We sold Sheen to an Arab about Easter, having decided to buy Springwells, Steyning, an up market restaurant with 5 rooms. We decamped to my parents at Ashton whilst awaiting exchange of Contracts & Completion. Whilst we were there Rob Hermans, the M D of Philip Morris heard about our new venture and sacked David on the spot. But at year end, P M had to reach a financial settlement with David , as the sacking was without justification. Thus a boost to our income , and, . . .I could never have run Springwells by myself, even for a few months

Our small cottage in Steyning now became Pooh Corner. For photos of Steyning see 1978/9

We had a holiday in the Algarve in November, renting a very pleasant villa and celebrating Stephen's 4th birthday whilst we were there
