Somehow, in all the excitement, I have not mentioned Burns Night at all.
We had an excellent evening, just 14 for dinner, and ate heartily of neeps, tatties and haggis. I would have liked to have made more, but it was more than made up for by the pudding, as provided by the lovely Mrs Boddy.

This morning there were enough of us to ring all 8 bells as well, so this has the markings of an excellent weekend.

In the words of my Geography teacher, Mr Ellis: 'Manley could do better'.
