Mad Dogs and Englishman
This Boxing Day we were not out in the midday sun, but rather the midday rain. We spent Christmas with our youngest son Lawrie who lives in Halesowen. On Boxing Day we went for a walk on Clent Hill. Despite th rain, cold and mud it was most enjoyable; we are a peculiar lot!
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.
