Tom
We loved our trip up to Scotland over last Summer. But we realised that the longer legs (24 to 48 hours) were tough with a baby on board. We realised that crossing the Atlantic would not be fun. So we have postponed our big trip until Stan is secure on his feet.

We are making the most of being based back on the Isle of Wight for a year or two. I (Tom) am completing my training to become a secondary school teacher, Phil is back at work part time while Stan is making lots of friends and attending nursery for a couple of days a week.

There are some new photos in the gallery.
