Travels with Cathy and Steve's Guestbook

8th May 2011

hi guys
Love the updates, sitting here in my little sittingroom in Leigh picturing you two on the funicular (I love them too, almost as much as the word itself). All well here, Bell and I have been out and about exploring the countryside - Windsor, Stonehenge, Chartwell - weather still great, well, for this Canadian it is. I do note that my fellow dog walkers are jacketed and even gloved as I stride by in my shorts. You may have lost the grinder and iron C - Caroline visited last week (from Barleylands) and offered me 300 for the lot which is very attractive. Do you mind??? Have a blast, tie your pants to the mast vb

South America
This is where I start to get envious! Sounds like you're having a great time - we're enjoying reading the blogs so keep 'em coming. They're asking after you at Shambhala, Cathy! Enjoy South America - looking forward to reading more Sue

Hi Cathy and Steve, You both look so relaxed in the photos, and good to see some fine weather and summery clothes. In the time I've cooked, cleaned, gardenned for an invasion of visitors over the long weekend you've "done Australia"! I had 10 visitors, my family and best mate Anni over as we had friends from Botswana visiting. All went very well,and I've nearly finished the washing up. So life here not quite as fascinating as yours... I loved the pecefulness of your treetop walk, in contrast to lots of high-rise bacgrounds, although I'm a city gal myself. The fishing boats and fish must be giving you mosaic ideas, Cathy, although your fish are pretty unbeatable! When I saw the temple rooftop I thought that was asking to be mosaiced and a few slides on there it was. I hope Santiago is great, I think that was one of the places you were really looking forward to. I won't make any crude jokes about fish balls as they are a Russian jewish dish too! I'm getting a few things together for the art trail, finished another little guinea fowl (what the world needs is more guinea fowl mosaics). Also got the library display next week. Debbie and Wisdom are both coming the first morning to set up and be around. I watched the main bit of the Royal Wedding with Debbie, smoked salmon and bubbly breakfast. Thought it was lovely, despite being a republican! Keep on having good times, Mara xx

Thanks to Steve for introducing me to AC/DC, in Corfu, I think. Been a fan ever since, in fact I have a "Black Ice" poster on my study wall which I'm looking at now! (A bit of nerdy info which you may already know - I guess the bagpipes were because the Young brothers and Bon Scott were all born in Scotland! Glad you're having a great time! Dave & Stevie

Can't believe you'd be missing the wedding C - surely you were chosen to make the jewellery and lovely stole things that you make! Looking forward to the pics

Hello Perth............ least I think that's where you are going. Long time since I was there but make sure Freemantle is on the list and Rottnest Island just for the Quokkas which are really cute. Have fun! C&Gx

So far yet so near
Hi guys, wonderful to be able to read your adventure as it is happening. Cathy, be sure to take pix of the backpack as it grows enroute. All well here, watching more royal wedding historics and runups, weather incredible AGAIN. Toms hearty and very healthy. Your favourite dog sends a lick. vb

officially a bit envious
Hope you have a great time - can drop you some dining options for BA if you like - be interested on your take on that city - one of my all time faves as you probably already know. Not sure if you will be there when there is a Boca or River home game or even better them playing each other. Football might not be the best but the occasion is fantastic.

Testing, testing
Hi Cathy and Steve, Never responded to a blog before, how exciting. Hope the flight was good, and Hong Kong has old and new treats. Finished the mosaics this morning, looking good. Mmoloki and family coming round for a long weekend which is lovely. Hong Kong makes me think of noodles? Have fun, Mara xx

About time Steve actually retired!
Congratulations on the "big decision", I'm sure you won't regret it. After all what's to regret about travelling around the world having adventures instead of sitting in boring meetings with a load of suits! Have a great time. I'm impressed you will have time for a blog. Christine and Gary
