Since Lisbon, our journeys have been in the U.K. – the longest to Newcastle Upon Tyne, where our oldest son was ordained into the Church of England. It’s a region unfamiliar to me and proved to be as beautiful and interesting as any other. Then Cambridge where our youngest son has moved for his work. Buying a house these days is a major challenge for first-time buyers, but he and his wife have managed it. The only other journeys have been up and down a ladder as I painted the eaves of our home. In October comes a major trip to Brazil for the mission for whom I volunteer. Excellent!
