Swiss Mountains

Vodka for Breakfast!

Whilst in Switzerland last weekend it was Jacqueline's birthday.  To celebrate we had Green Vodka Liqueur with Ice Tea to start the day.  The combination made for a strange olive coloured drink but it was rather nice.  So if you are visiting the Doncaster show this weekend and want to bring me Vodka & ice tea for breakfast to celebrate my birthday - I won't say no!

This Karmann Beetle Cabriolet belongs to Jacqueline's husband Marcel.  This car is older than me, it is 41 years old but still great fun to go out in.

Radio Silence

When you read this I will be in Switzerland and won't be accessing my blog, Twitter or in fact anything online.

I am over here to teach in Atelier Rageboge in Winterthur, not too far from Zurich.  I don't return home until late on Tuesday so although you will see a couple of pre-planned blog posts you won't see me popping up online anywhere else.

So, apologies for the radio silence, but then again maybe you'll like the quiet!

Julie and I will be at Doncaster on 13th & 14th July so we hope you will be able to come along and see us and remember to bring your Membership keyfob to receive your discount.
