Thank you for your kind words Sheila, I'm already looking forward to the swap next year! I would love to side swap with you then - I missed out on all the side-swapping this year as I was away from home!
Thank you for your kind comments Christine :-)
Many thanks Tammy!

A very quick iPhone sketch while waiting for the cross-channel ferry - random man in the café - he looked like he'd had a whole lifetime of misery! Looks like it will be quite rough so I'm off to lie in my bunk very soon. Looking forward to waking up... Continue reading
