New Year in Ascot

Patrick, Paula and lots more...

Patrick and Paula were our hosts for New Year celebrations. Fred and Sylv drove down from Ashby and Jeanine came down from Nottingham with her four boys. With us, as late additions, it was a full house.

Patrick and Paula were expecting their first child about six weeks into the new year and both seemed to be in great spirits. Lots of news updates, gossip and tall stories ensued while waiting for the New Year to arrive. Marian and I, party poopers that we are, retired about 10:00pm while the hardier folk stayed on and got the job done. On New Years Day, following breakfast, the visitors began to leave to take on another brand new year. Here a a few snaps of the revelers.
