Sad end to 2011

Sadly Gil’s stepfather, Stan, died just before Christmas so we were off to South Wales for his funeral. His Mum is now on her own in a care home but she seems to have settled in o.k.
As a result we decided not to spend Chistmas in Wales so we were able to do our usual 4 mile run round our village in our Father Christmas outfits on Christmas Day morning. The weather was fine and it was good fun with lots of cars hooting at us and we were wishing ‘Happy Christmas’ to the few people we saw out walking.
Friends Richard and Betty joined us for dinner on New Years Eve and, afterwards, we went to the party at our village Social Club. They stayed the night and we were able to go to church together the next day.
