Welcome to Barry's Blog and my ramblings on various current events and family news.

We have just returned from a 10 day Pilgrimage to the Holy Land; more of this in subsequent posts. This means we managed to miss all the excitement of the election voting results and the hung parliament. So we have returned to find that we have a coalition government. I have not quite absorbed what this will mean for the country; no doubt we will find out soon enough. It all promises to be very exciting, will no doubt keep us all amused and undoubtedly very poor!
I am a retired Consulting IT Specialist. I have been married to Julia for 45 years and we are blessed with four children; David, Andrew, Lawrie and Hélèna. Not forgetting the "other half's"; Gaew married to Andrew, Lawrie's partner Emma and Hélèna's husband Sam.
In addition we have a grandson - Henry Thomas, son of Lawrie and Emma. Henry was three in April - time flies
I am now ordained as a Permanent Deacon in the RC Church - date of ordination 8 June 2013 so am now in my third year of ministry.
