Catch up (part 1)

January 1, 2014

No excuses, I’ve simply not got around to blogging much but there might just be time to catchup before the end of the year….

In July  (9th – 16th)  we took young Lewis to the Isle of Lewis

Also, in July – partly due to the great weather and partly because my Aunt started nagging me about cholesterol and heart disease – I started Cycling to work.  At first only  three days a week but it didn’t take long to get up to 5 days. It did get hard when the clocks change and it got colder but still going and really enjoying it.

September (8th) we Dedicated Lewis to God during a service at St Silas, asking Ali and Alison (we didn’t deliberately choose them because they had similar names)…

Also in November Danar and I celebrated a significant decimal anniversary – 1000 days married!  We went to one of our favourite restaurants, the wonderful Bibi’s Cantina.

Jake suggests Lewis should be a Christian

April 10, 2013

On 5th April (when Lewis was less than 48 hours old) Cousin Jake and his family came to visit.  Jake was particularly fascinated with the new baby holding him, checking out his feet and how soft his arms were.

As it got busier and all the adults were chatting, Jake spotted a blue index card the hospital put in Lewis cot.  He pulled it out to have  a look and pointed out that nothing had been written against “Religion”…


He looked at it for a moment then turned to me and said “Christianity?”  like a suggestion of something to think about.

Announcing Baby Lewis Lynch: 3rd April 2013

April 4, 2013

9lb2 boy born at 21:56 last night after a long labour.  By the time you read this baby Lewis will be one day old.  His first day on earth has been eventful around him, but he slept through most of it only being disturbed to eat and be dressed and passed around a bit for people to cuddle and coo’.

Mum is recovering gradually from a labour with a few difficulties but a fantastic result. Dad is a little shell shocked by everything that is going on.  Anyway, here’s the photos…
