Whoa there……

At this time of the new year people are well and truly back into the routine of life. Work to be done, kids back at school and the beach is a place which is visited at the weekend or if your very lucky briefly at the end of the day.

For the Mister and I the opposite is true. The Mister owns two Howard Storage World stores; so being in retail means that December and January bring a rush of people into our store (not that we’re complaining). First, it’s the ones buying Christmas presents, then the new year brings the ones with resolutions which involve being more organised and finally it’s the Mums and Dads buying lunch boxes and drink bottles for their ‘littlies’ who are starting a new school year.

Before we know it, it’s February and time for us to hang up our aprons and tape measures; take a deep breath, pack the car with a few essentials and just stop for a while.


So it will be a little quiet here for a week or two but when I return look out! There will be adventures a plenty to be had and I’m looking forward to sharing them all with you.

Ps. I promise that this will be my last horse reference for a post title. Don’t know why I do it as I’m not even that keen on horses.
