Timi Market

We drove down to Timi market/car boot sale to set up a stand to sell some of our unwanted household goods and clothes. Our friends, Judith and Paul, had the neighbouring pitch and on a lovely sunny day there was some good natured banter between us.

In Mmemory of Sean McCarthey

Rob had the sad duty of returning to Cardiff, UK to attend the funeral of a dear friend, Sean.

Rob and Sean had been friends for many years, they actually attended the same Nursery school at West Close in Cardiff's Docklands.

The huge turnout of mourners at the Service at St. Cuthberts church was a fitting tribute as to just how popular Sean was.

The pair of us holding up traffic on 5th Avenue, New York City, just before the infamous incident at the United Nations building.

"We will miss you my friend, your hearty laugh, your sense of humour, your wonderful cooking and your friendship.....

Brother, when they made you, they definatley broke the mould"
