The day thou Gavest Lord has Ended

Najac at night

I add a song which your mum sang every day at the end of her primary school day in Stockport, and a few words of prayer by the Bishop of Manchester, who Lynne and I talked to at the Cathedral one Easter a few years ago.
Avoir une bonne vie
on t’aime


We hope you enjoyed your 46th birthday, my sweet stepdaughter. When I first came to this beautiful part of the world in the Penine foothills I remember seeing you at the back of St John’s, serving coffee and biscuits to congregants.
There’s a girl who knows what she’s about, I thought.

Serving is a task not of those at the bottom of the pile, as the snobs would have it, but of those who follow Jesus’ example, when he washed his follower’s feet.


You are a great loss to education in England, but your and Rob’s vitality certainly means you will end up giving more love in la belle Francais to visitors to your adopted home in the mid Pyrenees (click for detail) than is par for the course.




Manchester is a great city, as you and Rob

well know, but Najac seems to be a sensible swap.

Your adventure there has only just begun, and we are all rooting for you. 

Nous prions que vous aviez une bonne journée aujourd’hui

Nous vous aimons tous les deux

Now 70, I'm getting back into website development and brand protection, as well as showcasing the delightful artistic talents of my beautiful wife Lynne. My projection will encompass a lifetime of database marketing, as well as the Christian democratic socialist ideals of my wife and I.
