A Few Days in Devon
We recently spent a few days in our holiday lodge in Devon. On the first day we met up with Lawrie, Emma and Henry who were departing to go home. So we managed to see our grandson, alebit for a few hours.
We went to Castle Drogo which is currently being refurbished or rather repaired as it leaks rather a lot!
The "Tent" over the Castle
We also went to Knighthayes Court which is rather special with lovely grounds and some fine artifacts.
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.
