Last week we met up with friends from Australia; Pat and Angie. Pat was with us at RCET all those years ago and John, Maria, Martin and Julia joined us. We met at the Ock Mill, a Beefeater pub just outside Abingdon. What made it special was that they put us in a room of our own so we could chat and joke without disturbing others. A great reunion. We then went to John and Maria's for tea and cake. A great way to spend a day.

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.
