Those of you who were here over New Year will remember my neighbour Brendon's attempts to repair our border fence (owned by him).  He ended up doing a good job replacing the duff panel, but unfortunately today's 70 mph gusts of wind have buggered the rest of the fence nicely!

You can also see our little 10' shrub/tree thingummy has come a cropper...  I think he can be salvaged though.

Renewal Time

January is car insurance renewal month and I usually spend a fun few hours searching the web and talking to a few other groups who offer special discounts.

Well this year I am amazed!  Both Serena's and my renewal quotes from our existing insurerers were the lowest quotes I can find by quite a substantial margin!  That has never happened before.

Looks like a double straight renewal!  Keeps it simple!

Return of the Musketeers

As blogged by Sally, this New Year saw the first get together of me with all my oldest friends for many years.

Alex, Julian, James and I have known each other since we were 8 (although I have known James since he was 4) and we have been good friends since 3rd year at St Peter's (aged 13).

You can compare these photos to another from my album when I get round to scanning it in, unless the above three pay me £20 each not to!!!!

Here is another of the four of us from New Year's Eve.
