Good morning 

                               HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL WHO DROP BY 

Well I had a great Christmas I hope you all had a lovely time, I have been away staying with friends in Eastleigh, near Southampton. I managed to get to see family and friends. The river where we used to have picnics nearby was flooded and its been years since it has been like that. My friends, who live near the river, thought it might get up to the road but it didn't so that was good, On the night before I was due to come back my daughter and her daughter took me to see Aladdin at the Mayflower in Southampton Duncan James [from Blue]  & Joe Pasquale were in the pantomime, and I can tell you I have never laughed so much in a long time and sure needed it.

I want to get back to all the challenges I have missed doing them over Christmas so today will be the first on the year,
