Bernese News 6th January 2016
Thank you to everyone who sent Brian and I what steadily grew into an enormous mountain of
lovely Christmas cards and photos which the postman struggled with - on some days leading up
to Christmas our postbox was full to bursting. Thank you so much for thinking of us and we very
much enjoyed receiving them all.
So here we are at the start of a brand new year with thoughts of anticipation, ambition and hopes
for good things to come.
