Linnet (20) and Merry (16) are still going strong, though Merry has retired from rodent operative duties. Sadly his thyroid disease is advancing despite numerous pills, so we fear this year may be his last. Richard's brother Henry and Henry's wife Rachel are moving to Wellington in NZ in the New Year. We will miss having them near(ish), but look forward to visiting soon. More beef in Wellington? Richard's sister Susie and her family have moved to Guildford, very near where they were all brought up—she's now vicar of Christchurch and St Martha's.
