Glyn’s New Model Army Tattoo by Joolz

By wadeygc / December 30, 2014 / Claire's Blogs / No Comments

Glyn’s Christmas present from me this year was a tattoo by Joolz. As Glyn is a massive New Model Army fan and Joolz has been designing their artwork for 35 years, with 12 years experience in tattooing, it made sense. We drove through snow to Bradford and after a few hours well spent in the ...

Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium

By wadeygc / November 10, 2014 / Claire Blogs 2, Claire's Blogs / No Comments

I knew we’d arrived at Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium before I’d spotted the sign, because of the people outside looking in through the windows and cooing over the indifferent sleeping cats. My step-daughter, Lia, had told me about the Cat Café phenomena after she visited a few in Seoul, Korea and I t...

By wadeygc / October 13, 2014 / Claire Blogs 2, Claire's Blogs / No Comments

The first time I saw you, it was brief and you were hiding under a table. You were a rescue cat, re-homed with my ex-boyfriend’s mum and very scared of people, so you ran and hid. I’d been super-excited to meet you because I didn’t have a cat of my own and I missed that. […]

Portugal Day 8 Saturday 23rd November We got up at 5.30am as it’s a 2.5 hour drive to Lisbon and as we had only a day there, we didn’t want to waste any time! The road up to Lisbon was so empty. I appreciate that it was early, but in the UK, the motorways would […]

Damp Squib and Azelejos

By wadeygc / June 8, 2014 / Portugal Blogs / No Comments

Portugal Day 6 Thursday November 21st Today turned out to be a bit of a damp squib. The original plan was to get up early and go up north to Évora to see Megaliths and pre-historic stuff. Google maps had claimed it was just a two hour drive but the satnav reckoned more than three […]

Pirates, Pebbles and the Tourist Traps

Portugal Day 5 Wednesday November 20th Today Glyn and I went back to Silves via Algoz (that wasn’t so much as sleepy but dead). We went that way for a change of scenery and to avoid toll roads. When we’d hired the car we were asked if we were going to use the motorway. This […]
