2023 was a busy year in many ways. Ann had her right hip replaced, Lynn and Paul are now living in Paris (actually Le Pecq) for a year where Paul is on a course and Lynn is having a sabbatical but is busy with Post Brexit bureauracy and looking after Ben (Benoit) a lovely French Border Collie pup. Sadly they said goodbye to Tom after 14 years of adventures. Rose, now one and a bit, smiles her way through life and Grace has started at full time school, and seems to enjoy being "big sister". In the school holidays they all go off to their 'barn' in the Occitane, though this Christmas they are with Phil's parents in Australia. Having spent 14 months at home Ann & Ian managed a short holiday in Normandy last month and were able to stay with Lynn and Paul on the way back.
