Bacon Sandwich at Cliftonville Cafe

Not the best bacon sarnie but great company and the view overlooking the sea is fantastic. I have a theory that from that part of Thanet’s wonderful coastline your can always  see Ten ships, well today was a failure for my theory because of a sea mist I couldn’t even see the  wind turbines off Margate.The cafe was busy and the journey up there on the electric wheelchair was trouble free other than detours to find dropped curbs. A great trip out CLICK HERE FOR GOOGLE EARTH PICTURES

School’s out.

This made me smile as my Daughter in Law is a teacher and daughter is Teaching Assistant and they go loads of stuff


This is not an original title. It’s not even a clever title. But it refers to a very special day in the school year. That is of course, the last day of the summer term. Out of my front window, I can see the hordes of parents and children following their daily path to the local primary school. The mood is generally upbeat.
