Welcome to Barry's Blog and my ramblings on various current events and family news.
Monday, 4 April 2011
Two friends of ours Martin and Julia recently held a Barn Dance to thank people for their help and support - they had both lost a spouse within the past two years. It was a great evening full of laughter and memories; the only thing to do is look backward with gratitude and forward with hope.
I am a retired Consulting IT Specialist. I have been married to Julia for nearly 47 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 four in April 2017 and he now has a sister, Georgia, born on 29 December 2017.
I am ordained as a Permanent Deacon in the RC Church - date of ordination 8 June 2013 so am now in my fifth year of ministry.
