Congratulations Elliot 🎉

GCSE’s completed 🤓 Huge congratulations – it was tough but you smashed through them all 👏

A levels unlocked at Pontefract New College 🤩

Computer Science, Business Studies and Economics – wow it is going to be hard work, but a whole lot of fun.

We are super proud of you and look forward to watching this next level as you proceed through your journey of life.

Farewell Nard – until we meet again

Thank you for being a part of our lives. We are stronger and better for knowing you and will of course miss you terribly. The red wine supplies might be a little higher now, but we will not be able to open one without a terrific recollection of sharing a bottle with you going forwards.

Hugo realises that milk and toast may never return to his breakfast menu ☺️ but he will enjoy your garden views as often as he can ❤️

Until we meet again, enjoy occasionally looking down over us all – we will do all we can to keep the wine flowing and the laughter running ❤️🍷🍷

Whernside Walk

Elliot and dad went to the dales (Ribblehead) with some of dad’s work friends first thing this morning and set out on a walk up (and down) the Whernside mountain (one of the Yorkshire. 3 peaks).

It was 8 miles of pretty tough terrain in the cold and wet (misty rather than full on raining).

We completed it in just under 3.5 hours and then enjoyed 3 hours in the pub for a terrific pub lunch and a few cheeky beers.

Don’t think Elliot will join us for more of them and certainly not for the full 3 peaks but we are both delighted to have accomplished this one for now 🙂
