We are trying to go even more paperless this Christmas and will be buying a goat for Uganda instead of cards and stamps.
We have had two new additions to the Abbott household this year
One night he jumped a 4 and a half foot gate, when Jenny went out to see him in the morning, he had vanished! We had a very stressful morning reporting it to the guards and searching. He was found by Annabelle's cousin, John, grazing happily in a huge field near the castle.
Gary finished his maternity cover at Cognex and got another maternity contract at SouthWestern an outsourcing company and is working on the Newspread account. This is the distribution arm of the Irish Independant. It is much closer to home - only a 20 minute commute which is a refreshing change
Other big news is that Emma, Annabelle's sister is marrying Tim Cooper in April. They are still living in Uganda but are getting married on the beach in Mombasa, Kenya. It is just immediate family going. We are all so thrilled about the wedding & to be going to Africa again!
Gary had two trips to Brecon to see his family, one with Edward (we also went to see Red Kites being fed) and one with Jenny (we went on a climbing wall with Tina & Trace). Both were fantastic trips.
If you are coming to Ireland for a holiday we would love you to come see us - we have plenty of room.
Happy Christmas to everyone with lots of love from the Abbotts
