Hectic Weekend - then a ramble in the Surrey Hills

 It was a rather hectic weekend , Saturday we were up early to drive to Wonersh for one of my study days. We got back at about 6:30; changed and were out by 7:15 to go the Catenian New Year Party. This was a formal do so we had to change quickly. It was a great evening; one of those times that for no specific reason flowed and was much better than previous years.

Some of the happy throng

Sunday after Mass we drove to Mugswell to meet up with the Old Askean Rambling Club to join them for a 4 mile ramble across the Surrey Hills. It was a perfect afternoon, the company was great and the views were grand.  It will give you some idea of the age of the group when I say that Julia and I were two of the youngest in party. Most remarkable was Victor; he left school aged 18 in 1942 to join the RAF. He will be 88 this year and I just hope that I am still doing walks like this in 24 years time!
