  1. Hi Deb, I haven’t been to Ireland but your London, York, Harrogate photos brought back a lot of old memories for me. Thanks for sharing them.

      Hi Pam
      Great to hear from you. Those pics took me so long to load up and I had to have such a lot of help from Peta! I was very disappointed at the delay but what can you do if you don’t know what you’re doing? Also, in setting up the photos the wording I had on each one hasn’t come up and in some all of the script is missing and on others just parts. Makes the whole thing look/sound a bit silly but at least the pictures are there so that’s something.
      Today I wrote and wrote and wrote to get my holiday ‘story’ finished only to lose the lot when I lost internet connection! The kids tell me I can do it in a Word document and then copy/paste. Back to the drawing board and so much for my hope of having it all complete this weekend! Ho hum.
      Take care, hope all is well with you
      Love

  2. Hi Deborah, there are some nice pics there. I haven’t been to York before but think I may have to make the effort one day. Those old buildings are lovely.
    Shame about your holiday story, bloody computers. I’ll look forward to reading it when you’ve redone it. Hagg.

      Hi Hagg, great to hear from you! Glad you liked the pics. I can’t imagine that anyone wouldn’t love York, so be sure to go up there if you get the chance. It was very, very interesting. One hint though. Don’t pay good money to go into the Ghost House. There weren’t even any ‘gimmicks’. It was pure ‘rip off’! I just loved it.
      My journal is complete as it now stands. I have had so many glitches but while I would love to have been able to keep it running while I was away (and therefore have much more detail), I couldn’t and so now it’s summarised and the best I’m going to get I think.
      Thanks for ‘dropping by’. How’s the family?
      Love
      Deborah

    Hi Deborah,

    Loved looking at your pictures of your trip and reading your write-ups. It’s been fascinating to hear your opinions of the things that we take for granted here – scenery, buildings, hedgerows!! I’ve recently been contacted by cousins in Australia who I never knew existed! They’ve invited us over to visit so we just might make the trip to your country one day.

    Glad you had such a lovely time.

      Well hello you two!
      How was your holiday? I hope you’re back home and well.
      Your country is absolutely beautiful! I wish I could have posted descriptions with the photos because it was all so lovely and I’d like to have been able to describe things. It wasn’t just about how things looked but also how they felt. It was amazing.
      We are all guilty of not noticing our own ‘backyard’ ( I definitely don’t want to notice my own personal backyard as it is at the moment!!!). I have the loveliest drive to and from work each day and each day I think ‘I should take photos of all this’ but of course I don’t and haven’t so I just know within myself how pretty it is (moreso in the winter/autumn than now). I make a point of noticing though.
      Thanks for taking the time to post a comment. It was great to hear from you ~ don’t hear much of you these days.
      Love
      Deborah

        PS ~ where in Aust are your convict cousins? You’re always welcome here. I honestly mean that. I’ll get the spare bed made!

        My Mum’s Aunty met an Australian soldier in England during WW1. After the war she went back to Aus with him to live on a cattle station in Mareeba,Queensland. It’s her family there who have contacted me as I’ve traced my family tree and put it on the internet. They googled themselves!

        We might make the trip one day – listen out for the knock on your door!

      • londonorbust Says:

        Well, for such a big, big world it’s rather small! Mareeba is in Far North Queensland. It’s a million miles from here but guess what? My sister used to live there!!!! How’s that?
        What are the names of your rellies, they might know each other. Now that would be tooooooo spooky if it were the case. Suffice to say that going from FNQ to South Australia could be a costly exercise. Internal flights here aren’t that cheap although with advance bookings you can pick up some real bargains. To get from there to here though would mean a number of flights at the best of times however to pick up the cheapies, it would be a matter of hopping from place to place.
        Crazy!

      • londonorbust Says:

        PS Mareeba is not a big place either which makes it even more coincidental.

      • How strange! It seems like we’re destined to have a connection. My second cousins are Narelle Blakeney and Juneve Stables. Our mothers were first cousins. Their mother was Betty Jones, she died in Mareeba in 2004. Both Narelle and Juneve have children and grandchildren. I hope your sister does know them. Imagine me telling them that!

    Wow Debs, phew, I have just had a few wee tears, what a time we had eh? mind you, I should get your camera fixed, it seems to take wider and older don’t you think?

      Hi Ange
      So glad to hear from you. You made it home then? I thought you may have run off with some randy Spaniard (or whatever sort of people inhabit your holiday hideaway!
      Everytime I look at the pics, it’s like I’m there and can hear the sounds and remember what we talked about etc. It was fantastic!
      About that camera. I have certainly detected some kind of ‘issue’ with the size of the lens (or whatever determines size!) and was quite worried about it til I saw Vinod’s pic on the forum and realised that he has an even BIGGER problem with his camera! Oh me. Oh my ……….
      Catch up soon
      Love
      Deborah

  5. Looks like you had a great time. I went to England in 1981 (a whole lifetime ago) and saw some of those places, I also loved York!!! You must have come home exhausted, you covered a lot of distance in a short time. It helps when you know someone to show you around, and it looks like you met some lovely people. Looking forward to catching up with you sometime soon.

    • londonorbust Says:

      Hi Tracey
      This is a nice surprise! How come I didn’t know you’d been in England? Were you alone? Having been to the same places, you will fully understand where I’m coming from in my ramblings although ~ you would barely have been out of school I’m sure!

  6. Well Deb, it all looks fantastic and sounds like you saw everything you could whilst there. You have made some great friends and you will look back at your time there a lot. Every time you see something in the paper and on television it will transport you back. I will catch up with you soon. Love you xoxoxoxox

    • londonorbust Says:

      It has all been wonderful, Chris that’s for sure. As for being transported back ~ do you think that’s a good idea? That’s how we got here (well, not the South Australians!) in the first place!
      Love

  7. I’m sorry to have to tell you Lorraine but poor old Deb was a bit confused. I didn’t live in Mareeba but worked there for a few years. Unfortunately I don’t know your relatives but that doesn’t take away from the fact that this is a small world.

  8. Love your photo journal Deborah. Can imagine how you felt all in awe of everything and absorbing it all in. What a wonderful opportunity. Love to you from Sue and Linds xx
