Have had a really brilliant day in Ayr.  It’s amazing how calm and chilled I feel  sitting in Dobbies on my mum’s stool (and travel rug to cushion the rear!), especially today – which I put down to the wonderful scent of cinnamon that was infusing the air and emanating from an absolutely gorgeous grotto [...]

What A Weekend Of Two Halves!
Posted on: November 11th, 2013 by Jane Hunt

What a weekend for The Befana Drama Giro-Rama tour it was – one full of stress on Saturday & full of smiles on Sunday – a veritable game of two halves, if ever there were one.   It started with an absolutely horrific drive down the M1 and thinks went down south from there.  On [...]
