Give my love to Sean. Mx


Have fun! Just make sure Sean is not burning effigies of his (for a bit longer yet) doctoral students...!


Hi Margaret
Love back! Hope you are well.

Catriona, no effigies at all - and no dancing round the fire either


Did you stay up. Once Colorado came in we all knew it was all over. Obama mentioned people all over the world; what a difference. Let us hope for peace now. At last someone smart and articulate who really cares for the poor and the rest of the world. But it won't be easy! Let's keep praying for the man.


How was the fireworks party?

Peter, I didn't need to stay upp all that late to know that the right result was pretty well secured. So I slept easily and well.

Margaret - the fireowrks were modestly effective against the backdrop of the huge display by the local rugby / football team just over the back of the house. But Sean and his pal Rich did a heroic job of setting said fireworks off with due diligience about health and safety - accompanied by a dozen children yelling the countdowns.

The food was plentiful and included dr Sean's gourmet pumpkin soup, as accompaniment to oven roasted sausages with home made fried onions. All told - a really good Obama party - complete with Obama badges handed out by Sophia and Lucy - who had clearly declared a republican free zone!
