    Excellent weekend! the heroes were Aida, who managed the three peaks with a dodgy knee (what determination!) and John who must have done the equivalent of 2 three peaks challenges by climbing the each peak and then coming back down to see where I was! Thanks to Geoff and Etiennette once again. x

    Another great weekend spent on the sofa - so my room mate could play for the Bombay Orchestra with his fans listening from Room 3 & 9.. Thanks to Martin, Jennifer and the other young lady providing us with entertainment for us in the lounge (better than Del's karaoke - sorry Del).. Then the cinematic experience all from the green leather sofa (which was my bed for 3 nights) watching the Fugitive movie.. Monday morning waking up to LoveAngel snoring away on the red sofa...
