Have wondering where I’d vanished to? We have been adventuring in Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda, spending time with two of our daughters, one of whom lives in Nairobi, and seeing all sorts of wonderful animals from A to Z.

Why don’t you have a look at the professional image online here and see what you think…not only snow but a snowed-over barrel outside the pub! … More Sepia Saturday 163: Snow deep and crisp and even
I am participating in the A to Z 2012 blog challenge throughout April. My theme is a genealogical travelogue or a travel genealogue (I’m not sure which). This is how I introduce each post, but really, what is it I’ve been trying to achieve? There are, as I say, two strands to my stories: family … More My A to Z challenge: what’s it all about about?
