Fun and games on the way home
We had a "fun" trip home. We went via Stockport, not the most direct route from Halesowen to Bromley, to take Helena home. The M6 was one very long car park. After a couple of hours of frustration I took a side road. To cut a long story short I went through a puddle was hiding a very large pothole which took out the two off-side tyres. We had to be recovered and get tow replacement tyres so we eventually reached Stockport at 22:30 instead of the anticipated 16:30. So much for a speedy detour. I am not attempting to recover the cost of the tyres from the local council - watch this space.
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.
