About me (us)

There are six of us … that’s how it started. The photos below are now old, the kids are now big, and I am now silver not grey.

I write, and I’ve been using this blog as a diary of sorts – and practice ground – since 2015.

I am currently working on a story set in Spain. It was going to be a novella and very light, but now it’s longer and becoming very dark.

For old time’s sake, here are the photos that I first put here.

Me (Becky).

Llanes, Porrúa, Asturias, Celtic, beaches, playas, Playa de Andrín, Andrín, Spain, España, holidays, Northern Spain, Cantabria, Picos de Europa, family travel, kids, travel, cider, sidra, trabanco, Atlantic, sea, seaside, la sierra de cuera, Playa de Palombina, Celorio, bolo palma, la bolero, bar la bolero, sidrería, Sidrería la Peña ‘l Cura, airbnb, Brittany ferries, portsmouth, santander

The husband, who tells a good yarn and makes a mean negroni.

No.1. Has a grudging respect for scorpions. No longer the child in this photo, and no further photos permitted.

No.2. Likes to talk. Understands his dad’s mantra: never let the truth get in the way of a good story. Also grown into an adult.

No.3. Has three brothers. Is gradually accepting that this might be a good thing.

No.4. Paradoxically small but big. Getting bigger.


We argue a lot and get on each other’s nerves.

There are moments, though, when it works out.


Here’s home.
