What a beautiful day!

Today was great, actually we woke up pretty early given the fact that we’d both been having a night out, Charlotte at Annette’s Bachelorette party and I playing Fifa and watching the Championship League final with Claes and Koray.  Both events had been fairly good although, Charlotte’s ended fairly badly as one of the group…

A Knight is born …

There was a market in Nyon today with more than 100 different vendors selling everything from used clothes to antiques.  It was fun to go around and have a look at all the different booths and lo and behold at the last booth, I found a real sword! The sword is a real iron sword,…

Wonderful weekend in Nyon

Its only beginning of May, but it feels more like summer.  This weekend we have enjoyed fantastic weather with the temperature going close to 30 degrees.  We have certainly tried to enjoy the weather having taken walks for the majority of the weekend.  On Saturday morning we took our regular trip to the market and…

Berbatov’s Show!

After breakfast on Saturday afternoon we jumped into our car and drove to Manchester.  The purpose of the trip was to see the football match between Manchester United and Liverpool.  The rivalry between the clubs is intense and largely unrivaled in the world of football.  I have only once had the joy of going to…

Fun & Games

As most of you probably know, the kids were staying with us in August and one of the things we did was to take them to Legoland and Chessington.  Both theme parks were fairly good, but Chessington probably edged Legoland due to the fact that the rides were more fund.  Everyone had a blast throughout…

Knox Birthday Party

We attended Lisa’s and David’s birthday party at their home in Eversley on Saturday night.  It was quite a do as expected and the theme for the night was the 60’s and 70’s.  Almost everyone dressed up which we thought was very impressive and everything from Danny Zuko in Grease to the toughest of the…
