By Mr Fredyes I remember him well! I forget his girlfriend's name and recognise you from your photo. Me and my Brother Rob(r.i.p) used to go to Wakefield Tiff's(Mecca) remember The Dance team well. I think Ian Gourley has a bar or had a bar in Ibiza or Menorca called tin Pan alley. Last saw him at the Metrodome when he flew over for his Dad's funeral quite a few years ago Good times
Regards Fred Ward.
By Alison HOh that is so beautiful Pip! 18 hours for you to get to the mountain retreat on a bus though. I broke my ankle 4/7 and am struggling sitting on a sofa for 3 hours at a time !!
Aw that’s really kind of you offering the courtesy of your mountain retreat. It does sound the perfect place to unwind from absolutely everything, thing is, I probably would never want to come back to the UK ha ha
It is lovely hearing how you have a nice life over there with Melly, Widy & Tiwi.
Stay Happy Pip
Take care & bye for now
By Pip SmithIdyllic may be a bit strong, but a good life yes. Widy and Tiwi are a blessing, but live in Jakarta and we are an 18 hour bus journey away. Which leads me to extending the offer to you and all who knew me, to stay with us in our mountain retreat. Its close to Jogja (Yogyakarta) which I think is the nicest city in Indonesia, which also means that its close to Candi Borobudur and even closer to Candi Prambanan. Nevertheless it is very remote, no bars, no western food, no supermarkets, no doctors, no transport to speak of, poor mobile and internet coverage, but beautiful and peaceful (see photo).
