It was all down to Maria's to have a few drinks in celebration of the twins' birthday. Naturally it would be ungallant of me to tell you Maria's age, her being a lady, of course. So I will just tell you that John was 59 - and doesn't he look well on it? Not that you'll find much evidence on our photos, since photographer-in-chief, his daughter Margaret, didn't take any of her dad. But you can enjoy her other photos by clicking here.

Arthur, for whom nothing was ever too much trouble in this turbulent year and Jan who has been with me on this journey since day 1 (I mean the aborted PGCE mission in 2001-2)
left this life on January 27th 2008
Our Hearts ache with pride from the love that we share,
Your spirit forever lives on in our care.
Like the brightest star, a wonderful sight,
You light up our hearts as you wish us goodnight.
You lived for your family, and at your life's end,
A gift so special God helped you to send,
A beautiful smile for your loved ones to see,
A glimpse of happiness, your eyes held the key.
Back in the arms of the man that you love,
He will care for you always in heaven above.
We thank God for your life,
Happy times shared together,
God bless, rest in peace,
Our Angel forever
Lorraine Jones 5th February 2008.

to the ridiculous:
Well I'm finally getting around to posting some photos from the Silverdale trip. Yeah, I know it's like 3 months after the event but I have been up to my eyes in muck and bullets since then. That said, it has been a productive time for me in terms of my course. Isn't the sunset fabulous? Who would dream that it was early autumn in Morecambe Bay? As for the feet, no they didn't belong to a stray hobbit - they belong to Chis who was displaying them after a brief excursion into the Irish Sea. Click here to see more photos on Flickr.
I hope everyone had a good Christmas and New Year and may 2008 be full of good things for you. As for me, I am off to Seville as part of my course on Friday. I will be there for 4 weeks so I will try to post something from there. Wish me luck!
