Now I do remember this booking of this holiday on the Solway Firth.

We didn't actually go on it as my brother an his g/f broke up so my my Mum and her b/f went instead. I can still recall it was a white washed thatched cottage .. this was way beyond the internet age so I must have been sent a photo..........

latterly I have discovered a postcard that my grandfather sent from Silloth which is a spit away on same coast maybe it was a good decision to make ??

oh p.s. I have suddenly become my mother my teens eyes .. she is watching the 'Brit Awards'. I am popping back in and out to watch the stars on there and am being met with a HUGE 'huff' .... P-L ease tell me I am not seen as the produce of Victorian parentage ... hey I listen to Radio One !!

Teenagers never think their parents are cool. and they hate it even more if their friends say "Hey your mum's pretty cool"
