excitement of December with all that went on
then, its been nice to slow down a bit and
relax into the New Year. Highlights in January
were, of course, our birthdays and we went out
for a lovely meal at the Kingslodge Inn in Durham
one of the few places where we can take
Tara to enjoy the celebrations with us (although,
in fairness, she slept through most of it!) Its
been a long time since we went out for a birthday
meal, with everything thats been going on,
and we thoroughly enjoyed it!
Along with the birthday came the pension AND THE
BUS PASS for Ian! We always feel that the bus
pass is something of a milestone to achieve
and now we have both achieved it.
Ian had a haircut (he has one annually whether he
needs it or not) and the rest of the month was
taken up mostly with sittings, HoG & UTC
meetings and so on. Ian attended (virtually) the
UHI Research Conference, which was excellent and
as Deputy Lieutenant, the Holocaust Memorial
Celebration in Darlington (see photo above). He
also set up his new radio equipment and erected
his aerials (see M0KEO from the menu on the left
for details and pictures).
