Celebrating our Two Year Travel Birthday

11th July 2014. We’ve been two years on the road – 104 weeks, or 730 days – where has it gone?!!

Celebrating two years on the road this week with a 'cake' in the BArbie Cafe and a supper at Flavours restaurant, Taipei

And now we’re embarking on Year 3 …. But only for a month, then we’ll be home, which we all have mixed feelings about! Can’t wait to see all our friends and family, enjoy some home comforts and we’re pretty happy about enjoying (hopefully) a pleasant British summertime. More

Life is not a Dress Rehearsal

Back to school without the kids!

This week I’ve been on two training courses – both courtesy of Living Social – one to learn about WordPress (web design & build,  on which we’ve designed and built this blog site) and one an SLR photography course.

The WordPress course was my idea to help kickstart my involvement in Martin’s business and I knew whatever I learned would fall way short More

Daddy, what about Christmas presents?

Christmas in the Clark household is a bit like a big pass the parcel game, lots of unwrapping and a brief moment of delight at getting something (or a disappointed oh?).

Given that Ben and Zoe were back to playing with their (old) Lego by the Queen’s speech and making a spy mission kit out of the cardboard boxes that the presents came in it crossed our minds, not for the first time, that perhaps our kids are a bit spoiled. More
