A Christmas present delivered in March. Tickets to see The Lion King brought the family together in London. The Lion King was fabulous as usual and London provided a fun day.
Easter Sunday and there is excitement at Smith Towers. Four little cheeky monkeys are ready for Auntie Jo’s Egg Hunt.
And they’re off.
Easter and the Current Mrs Smith not to be outdone produces her legendary Simnel Cake.
Good Friday and what do you do? Go to the local supermarket and buy Hot Cross Buns? No, you get the ingredients and make your own.
We also remember our Dad, Henry George Smith, who slipped away 30 years ago, today.
Today is Brother Brian’s Birthday, seventy something.
Happy Birthday Bri. I expect he still has the bucket.
The cowards have struck again, this time in Brussels. It’s not written in any religious literature the killing of innocent people is just. Evil cannot win and will not.
Stay strong Belgium.
Today we remember Frank Smith who lost his life in France, 98 years ago this day.
.Already reunited with some of his family but joined this year with his Granddaughter Valerie.
Rest in Peace
First day of spring, the March Equinox and Smith Towers has Easter decorations up. It gets no better.
Happy 62nd Birthday Mr Perkins/Walker.
At Easter there are chicks, eggs, rabbits and all things chocolate. At Wichambreaux School there was plenty of everything. Under one hat there was even a Cheeky Monkey.
One lucky chap won all the Easter Eggs and had trouble carrying them. His brother on the other hand could only see cake and as it was chocolate devoured the lot, except for some chocolate that he decided to wear.
It appears that some children never grow-up and stay Cheeky Monkeys.
St Stephens Primary school was all at sea today but you wouldn’t have wanted to swim in it as it was full of jellyfish.
Today we commemorate the life of our Cousin Valerie (Liversidge, nee Smith) who has sadly passed away.
Daughter to Len and Alice Smith, mother to Michelle and Mark and a much loved Grandmother to Poppy and Sam.
Always putting others before herself she will be sadly missed by many.
Rest in peace Valerie.
The current Mrs Smith and I have been travelling for seven weeks and seen some marvellous things and met some wonderful people. Thank you one and all for making this trip so memorable.
Now is the time to say goodbye. “Goodbye, goodbye” as Pete & Dud would have said.
Some times James just takes the Micky. Other times he is just a cheeky Monkey
We could have Peaked this day?
Chinese New Year just keeps on giving.
Honkers a place of contrasts. There are plenty of busses in Mong Kok.
You can find peace and tranquility at the Chi Lin Nunnery and the Nan Lian Gardens.
Or you can go to the races at Happy Valley. Bonkers Honkers.
There’s a living to be had out of Victoria Harbour, Honkers.
