Image from: http://www.freedigitalphotos.net/images/view_photog.php?photogid=2280It’s been a while since my last update and to be honest I’ve been concentrating on my other web properties.

Please do have a look:

– my photo a day blog.
– or Panoptic.

Though truth be told the writing aspect has very much taken a back seat, so here’s a quick roundup.

Owen is safely ensconced in Geneva in Switzerland and now has the room to accommodate folks that don’t mind sharing with him. He is very much “living his dream” at CERN despite Madame Fruitbat** attempting to sabotage it all.

Jenna started “big school” and is loving the newness of it and has now started to learn the flute on top of piano & violin.

Coel meanwhile is enjoying the new found freedom of not having his sister to watch over and report his every action. Also, despite winning the world title in sparring for his age and grade in Tang Soo Do he has hung up the gloves and like his sister no longer participates.

All three remain in good health – though we have to take Owen’s word about that sometimes!

As for Kathryn, she is still soldiering on with her ‘illness’ and on top of that found out she had a cancerous mole on her big toe that turned out to be a melanoma – one very hasty op later and she now needs a bit of minor plastic surgery which is booked for early days of October. But due to speed of discovery and removal prognosis is excellent.

As for myself – well I just keep on keeping on as my old pastor used to say and today I head into new territory. Today I hope to leave my younger children behind when I grade to 4th gup. My ambition being very much to secure that black belt.

More anon or look me up on facebook for more frequent and up to the minute news.

** our name for his lunatic and now ex-landlady.
And should anybody be looking to stay in Geneva then please contact us first so that we can advise whom to avoid.
