2019 has started well enough with no major dramas. I have half an hour spare to reflect on 2018 which was a another great year for us. Here are some of our best memories -

January - It was fabulous to see Jay, our daughter, in her element in Pondicherry, India organising the start of a restaurant which has recently been voted the fifth best new restaurant in the world by the Food and Drink magazine

Jay, with some of her staff and us on the steps of her fabulous restaurant 'The Coromandel'

Exploring Pondicherry  with a hint of adrenalin….

February - Back to the UK with a shock as we had the worst winter I can remember for a long time
Snow drifts at the top of our drive
March - A great double at the Oakley point to point with Velvet Steel and Popaway

 Velvet Steel - The 'Over the Page' partnership, John, Jen, Nicky and Dave and with Popaway with Carol and Roy 

May 4th - the absolute highlight of our year with Popaway winning at Cheltenham for the 3rd time



June - A lovely break in Greece, Skopalos

August - The birth of Allegra, a beautiful baby girl. Our sixth grandchild

October - A great week in the Lake district
