Exactly 30 days left, well – when I wrote this it was Sept. 1st!

Hi All, In exactly one month our feet will be leaving England and returning to Santa Barbara soil.  Not sure of what the next 30 days will be like, though our lists are long and I’m thinking this may end up being our last blog entry from Chichester. Mostyn is ‘cranking’ (his words) on completing …

Bits and bobs, visitors, and one bummer

Dear Friends and Family, I will start with the bummer, as the rest is all good news!!  We learned via our renters last month that there was a leak in our house in Santa Barbara that was coming from our bedroom/bathroom upstairs and made it’s way down through the floor to the garage.  Long story …

Mostyn has posted (or will) about most of the Christmas trip west to Cornwall, but left out Looe and Port Issac, so I will pick up there and also give a brief …

Debbie’s month long impressions

So thought I should update my home front side of things here in blogland!  And now that I have been here over a month thought it an appropriate time to do so. One thing has not changed and that is how much I miss family and friends from home! I am keeping up regularly with …

Debbie’s first week impressions

10 days in and finally sleeping through the night. Jet lag has been overcome, thankfully and I am feeling human again. After such drama and intense anticipation of receiving my certificate of entitlement, immigration was laughable in its casualness! It took me longer to walk from the plane to the immigration station as it did …
