GATHERINGS IN EMSWORTH - OCTOBER 2008
Here are a few snaps,
mainly of the kids, from a big family get together at
11 Bridge Road on Sunday 5th October. The original
plan was for Mary and George to come over for Sunday
lunch, but the event gradually escalated to the point
where we had a total of 16 people here: Jean and
Brian, Danny, Karen, Lisa and baby Joe, Mary, George
and Lola, Will, Rachel, Freddy, Nell and Reggie, plus
Helen and Gareth who came down from Bristol for the
day. Phew! Jean and Mary did the cooking, a pudding
was provided by Rachel. Baby Joe was a big attraction
and everyone got a chance to hold him. He stood up to
it all very well! A great day.

OF SCILLY HOLIDAY AUG - SEP 2008
Jean and Brian had a
week's holiday with Mary, George and Lola on the tiny
island of St Agnes in the Isles of Scilly. Apart from
the boat trip on Scillonian 111 from Penzance to St
Mary's, the holiday was very enjoyable, though we
might have wished for a bit more sunshine. We rented a
chalet on Troy Town Farm where we enjoyed fresh farm
produce! Here are a few snaps from the
