Apologies for the site not having any news until now. 2012 has, quite frankly, been a year for us to forget. We have had two major bereavements (mother and aunt), and other news with a Cousin and Uncle - both of which have been pretty devestating. So, we have not had time to even breathe, let alone take time to update on the website for now. We are hoping 2013 will be an improvement, although we know one cousin is fighting cancer and so far, it isn't in her favour, so we can only hope at this stage. So, apologies in advance if the next few months are also sporadic.
