Happy New Year – 2013

Wow, that went quickly, Christmas has managed to do its old trick of building up for ages and then ending, seemingly, before it started.

Hope you all had a really great time be it with your children, grandchildren, family or quietly at home with your own company and Christmas Television.

All that remains is to wish all members, their families, friends and all visitors to the site a very Happy and Prosperous New Year for 2013. Let’s hope we don’t have too many severe weather incidents and send our best wishes to all who have been affected badly by the recent spate of flooding here in the UK and, of course, to all those folk on the Eastern Seaboard of the USA as they get themselves back to normality after the horror of hurricane Sandy a few weeks back.

We have no way of controlling our weather (good job too) but I believe we are all keeping our fingers firmly crossed for a somewhat more sunny, drier Spring/Summer in 2013, especially at the weekends! we don’t mind overnight rain as long as the days are warm and bright.
