When I was a young child (so many moons ago!) we moved to Surrey, Hawthorn Road, and every time I’ve seen Hawthorn trees since it transports me back to those days, remembering all the loved ones that are no longer here. So, to remembering my mum and dad, my cousin Michael, and our neighbours who […]
A special thanks to those that are posting on the blog and/or the FB group! We are moving to remember with you but I just don’t seem to be very good at posting.. Have set myself a goal to try and spend 10minutes each morning here, so we will have to wait and see! We’ve […]
This is a long path we take, when we lose anyone we love. As all of you reading this will know, losing someone through violent crime is something else again. This was not inevitable.

So at last I have a simple representation of the Tropic of Cancer and where it passes through! A big thanks to Mrs Wells – our friend from Durban days – for sorting this for me. It did prove beyond my capability..
A big thank you to those of you joining us on our virtual trip around the world, moving to remember our loved ones.. It is lovely to see the places you go and hearing your stories. We are hoping to complete our circumnavigation of the Tropic of Cancer before what would have been Gumby’s […]

After much discussion, we have decided to complete our circumnavigation of the earth by travelling around the Tropic of Cancer – once we have completed this, we will have travelled more than the distance of the Equator – 40,075km, with the Tropic of Cancer being 36,770km plus the distance of 8,000km already travelled, totalling 44,770km!
