We joined Matthew’s family and his in-laws, John and Eileen, for a week in Pembrokeshire near Tenby in July. It was great holiday. Beaches, islands, cliffs, good food and a lot of time given to Anna who was a delight all through the holiday.
It’s at least 35 years since we last visited this part of Wales. There were no schedules, few deadlines, no hassle, we just relaxed and enjoyed each others company.
Later in the year we spent a long weekend in Coniston in the Lakes in the cottage we’d booked for the Langdale Half Marathon. While injury prevented me from participating, we watched as Mark and younger members of his family toiled around the course through the Langdale hills. We also enjoyed a walk from Coniston to Tarn Hows – it was one of the first times I realised my knee pain was subsiding.
