At Easter, we took a short break down in Cornwall with Joanna: Stephen declined to come!. Met 'Bag it and Bin It'


I was a member of a local tennis club, playing at least 2 evenings- early- each week. Also did yoga each week with a group led by Carolyn. Also used to go to Hook Norton to pick strawberries and other soft fruit. Attended Bridge adult education classes and played in a few tournamnts with Barbie- but then she withdrew due to anxiety. Played bridge socially with Davida, Yvonne & Mary

In October, my godfather, Harry Payne, was buried in Bramcote Church


David and I went to the Ferringhi Beach Hotel, Penang in November : rather a downmarket place, so we used to take a bus every morning to the Rasa Sayang Hotel, purchase their sumptious breakfast and then use their pool all day!! Took a trip up to the Malaysian Highlands with its vast tea plantations
