Back to Blantyre

img_3085I’ve had the most amazing, relaxing week on holiday and now back home in sunny Blantyre this evening. Doing what I like best, I took my computer (and scanner) away and spent much of the week writing about Blantyre.

I managed to research SO many interesting articles, lining them up here, scheduled daily right through to Easter 2017!! You’ll only ever see new content, new photos and new posts here, building Blantyre’s history archives at Blantyre Project.

I’m thankfully off work this week too and now looking forward to time with my wife and daughter during the school holidays. Despite a busy end of the year coming up at normal daytime work and the Blantyre Festive Event coming up, I have slipped back to multiple posts per day, which is manageable for now.

I have some amazing things coming to this page in the next few weeks and a couple of announcements too. Thanks again for all the emails, enquiries, requests and information that floods in each day.

This was my “office” last week, looking across to the ocean and Skye, as the waves crashed on the shore in the distance. Nice.

  1. Wilma and her parents lived next door to my sister Alice. Perfect neighbours and a lovely family. I remember Wilma from Calder Street school.
    Chatted with her parents a few times over the fence on some of my trips. 1982 when I was back for the Junior Cup final, which of course, the ‘VICS won! A bit more than a chat, more like a blether!

  2. I am in touch with Hughina now and again via e mail, I met up with Hughina a few years ago for lunch at the Avonbridge in Hamilton during one of my trips. A lovely lady.
    She has 2 sons who share my passion in football.
