Kitchen nearly finished

"How is the kitchen going?" I hear you asking. Well, nearly finished ... I think, is the answer nearest to the truth. A few pictures below show the work completed right up to this very day.

Sophia's Dedication Service

We have had a lovely weekend in Portsmouth where we all gathered to dedicate our grand daughter Sophia into God's care. She was a little angel, with cherub-like smiles all round! Afterwards the Watsons and Durdins gathered in a eatery for a family get-together.

Richard's and Jenny's new boat.

Our neighbours, Richard and Jenny have just bought a new boat. As they are not permanently residing in Dartmouth, they have asked me to keep an eye on her. So today we went to see how she works - in torrential rain!

Jireh - photos when she was new!

What a treat! I received a message from Doug Elliott, one of the builders of my Lugger 'Jireh' asking if I would like to see some pictures of Jireh before she left their yard - nearly 40 years ago. She looks just as good today - or will once I have give her a repaint this year. Many thanks Doug.

Youth Alpha Away Day

Yesterday we enjoyed sunshine; a stunning location complete with swimming pool, tennis court, play area and miniature farmyard with chickens, piglets and a goat; the company of the kids and leaders from the Church Youth Group and a fantastic speaker from Youth For Christ in Ivybridge. But most of all we enjoyed the blessings that only God can give. We all felt the presence of the Holy Spirit strengthening our faith and bringing us into a closer relationship with Jesus.
We look forward to what more God has in store for us.

Lydia's 17th Birthday

Lydia has turned 17! She celebrated by taking some friends to the pictures in Plymouth to see 'Alice in Wonderland' in 3D, followed by a pizza (Nando's had a long waiting list). And what did dad do during the 4 hour wait? What else, but go for a paddle in my kayak around Plymouth Sound. Happy Birthday Lyds.

Kitchen - Slow Progress!

Work on the kitchen has been progressing oh so slowly! Finding time is the problem, but in the picture you can see the first of our very cheap oak veneer worksurfaces from IKEA; reduced from £120 to £10!
