Thank you for your wishes. Although I have now reached an age when I quickly forget how old I am!
Charlotte and I took our children to the Avoncroft museum of historic buildings south of Birmingham today, http://www.avoncroft.org.uk/index.asp. The weather was not brilliant, but we had a great time all the same. Mind you Charnham House dates from 1520, so is as old as most of the exhibits.
Andrew and Judy French are on vacation in Portugal at the moment, but I will keep trying to persaude them to do more CF shaving events.
