2021 Christmas Newsletter from the Lovelock Family in Sunninghill
on updated 1630 GMT Thursday 6th January 2022.

white strip Robin Lovelock Seasons Greetings All ! I've been writing these Christmas Newsletters since 1995, online since 1996 - Click on Father Christmas above for that from 1996 :-)

We had snow in January - suitable for snowball fights. It made the local golf-courses more suitable for Walks :-)

June & Samantha had tickets for Ladies Day at Royal Ascot. Robin was their driver - then joined Uncle Bernie & cousin Larry to watch it on TV :-) Xmas21 Xmas21 white strip

June decided to buy a Camper Van , and we have already had two fantastic trips in it. The first was to Devon: lovely walks, Steam trains, beaches, and Pam Coughlan :-)

Our next trip, north, took in the amazing model aircraft show, the RAF Museum with TSR-2, then Wales, Robin's old friend Tony Wale, and the estate of Lord Glanusk. white strip Xmas21 RAF Museum video Xmas21 Xmas21 Xmas21 white strip

Saskia & Gary hosted our 50th Wedding Anniversary party. June found old photos, taken by their Ferranti-workmate Pete Wilson. Robin remembered how he cut the cake ! :-)

June's Birthday, on Sunday 18th July 2021, had nice weather, so we had lunch on our back patio. The deer eat peanuts left out near our front door :-) Xmas21 June's Birthday Xmas21 Deer white strip

LOTS of other things happened, often the result of taking interesting Walks - sometimes places we had not visited for decades - if at all. e.g. that Gypsy Party ! :-) Xmas21 Xmas21 5k run around Eton Boating Lake video white strip

Ramster Gardens Writing this newsletter reminded me that I'd forgotten to mention that 5k run that June and Samantha did, around Eton Boating Lake, on Saturday 4th September. It was the same day that June and I started our Camper trip up north, mentioned earlier. Luckily, I managed to find the photos and video clips, that went into my Youtube video above. You will see them with their medals, and me doing some running too :-)

June caught a mild case of Covid19 in early October, keeping her in bed several days, but she was soon back into tennis, shopping, and socialising - within the rules AND Common Sense of course ! :-)

Time to wrap up this "early issue" of the 2021 Newsletter, within a paper budget of two A4 sides, and delegate June to print a few copies.

I'm sure extra pages will be added to this online copy on with more pictures, videos, and later news - hopefully good ! Here we are, enjoying a dance at Ramster Gardens, on 29th October 2021. It's from our Walks page :-)

Have a Great Christmas, New Year, and a good 2022. Love & Strength ! :-)

Who has visited this page ?

Robin Lovelock From Robin: It's very convenient for me, that there are so few visitors to this page: just those given the link. See map and words near end of my Home page ;-)

Visit Counter after reply to Microtransat Group The visit counters may give a rough indication on who else is visiting, or has visited, this page. I don't hide or disguise my visits, but they may appear as "Ascot", or miles away, like "Southal, England" (on my Study PC), or "Southend-On-Sea" ( on the Lounge PC). Positions may not be accurate, but times are. These may change at any time, without control by me. e.g. after a power cut, or my re-booting a router. So, you may see if I'm "working" in the Study, or "playing" in Lounge :-)

Not all visits are seen, and some browsers hide location, but you MAY find Revolvermaps livestats for this page of interest.

The video on the right shows several guys visiting at the same time, after I posted the link on the Microtransat forum to my Covid19 page :-)
