18 Sleeps to Christmas

Burton Latimer saw the meeting of 14 relatives for a very interesting day yesterday. My cousin Helen had arranged for us to meet at The Heritage Centre, where they had a most interesting display of WW1 items.
Helen had organised for there to be commemorative stones made for her parents [ my Mum's brother and his wife] and our Uncle Charles [ another of Mum's brothers]. In typical Helen's style she had brought along her fathers old wind up record player complete with 78 record. Chris wound it up and the Church yard echoed to a record of bell ringing!

It was a nice meeting as now all five siblings  have commemorative stones in the same Church yard.

What a week of ups and downs

Sunday started so well as I went to church but then I hit an uneven curb in the church yard. The damage did not look too bad but it ruined ...
