Finally an update!

06 July 2017

It’s been a while since the last update and if my photos were easier to deal with I’d probably be a little more motivated! I’ve posted a few but must admit to not really taking many photos so far this summer. There are some photos of the girls District Sports Day, some golf shots and a day at the beach with Millie’s friends for her birthday, which is next week (July 11th)

The girls have a few weeks of school still to go before we head off to Canada July 27th, and then we’re going to Greece for a week in August with Gill’s family to celebrate Liz’s 75th birthday. Unfortunately we won’t make it back to Val d’Isere this summer but we do have a fantastic summer to look forward to! Meanwhile, Millie and I have been playing lots of golf, while Katie is seriously into her gymnastics and has now taken up Aerial Hoops. She also has a trampoline in the garden, which she’s been after for ages and we finally gave in. It’s been keeping her off her electronic devices and it’s been a huge success! I’ll get some photos of her in action and post them shortly.

Gill still can’t play tennis due to her wrist and it’s a real disappointment for her. She loves her tennis and it’s her main form of fitness, and to make matters worse it bothers her at work as well. What a bummer! I had some good news on my hip x-ray which showed there hasn’t been any real deterioration since 2010 when I last had it looked at. Gill was spot on with her diagnosis saying my pain wasn’t coming from the joint, which is great news as I thought I might need an immediate hip replacement and was really worried about next winter. It needs constant stretching and occasionally gives me some serious grief after painting or too much gardening, but it’s much better than a month or so ago.

Stay tuned and I’ll try to update a little more regularly!
