Welcome to Barry's Blog and my ramblings on various current events and family news.
Saturday, 23 July 2016
Tomorrow, Sunday 24 July we will have been married for 45 years. The family are gathering for the celebration. Lawrie, Emma and Henry have just arrievd. Helena and Sam are en-route. They had some car issues which delayed them setting off. I just hope that they have no further problems or hit too much traffic.
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.
