November 2016 On the Luce

‘Tis the season of frosty mornings, roaring fires, mulled wine and Christmas shopping. The best thing about going away for two weeks in November is that I missed all the cold, wet weather and the slow Christmas build up…

October 2016 On the Luce

Autumn has well and truly arrived in the UK this month. I’ve got the jumpers and the winter boots out, the slow cooker’s making soup and the woodburner’s roaring away. Not for long though as I’m swapping the cold…

September 2016 On the Luce

It might be a good few years since I set foot in a classroom (in fact it’s 20 years this week since I started university – sob!) but I still get that ‘back to school’ feeling each September. The…

August 2016 On the Luce

After a bit of bad travel luck last month, August didn’t start off too well either – July was a car accident and this month a virus wiped me out. I think the four trips plus a couple of…

April 2016 On the Luce

March 2016 On the Luce

Happy Easter everyone, hope you had a great long weekend and are feeling suitably stuffed with chocolate (I’ve been going for the ‘eat it quickly so it won’t hang around tempting you’ approach, always a winner). So it’s still…

February 2016 On the Luce

Welcome to March, where spring is finally on its way here in England – the daffodils are peeking through and the days are getting longer, and I can’t wait to ditch the thermals for another year. I didn’t quite…

January 2016 On the Luce

Happy New Year – hope 2016 has got off to a good start for you! Normally January is one of my quietest travel months when I’m well into hibernation mode and you can’t drag me far from the fire.…
