Absolutely lovely.

Get in!

ribbon-black_68The 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.

Saturday 19th

IMG_8410Happy 62nd Birthday Mr Perkins/Walker.

Friday 18th

IMG_2212At 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. IMG_2222His 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.


Tuesday 15th

IMG_1755St Stephens Primary school was all at sea today but you wouldn’t have wanted to swim in it as it was full of jellyfish.

Monday 14th

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.

IMG_2132The 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.
