We managed to have a good Christmas all together and get out for a walk on Boxing Day, as you can see. We are planning a celebration of Bryan's life to be held Cardiff in a couple of weeks, and will post the details later. To friends who might just not be able to make it that far: if you drink, please raise a glass to Bryan's memory, and wear your sandals if it snows. We're missing him greatly already.
