Jo’s 50th Birthday Party in Weymouth

On 6th August 2017, Jo Barwick hosted a wonderful family party at Portland House in Weymouth, for her 50th birthday. At least 35 members of the extended family visited this lovely 1930’s house, (now owned by the National Trust), at some point during the day and we enjoyed a very special get-together on the terrace for ‘high tea’. Thank you so much, Jo, for organising this lovely event.

Sadie’s First Birthday

On June 19th, little Sadie was one year old 🙂 Robert and Veronika hosted a lovely family birthday party and barbecue on Saturday 20th, with the rain holding off for most of the time, so that we could sit and eat in the garden. A great time was had by all and pictures can be seen by clicking here.

Barley plays for the left-overs

Barley does get very excited when she realises there are left overs following a big family meal! Oh how she loves her Dad when he organises for the fridge.

A baby focussed Christmas time

Christmas 2014 was the very first for the two new babies in the family. The latest gallery shows a few photos taken on Christmas Day and then a few taken on Boxing Day too, when we had a nice big get-together with both the new babies’ little families. Do have a peek.

A second beautiful baby girl for 2014

Big congratulations to Guy and Amy!

Miss Skye Elizabeth Harper arrived safely at 10:26 pm on 18th December. What a wonderful Christmas it will be, with two gorgeous new baby girls in the family. At almost exactly six months apart in age, the cutie cousins are sure to be great friends and partners in mischief.

Do have a look at some pictures taken when Gramma Helen and Grampa James first went to meet their new grand daughter, at less than two days old.

Cinderella panto

At the end of November we went to see ‘Cinderella’, a pantomime performed by the Westbury-upon-Trym ‘am-dram’ group, Charade Drama. The team had all worked very hard and it was great fun.


There are lots more pictures on Flickr, for anyone interested.
