, there you go, be amazed, doesn’t seem like a month has passed since we last put pen to tip tap pad. By the time this gets finished though it probably will be! Seager mentioned, the other day, that, we don’t use enough commas so, best I use a pile up early on, just to keep him happy. Jolly January came and went and now fantastic February has passed into recent history and we are facing Marvellous March. My resolve in this being a fine year remains undimished, or undiminished, whatever. For those turning up for the first time, you are most welcome and we hope you have a pleasant and hopefully cheery visit (forgot the commas there then!). [more …]

Welcome 03.02.17

Be amazed, nearly got this up on time. Been a bit hickledepickledly of late. Need more daylight I reckon. A very warm welcome to you and thanks for checking out the site. Hopefully there should be some fresh stuff up (see paragraph two!). We have had a short burst of busyness recently but mainly it is the still the quiet time of the year for us which means other stuff should get done. Sadly we managed not to get to the Icicle, the Black Horse AGM or the London Region meeting to see Rob Bayly’s brilliant talk and slide show on ballooning over London on account of Jane’s dad and carers but all is now pretty much sorted and we did get to the Chiltern Region social in Lavenden which was very well attended and the grub very good.

Welcome 09.01.17

Here we are back again and a very belated very, very Happy New Year to you all and a sincere thankyou to you all for your custom and support last year. In a year where there seems to be even less ballooning than ever before, not least assisted by the weather, it was very much appreciated. We did manage to get a long overdue trip down to Devon and Cornwall to visit my aged Auntie Pam and talk about writing up my Uncle John’s flying story which will be pretty exciting. Naturally advantage was taken to visit me favourite pub, The Red Lion in Clovelly. Its great in the winter as there are no tourists! We are currently having a big rethink about opening times until the season gets going but please be assured if you need anything sorting then please call in the normal way, Tuesday to Friday, or drop a mail to either or I will try and keep me mobile close by and turned on during office hours. If all else fails try which is manned by Jane! [more …]
