Having just launched the new Blog & Gallery John and I promptly went away for ten days which was hardly efficient but was just the way it turned out.
All being well things will start ticking over again. Meanwhile, a short bringing-up-to-date…
We had a wonderful family get-together in the French Alps (Les Gets in the Haute Savoie) not far from Geneva and within sight on a good day of Mont Blanc. The excuse – if we needed one – was to introduce our grandson Tom to snow. He is five now, and living in Sydney NSW had never seen snow.

Not so easy now we are at home with stairs and steps to negotiate at every turn but it is amazing how one learns to adapt and thanks to John, Sara, Derek and Tom there are many kind attendants. I have much more insight now into how it must be for the disabled and feel very blessed that my disability is only temporary.
