Happy New Year

A bit late I know but finally got round to a blog post. Christmas came and went. Phil worked on Christmas day and then on Boxing day we went to the Plum Pudding meeting at Mallory park.Having had some snow before Christmas we were not sure whether the meeting would go ahead but most of the snow cleared and the weather was not too bad. The sidecar outfit of the Westons was the most interesting thing there and although we enjoyed it there were just not enough classic machinery to hold our interest so next year, unless we get info to the contrary , we will probably give it a miss.  Another down point is the food available at the track which leaves an awful lot to be desired.Enough said.

The person sitting in the background looking a bit sick is Weston jnr. If you had seen this outfit race you would appreciate his concern. The most entertaining thing to watch.

And then it snowed, and snowed and snowed. Hard to remember when we had so much snow and it stayed around for so long. Had a couple of half days off work but school stayed open as much as possible.
Phils birthday was on the 13th and after having his swine flu jab Peter and Jessica joined us for a meal at Hoyzen which is always a real treat. As it is only at the other end of the village we decided to walk.Lots of laying snow and it continued to snow fairly heavily while we were in there. On the way home we stopped at the pub and there we stayed for another couple of hours.

The next day we  were back here to meet up with our daughter and her fiancee Jake. Haven't seen Jen for a long time and had never met Jake before. Another very pleasant few hours and then back home for a bit before heading out for an Indian meal with them. Finished off what Phil described as one of his best birthday's ever.
