How kind you all are! We are delighted to join you all and thank you for the warmth of your welcome.

We're still laughing at the chicken of depression (thank you Nickie)
delighted to meet you on line again Chez; always happy to hear from our much loved youngsters and their friends. Looking forward to meeting Mo & Pete at the November Farmers Market in Newbury - will do our best to get along.

Shura - how lovely to hear from you..... last time I saw you you were at uni and with ribbons on your knees to boot! Sorry we didn't meet at the blessing - only on the trip home did Jon say "wasn't it lovely to see Shura again". Got the reaction who, what, where but truly sorry - we didn't recognise you (ribbons might have been a hint) but of course you've grown up now!

Hello
I do believe I gave a pekin lad of yours a home a few years back. He was rather a handsome lad we named Ollie.

wow! I don't remember the ribbons. It was nice to see Jon again too. It was a lovely weekend full of meetings with people I hadn't seen for ages. I did see you there but I don't think we had an opportunity to chat.

it was a rockclub night Sherbs, you had your black suede knee boots on with silk scarves tied at the knees and I made some throwaway comment about morris-dancing that made mum and dad giggle, and for some reason they've never quite forgotten it

Ooooh. Speaking of the blessing Sally, did I ask you whether or not your vicar and hubby had gone to Sidmouth folk festival? Ben thought he saw them all morrised up.

We've got some lovely photos from the blessing, and it occurs to me to ask - how many downsizers who know Sally have seen the photos of just how beautiful she looked for her wedding? (Sorry Sally, but you were a beautiful bride and Gareth scrubbed up pretty good too )

Please put them up.

Some of us who were unable to atend are STILL waiting to see all the photos that were taken, not only of the beautiful wedding, but also of the Christening too.

Okay, watch this space - I'll give hubby a (gentle) kick by way of reminder... Apologies, but we've both been flat out organising and getting back to some (very necessary) hard painting/drawing post the move - wouldn't be so much of an issue but he's a perfectionist, photographs everything in 'RAW' then has to spend hours post production... (Plus I'll have to check maximum file size having not posted pics before - some of these files are silly big!)

It's starting to be like living here. Very hard sometimes to remember who's related to whom...
