October update

August through to October has been a relatively quiet time for gaining new website design work, but busier than usual for maintaining existing client's websites. There have been some new websites built including one for an exterior cleaning service and one still in the design phase for British Landscape Gardens but on the whole its been quiet.

Part of the reason is that I have also been taking more than usual holiday breaks to travel around parts of the UK, as I spent a good part of my spare time converting a campervan, starting last Summer and completing the project this Summer.

It's been enjoyable getting away and seeing some of the beautiful places we have been to, including some of the amazing countryside in the Yorkshire Dales, Northumberland and coastal towns in Dumfries and Galloway.

Staycation has been the buzzword this last year or so and there has been a boom in motorhome and campervan sales in 2020 and 2021 as more and more people take to the road and enjoy this type of holiday. However, I still miss going abroad and plan to get away to see my family in Italy and my new baby granddaughter in Prague. Hopefully soon, but it may be next year now.

Fingers crossed, 2022 will be a better year for travel abroad, with less hassle and expense for families and regular travellers.
