Today is the day of the Jefferys Family outing down to Fareham for lunch with step-grandmother and Uncle Colin and Aunty Jill who are over from America. We have a nice lunch in a nicer than I remember it, Fareham, and then went for a walk down on the seafront at Gosport – the first seaside that Emma saw as a baby. Looking out across the Solent, there was serious weather battering Hyde (the power station completely disappeared for a time). Even more eerily, the dark oppressiveness was contrasted at times by almost turquoise waters and sunshine yellow beaches over where we were.

Now I’m sitting opposite my girlfriend putting photos in my album as Emma sorts through hers. I should really be going home but I might as well miss any traffic, and I get to stay here a bit longer… 🙂
