I am still here…..

If I have any reader(s), thank you for your continuing kind attention. I hope that you have not been concerned about my silence for more than three months. We have been busy. We much enjoyed spending a week in England over Christmas. Many many thanks to Andy and Nicky and families for your excellent hospitality.

As usual, we all went to a Pantomime at the Theatre Royal in Bury St Edmunds. Mr Google says “Traditionally performed at Christmas, with family audiences, Pantomime is a popular form of theatre, incorporating song, dance, buffoonery, slapstick, in-jokes, audience participation, and mild innuendo”. Audience participation includes shouting phrases like “look behind you” and “oh yes it does”. This year was “Dick Whittington and his cat”. Issy got to help on stage!

Oh yes you do…


January was notable for significant SNOW in Charleston, a very rare event.


I’d be grateful if anyone can tell me how better to fit photos into the text. They seem to have their own plans when posted.

We took our usual February trip “down under” for 3 weeks with many wonderful friends in so special places. Thanks Tony and Michelle for your terrific organization. We started with Luke and Monique’s wedding at the Edwards farm near Sydney, followed by celebrating Paul’s 60th birthday, a lovely few days in Canberra, then a houseful of bestest friends in a large house in the Mornington Peninsula south of Melbourne, where there are stunning golf courses. 


And some great wineries and restaurants 

Some of us finished by flying to King Island, Tasmania to play two awesome courses. Golfers should check them out, Cape Wickham and Ocean links. Ireland on steroids.

And so back home late February expecting spring weather, but finding a cold spell. It is only now warming up, in time for the Masters….
