Work on changes to the Lodge are proceeding, albeit much slower than we would have liked. We have now been down three times this year and have still not had a holiday! Each time we have been working. In fact we come home needing a break. The carpets have now been replaced, needed as they were damaged when the pipes burst in the big freeze last winter. The changes to the utility room are now complete. The new kitchen is almost done but when we last left the tiler was still working away. So hopefully after the next visit all will be shipshape; except that there is a problem with the new oven/grill unit and we have to arrange for that to be sorted. It really is never ending!
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.
