Eternal Refuge gif + my name

I Iz Back

Yep, I had a great trip with Auntie Joyce.  Jiffy was such a good boy, both on the journey and over the weekend, including going to a coffee morning/prayer group.

The great news is, after 4 years my muscles coped with the journey, 278 miles each way - an answer to prayer, exercise and the support you have given ... Thank you.

I did take loads of photos (as you would expect from me), so they are uploading as I go to see Dad.  I am working later, so will try and catch up with you later, and post some photos.

If you had any excitement, please aim me in that direction ... till later *hugs*

Clacton Trip Photos 1

As I said in my last post we had a great trip. For the observant, I bought a new car .... I needed a new car as my last one was Mum & Dad's and the gear box was going.  On both the way there and back, we stopped twice, and here it is tea time on the way there.

My Aunt has never moved out of Essex, but was living in Barking until the early 70's when she and my grandparents moved to Clacton on the coast.  This is where she moved toCollapse )

We went to see Grandma and Granddad's grave.  Granddad had a stroke when he was 65 and was ill for those 10 years, not knowing anyone during that time.

We went into the town to sight-see and enjoy the sun ... as well as buying some postcards.  Here is Auntie Joyce, who is 2 years younger than Dad but is keeping well ... in fact she still drives.  And, of course, our intrepid explorer was also enjoying himself.
