In the spirit of Thanksgiving I would like to give a huge big thank you to all my friends here on my blog for following me through my training and giving me so many good wishes, providing good advice and your support.

I would also like to thank everyone that downloaded my tracks on Amazon, Google or iTunes any funds raised from this will be used to help to support the next stage of training so I’m very grateful, I’ve got such a lot that I want to learn.

To my friends in the USA I would love to understand what Thanksgiving means to you so it would be great to hear what you do to celebrate the holiday. If you have written a blog post about it then please post a link in my comments as I would love to learn more and share your experiences with my none American friends.

Thank you all 🙂

p.s. I have just noticed that this will be my 200th post !!




Shakespeare En Route

July 20, 2014 — 43 Comments

Last Saturday the 12th July I was due to leave on a late flight for a fortnights holiday. It was such a lovely day that my Mum decided that it would be great opportunity to make the most of the trip and stop somewhere nice for the afternoon. We decided on Stratford Upon Avon, it is a beautiful town with plenty of history and makes a great place to wander around on lovely summer’s day.

We arrived just after lunch and there was boating regatta taking place on the river so the town was bustling with extra visitors. My Dad dropped us in the town centre and went off to find somewhere to park the car. My Mum suggested that we take a walk down to the Royal Shakespeare Company theatre and have a look around. It was full of interesting displays and little gift shops. When my Dad caught up with us we decided to have a wander around and get a better feel for the place.

We had a lovely afternoon, enjoying the summer sunshine and taking in the history of the place. The time flew and before we knew it it was time to make a move and head off towards the airport so that i could catch my flight. It was a fabulous way to start my holiday and I was so pleased that my Mum suggested it 🙂


Arriving in Stratford Upon Avon for the afternoon.


We picked up a street map to help make the most of our time in the lovely town.


We walked past the statue of William Shakespeare on the way in to the town centre.


This display was inside the Royal Shakespeare Company theatre situated on the river bank.


This was New Place and Nash’s House


Tom could not resist one last photograph before we finally got back to the car park.
