Once back in the UK, as well as attending my great-nephew’s christening, I had a 1 week job in Liverpool. Paul was now living in an AirBnB and we were going to spend some time together too.   My first stop was at the home of a good friend, so we could have a catch-up! […]

Meetups, farewells, holidays #9 – chill time and playtime …. with furry friends, little friends and others!
