A day out in Famagusta with a walk around the ancient walls followed by what turned out to be a pretty good lunch. And of course followed by the buying of EFES and filling up the car with diesel at half the price of the south.

We flew to the UK on 26th October for a couple of weeks to celebrate Julie's Mum's 90th birthday. The 'big' family party was held at Phil and Alison's house in Wollaston on the 31st October with many family members attending. The actual birthday was on 2nd November, and we took Mum and Phil out to lunch at the Rose and Crown in Yardley Hastings.
