What a great weekend!

07 June 2013

We had a fantastic time last weekend visiting Caroline and Charlie and their twin daughters Amelia and Grace, at their fabulous home. The girls had a wonderful time playing together and I spent an afternoon watching Charlie keep wicket for his local team. It was a brilliant weekend with great company, excellent food and beautiful surroundings. Thanks ever so much Charlie and Caroline!

It’s been wonderful to finally have some beautiful sunny weather, although it has drizzled most of today. I’ve been out playing some golf (badly unfortunately) and Millie is on a school trip to Iron Bridge, which apparently is a fantastic living museum of Victorian life, so we’ve both made the most of the good weather. Unfortunately Katie is in school and Gill has been working but the forecast looks great for the weekend.

Andreas turned 40 in May and Tansy has organized a fabulous trip for him in the UK in early July. She has tickets to the Men’s Semi-Finals, which is always the best day of Wimbledon, followed by a pre-race day out crewing on Jeremy R’s racing yacht, then a day on a track with a professional race car instructor followed by a few laps in Peter B’s Ferrari. Tansy organized it all without Andreas getting wind of it so it was a total surprise. Well done Tansy and have a great time Andreas!

Chris and Suzanne popped by for a visit yesterday and they’re off back to Normandy today and Suzanne will be heading to Australia next week for the summer. She will be working towards her Australian Ski Instructors exams while Chris manages the Gite.
