Well we didn’t get to Spain for Xmas and New Year but we had a lovely day in Liverpool , fabulous meal at my niece’s and lots to be grateful for, we spent time with family we were warm, comfortable and well fed. Much to be grateful for. On the 23rd of December we went to the funeral of our very good family friend , we have known Mike for over thirty years and loved his sense of humour ,a true liverpudlian who loved Liverpool, followed the Reds all his life , and worked hard for his family . He died suddenly in his sleep which was a great shock to every one especially his wife , my very good friend Carole and son and daughters my heart goes out to them at this time. They have tried very hard to keep things normal over christmas for the sake of the grand children as I said earlier we have much to be grateful for as we spent our holiday with our family.
