We had a great Christmas and New Year with Mum and Dad in Reading.
Christina seemed to enjoy herself, we certainly loved having her with us for our first Christmas back in England in 20 years! C. had to return to Canada on the 30th Dec. so she could see the New Year in with Mike, her boyfriend. Meanwhile Mum, Dad, Dave and I had a lovely meal (leg of lamb, boned and stuffed) and saw the New Year in with some card games. Then we went outside and greeted the neigbours who were setting off fireworks to celebrate not only the New Year but their 19 year old daughter’s engagement too!!
I drove Mum and Dad back to Knott End on 5th Jan 2003 and I am now staying here until Thurs.
Over Christmas and New Year we had loads of rain, so much that half of the U.K. must be under water!! Yesterday it turned cold (below freezing) and will remain cold until Thurs. Everything is white with frost, no snow!!
I am fully recoverd now and raring to go on the house. Lots of ideas!!! More on this later.
