my 2017


Other than travels here and there, the highlight for Nimmi and myself was the arrival of grandson Noah, born in June. He's growing fast and keeps everyone busy, sometimes staying the weekends at our house.

Even though Nimmi is not too keen on train journey's I managed to sneak a couple of tourist trips during the year - within Sri Lanka and to Germany.

My mother, continues to be very active in the church and village community, driving around to her various weekly social functions, more than I have. Her annual coffee morning was well attended and raised money for the Alzheimer's Society.

At work

I'm now working for a Canadian software company, helping them promote and sell their products to UK/Europe. Too difficult to explain but if you've heard of Artificial Intelligence, NLP or ML you might know what I'm up to. I also keep up to date on gadgets/tech with Google Home and Alexa to name a few.

Nimmi is enjoying her accounting work at No.1 Lounges - handy for pre-flight hospitality. With a busy work life and her new grandson, she has not had much time for her Barnes amateur dramatics but keeps in contacts with her friends.

With my camera

Plenty of photos, mainly with my iPhone or compact camera. If your look me up on Facebook or Flickr you will see me there. Also check out a few of my 2017 photos.


Travel as always. Aachen by train for to see friends, visit the three countries border (strange to be in 3 countries at the same time) and the Lindt chocolate factory.

Sri Lanka for a wedding, exploring by train (Ella), visiting a tea plantation and general sightseeing. Bodmin in Cornwall and our regular visit to our place in La Marina, Spain. Plus Barcelona and Toronto for business.

What's On My Mind

Quality of life including good health, happy friendship and a good diet should be available to all. For me I'm getting used to 'juicing' (but took time to enjoy kale), daily walking short and far dog walking. Whilst we all enjoy social media and TV, it's so lovely to meet up with family and friends, especially at family events. Keep in touch!

Wishing you Seasonal Greetings, a Happy New Year and good health to you, your family and friends.
