Summer Holiday

Again I must apologise for the late writing of this blog. Is it just me or is time speeding up ? I cannot believe how fast the days and weeks go by. I want to thank all my family and friends who made my summer holiday so special. I spent a week in London and visited places I had not seen before and went to see the fabulous musical ‘Matilda’. Thanks to Elspeth and family for your excellent hospitality. Then it was on to Scotland to meet William for the first time – such a cutie ! Sarah, Miguel and the kids flew to Scotland from Spain. So there I was in the same room as all my relatives – magic ! ┬áMany thanks to Sarah, Miguel and the kids who let me tour around Scotland with them. We went to great places like Tobermory (the setting for the kids’ TV show called ‘Balamory’), Tomintoul (the highest village in the Highlands) and The Falkirk Wheel (a unique piece of engineering). We all enjoyed the day that William was christened – great timing with that Peter & Jill – and thanks for your excellent hospitality too. Thanks, also, to Maureen for your excellent hospitality. Maureen took me round Rosslyn Chapel which is near where she lives. It was steeped in history long before Dan Brown made it famous. The weeks since returning to Singapore have just flown past and, as always, I am really enjoying my job and life here. My landlord and landlady kindly invited me to their family meal to celebrate their 52nd wedding anniversary last weekend. How lucky I am because they are so kind to me !
