We’ve been to visit Fi, Wim and Stephanie in their new house in Amsterdam. The girls loved playing with each other, the dads loved sitting in brown bars drinking Belgian beer, and the mums probably had a good time too.

On the Sunday we watched the arrival of Sinterklaas by boat from Spain into Amsterdam […]


I’ve been to Singapore for two weeks with work. I didn’t get much time to see the sights, but I did get to go diving in Pulau Aur in Malaysia over the weekend.

Morocco Photos

We’re back from our Morocco holiday, and I’ve uploaded the photos. Pip’s going to blog her holiday diary with the full story, but for now you can see my photos on the gallery here (page 2 here), and Gin’s photos here.

Here are a few to keep you going…


Dom and Asia’s Wedding, Poland August 2008

Dom and Asia became Mr & Mrs Collison in Torun, Poland on 23rd August 2008. We all flew out on the Thursday morning and spent a couple of days enoying the city.

We stayed in a fantastic hotel with two-storey rooms, where […]

The whole summer in one post

Err, sorry, we’ve been a bit busy.

Anyway, here’s the whole summer (now officially over – I needed bike lights on the way home from work tonight) presented for your convenience in a single post.

We’ve been to three weddings – Mark & Tania’s, Ben & Fran’s, and Dom & Asia’s.


We’ve been camping […]

Le Camping

We’ve just got back from France, where we camped for the weekend with my Mum and Dad. They’re just finishing their 2008 Grand European Tour and hadn’t seen Laurie for around four months.


We went down to Kent on Thursday night after work, then caught a ferry from Dover first thing Friday morning. We […]

Wales (finally)


We spent a week in a cottage in Snowdonia, North Wales, at the start of June. Pip’s family (Gin, Jo, Sally, David and the beagles), and Frances, came for the long weekend. Jo H and Alex replaced them for the rest of the week.


On Father’s Day we climbed Mount Snowdon, and Sally […]

The Tale of Camping, Bogs, Winchester Cathedral

Pip, Laurie and I went camping in the New Forest for the May Day Bank Holiday weekend. It was the first time we’d taken Laurie camping, but she loved it.

I sank into a bog we were trying to cross to get to the pub, deep enough that Laurie in her carrier on my back […]

Summer Isles


I’ve uploaded my photos from our Scottish holiday. A 1,500 mile round trip in the car to Reiff, near Achiltibuie, in the far NW Highlands of Scotland.

We drove up in three days, stopping in Milton Keynes and Edinburgh, and breaking the journey on my birthday at Monkey Forest. For the way back […]

Lakes Photos

I’ve been hard at work in Photoshop fixing up the photos from our holiday in Coniston, in the Lake District, early in September. The results are all now posted on the wheresbarney gallery. I’ve stitched some panoramas into QTVR movies, and I’m quite pleased with the results (here, here, here and here)…

There’s even my […]
