been a while since the last one of these, and after such an awesome sail around
the coast and into
Town we are going to struggle to keep the interest of those adrenalin junkies amongst you. So just settle
In for some chill out time, after all that’s what all this cruising is supposed to be about. Jacky and I had
special celebration just after xmas and it was a dilemma as to what to do and
where. It would have been great for Jacky to have come out and seen some of
family and friends. So I decided to fly back to
Vacation and not nearly 2.1/2 years, and it was lovely to be back amongst my family for Nick`s and Jo`s
Birthdays and Christmas day. New year celebrations where spent in Lymington with J and Clare and friends.
So now for the big event on the
8th of January it was our 25 wedding anniversary and one week later
it would be our fifth birthday’s. Nick and Jo had bought us tickets to see a
8th and we went up their by bus, our hotel was booked in
Knightsbridge and from
We could take a walk down the Kings Road Chelsea for one last chance to find a dress for the party organised on the 12th, That is the beauty of a trip to London for us country folk the shops are far better
Stocked with interesting goods and so the lady was not to be disappointed. The show was very good
Hotel was great right in the middle of everything infact we spent the whole two days walking everywhere
We needed to go.
And so to the party, on Thursday evening we had two calls from people one to cancel and the other
To warn us that one person had been ill but was hoping to be fit to come, so we were a little apprehensive
That everything would be in place and everyone would cancel due to sickness, But on the night it was only
A few that could not make it. We had a fantastic evening with friends and family Jacky and Jo looked
absrelutly gorgeous and the party was a great success. Thanks for all those great presents, we now have
enough champagne for the next big occasion.

We had made the right choice having our 25 wedding anniversary at home with friends that had known us for a long time their where even a few that had been at the wedding at Sopley Church. So many friends had
Supported us through the last few years with out that help and support we would have found things very
Difficult to keep everything together. So this is a big thank you to all of you who have been their for us.
Being that we are the York family even after Nick`s then Jo `s birthday, Xmas day, New year, wedding
Anniversary we still had our two birthdays on the 15 and 16 of January, this gave us the excuse to disappear
Social hours for work and the early part of January is not a time when anything is going on so virtually everywhere was closed. But we did manage to get B&B in a beautiful Chateau with a lovely French couple.
Once again my French was tested and found to be wanting.
