My usual weekly jaunt to Gloucestershire & although the sky is overcast at Duntisborne Leer it’s actually a rather pleasant day #ontheroad #outandabout #cotswolds #wintermorning #cotswoldvillage #countrylife #escapetheratrace

Supper tonight is a Fish Gratin- creamy white sauce, good dash of Pernod, cod, caramelised onions, peas- topped with charlotte potatoes & cheese. Perfect fare on a cold winter evening #homecooking #supper #fishdishes #fishgratin #goodcompany #conversation #enjoythemovement

Evening viewing ‘My Generation’ produced & narrated by Michael Caine who takes you a vivid & inspiring personal journey through 1960’s London. If you lived through amazing period of creativity or weren’t even born, this film is a highly enjoyable journey through this ‘Youth Quake’ when movers & shakers shook society up! #1960s #michaelcaine #1960sfashionphotography #1960sstyle #1960smusic #1960sfilm #moversandshakers #youthquake
