OUR 2004.

All the news for our second year in Bristol...

OCTOBER TO DECEMBER. We host some old friends who visit us from Germany, Laetitia's Dad begins a sudden decline in health, and I commence battle with what will turn out to be the world's worst case of shaving rash which will nuke most of my extramural activities for the next few months...
LAETITIA IN TINTAGEL CASTLE AUGUST & SEPTEMBER. My Dad makes his first summertime visit to the UK, we buy another car and use it for a very rainy weekend tour of Devon and Cornwall where we visit Tintagel (closely linked with the legendary King Arthur's Camelot) and stay in the flood-ravaged port village of Boscastle (see a huge page of flood photos here). Laetitia gets back onto the study trail again while I make my first visit to Ireland, and friends visit us from Germany. To add to everything, I get back onto radio again.

ANOTHER SUNNY DAY IN THE COTSWOLD HILLS... JUNE & JULY. L spends the month visiting friends and family back in South Africa while I continue to hold the fort (and sort out the laundry) in Bristol. Dartmoor, Plymouth and London feature on my itinerary for this month...as does a little promotion which boosts the hard-earned. Go to the page...
WHERE WE LIVE... MAY. As the weather improves and summer looms, we start to appreciate having our own private park. The sunnier weekends spurs another trip to the tank museum in Devon, this time for a day out to see the world's only operating Tiger tank. More here...
APRIL. We move to a bigger place in an area that's apparently Bristol's best-kept secret, Spring arrives, and I finally visit a place that I've wanted to see since I was nine years old - the world's largest tank and armoured fighting vehicle museum! Have a gander...
MARCH. Bit of a social month this one, and one which made us realise that we really needed to stop putting sleeping-over friends on our kitchen floor!  March features a burst of flat-hunting as we decided to look around for a bigger place to live. Oh, and it snowed again. Go here...
FEBRUARY. Not as cold as we expected, but our visiting Seoul-mate Julie complained about the weather anyway. Which just goes to show that it's not only the English who complain about the weather! See the page... 
JANUARY. Well, it IS always the first month of the year, isn't it? Derek comes up from Plymouth and we do the tourist thing in Bristol...bit late for that, since we've been here almost a year. More here...
