NOT SO RECENTLY:

2005

  • In October, Ralph went to do some feeelance work in Montreal
  • We spent a few days exporing Ironbridge.
  • We stayed at Slimbridge Youth Hostel and walked that corner of Gloucestershire (pages to come).
  • We revisited Faversham, Kent, where Ralph was born a few decades ago (!).
  • Ralph spent a week in a cold and wet Spain (serves him right) with our friend Chetna. They went to Cordoba and Seville.
  • We have adopted two cats — Boris and Phoebe. Their mistress is moving abroad, and discovered that it was unlikely that anyone would want to adopt Boris, who is elderly. She didn't want to separate them, however. So we offered them a home. They are very good cats, but have, of course, taken over our lives...

2004

  • We spent August 2004 in British Columbia (pages to come).
  • Ralph went on tour with Nottingham Symphonic Winds in the Black Forest of Germany
  • We spent a great week in deepest Shropshire

2003

  • We moved to New Basford, Nottingham, in December 2003
  • We spent Christmas 2003 in Spain
  • DON'T FORGET TO VISIT 365 (to see the whole of 2003 in photographs)

Lenore has entered into a business partnership with Andrew Mills, Ralph's brother. They have taken over the well-known Nottingham vegan bakery, the Screaming Carrot.

Ralph works as Communications Manager for Ergo Computing, is a freelance writer, is still writing his bestseller (!), is amusing himself by writing erotic short stories, pottering, and prevaricating.
