Happy Birthday (Great) Granny / Mum

I made a printable version of Ruth's great Google map of Captain Gibbs' WWI movements. It's a present for Mum and if you want to share you can print it out here: Download Arthur gibbs map. For some reason Captain Gibbs is behind enemy lines on 28 June 1917. Can anybody explain? Maybe he did a bit of spying or was captured and escaped very quickly.

Running Imo

Last weekend Imogen had a great day running in the South West Schools cross country Championship. Seven counties entered a team, with Gloucestershire, Avon, Wiltshire, Dorset, Somerset, Devon and Cornwall. She ran a 2,650m race in which there were 70 runners. 63 of them completed the course and Imogen finished twenty-first. Each county had ten runners and Imo was the third Somersetian to finish. So she is feeling great.
Dear Imo, what a splendid run! Keep it up and you will really run for England! All love Granny

It looks like a great race. Well done Imogen!
The child just behind Imo looks remarkably like Alice. Has she been time traveling again?
best wishes Jo

Cricket 2011

A new year and a new date!!

After frantic last minute shuttle diplomacy and much arm twisting, we have managed to move the fixture from the rainy, exam filled days of May into the joyous, sub-continental heat of July. It’ll be a dust-bowl, a spinner’s delight – I can feel the cup coming home already!

All I need now is a tiny, weeney bit more support than I had last year (a miserable team list of 3!) in order to form a winning, Sedlescombe destroying fighting unit. Throw your names into the hat and stand by your family name! There is honour at stake.

There is also an optional warm up match the day before for anyone who needs the practice and want to join me and turn it into a ‘double-header’ weekend.

Let me know. xP
