Welcome to Barry's Blog and my ramblings on various current events and family news.
Monday, 2 July 2012
Regular readers of this blog (are there any?) are probably wondering what has happened to the timed 5k runs that I took part in. Well they are still happening, unfortunately due to Church and other commitments I have not been able to take part in them. I am alsoe sorry tio say that my running took a bit of a dive. There were the May heavy rains followed by my LMF (lack of moral fibre) which meant that for a few weeks I did nothing. Fortunately I am now back pounding the streets again. I was hoping to take part in a run last Saturday, only to find that due to other activities there was no tun on 30th June!. Due to an induction study day at Wonersh (for the incoming first year), holidays and a business trip to Dallas it now looks like the end of July before I get an official timed run in.
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.
