I’ve been away for a couple of days visiting my son, daughter in law and our grandchildren who have just returned to the UK from Germany where they have been living for the last few years. They hired a holiday cottage in Gloustershire for a week whilst they waited for their furniture to arrive. We haven’t seen our grandchildren since last November and we were surprised by how they had grown in that short time. I returned home yesterday so I could say Mass at St. George’s Church, Brentwood this morning. Ann has stayed on, so she could mind the children whilst the parents oversee the remover’s arrival from Germany and the setting up of their new home.
