Tom's post

Mum and Dad were in Somerset yesterday to attend the funeral of Sue Petri. She died recently, aged 79. Sue was married to David Petri who was Dad's cousin and Dad had been David's best man. M & D had travelled here by train from Newbury where they had been staying with Cherry and Bill.

Arthur recently ran a 3500m race having been entered by his school with the chance to be selected for a Somerset running team. There were other children up to 21 months older than him. He finished 21st out of 45 and missed qualifying by two places. Next week he is off to France for a week, to stay with some French friends of ours during half term.

Edward was in a seven-a-side, inter-school rugby tournament last weekend. They got to the finals and at full time it was a draw. So they played sudden death and sadly lost that. He has also recently been awarded an academic scholarship in anticipation of his move to senior school in 2010.

Imogen is the fastest girl in her year. She took part in her year's cross-country race and finished third, behind a couple of very speedy boys. She has taken up the flute this term, in addition to the piano so it feels as though she has quite a lot on her plate.

Flora's first tooth fell out the other day. She does not need to compete in any races or serious sports yet. Sadly she dropped her tooth and it fell under the floorboards.
