On a happier note I was down in Suffolk at the end of July for Jude's 1st birthday celebration.
Jude and his family have moved house during the summer and this is part of their new garden. They are literally surrounded by fields but only 10 minutes walk from the village. It's a wonderful setting.
In early September I spent a weekend in Shropshire with Time Travellers our local archaeology group. On Friday we visited the Roman town of Wroxeter once the fourth largest town in Roman Britain. The remains of the bath house is all that is visible now though.
Here we are at the top! As you can see from my hair it was pretty windy up here!
