We’re back at last


Back at last after a very busy summer season; made worse by my internet connection being in a very dodgy state. So no postings since May, and so much that has happened and could have been written about.

Apologies if you’ve been waiting for the latest installment on “Buffy”, or for news of what’s happening around here; we’ll be doing our best to get postings in over the next few days, and get ourselves up to date.

In the meantime why not check out our Guestbook for comments from those who’ve visited – http://hirondelleholidaysguestbook.wordpress.com/
