Our Christmas Letter for 2019

It seems no time at all since our last Newsletter, yet here we are again, putting pen to paper (or at least, fingers to keyboard) to tell how the family has got on in the last year.

Bryan and Laura are well on the way with their re-building project, and expect to be finished soon - Laura will be very happy to get her kitchen back!

Owen started at senior school last year, and managed to get himself on local news on his first day!

Karen and Dan moved this year to Tunbridge Wells, and are presently renting a house near the town centre while trying to find a permanent home.  Vanessa continues to child-mind on a regular basis, and the journey doesn’t take much longer than going to Earlsfield, where they used to live, even though it’s over twice as far.  However, parking is a nightmare!  Karen continues her job with The Royal Ballet School and Dan’s business continues to prosper. The children seem to have settled nicely into their new schools/kindergarten.

Sarah and Tom’s son, Zachary,’s speech has improved dramatically over the last year, and his understanding is very good.  He is also very musical. Chris plays a nursery rhyme on the piano, and Zachary sings along pretty well in tune - no matter which key it’s in. Sarah is just starting a new job at the local Leisure Centre.

Vanessa and Chris carry on as usual, doing weddings and funerals, and Vanessa continuing to see hypnotherapy clients – and spending a lot of time supporting our church in various ways. We have again supported the Sunday afternoon teas at St. Lawrence’s, making lots of cakes.  In fact we are now running Talk and Teas once a month throughout the winter months, with interesting talks arranged.

The North Downs Consort (our chamber choir) continues with our new director - unfortunately not so popular with the singers as the last one due to his different style of rehearsal.  We have just performed our Autumn/Christmas concert – the third concert for the year.

This summer we had our usual break in Oliver’s caravan near Great Yarmouth for a week, and visited a couple of National Trust places in Norfolk.

Vanessa and her sister Terri went for a week’s holiday in Portugal’s Algarve, Albufeira, enjoying excursions to Lisbon and Seville.

We wish you a peaceful Christmas and a prosperous New Year.

Vanessa & Chris

Our Best Wishes for 2020
