How the other half lives
We were "t'up north" over the weekend hunting for a wedding dress for Helena. In Alderley Edge we saw a sign outside the local off-license (wine merchants) " Two bottles of Cristal Champagne for £250". Needless to say we bought a couple of cases!
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.
