Sarah: Still taking exams, but seems sheerful enough and surprisingly still enjoying life (I think). Well, she is 16 now and the years seem to have flown by. When I dropped her birthday photos into the folder I had created for her years ago it brings it home how quickly they grow. This morning I sat on the bridge throwing pine cones into the river, I remember doing that with Sarah (not so long ago). Yesterday, as part of Sarah’s birthday present we booked for her to go to Majorca with Charlotte and a friend for the week (all inclusive of course). They fly the day after her last exam. We had a BBQ for her on Saturday evening, she had a sleep over with friends in a tent on the Friday night, and then went to Leicester to shop on Saturday morning. Charlotte, Suraj and Lucas came down on Saturday afternoon to celebrate the big day.
Charlotte: I was told off the other day that I hadn’t mentioned Charlotte in my blogs for some time and that I had better do so next time! She was promoted at work (don’t know what to) and she has been busy in the garden. She is going on holiday to Majorca with Sarah. She drives a Landrover Discovery and is still lovely, though starting to henpeck her Dad!
Sue: Unfortunately she has got another dose of chest infection and is laying in bed, dosed up with anti-biotics. I took her to Kettering hospital yesterday morning and they gave her a thorough examination, blood, X-ray, ecg etc. and then prescribed Erythromycin and bed (which should mean rest, but we shall see how long that lasts). She did manage to celebrate Sarah’s birthday before succumbing and with no school this next week, she has a chance to rest.
Jamie: He has a Matiz (hire car) while his Peugot is repaired (though there was very little damage to it), but because it is Jamie he has managed to crunch the hire car (his friend backed into it). I am glad I have lived a relatively uncomplicated and simple life, well at least up until Jamie was born. It will interesting when he has to return the Matiz. Next episode in a weeks time!
Nan: She is fit and well and at present attending a wedding in Wales. She will probably stay with her sister (Josie) until she gets fed up and then go home, could be after a few days or a few weeks, you can never tell.
Lucas and Suraj: They are fit and healthy and like me, have not done a lot except continue to be! We intend to continue as such as long as possible.
