... been naughty taking their photo but they were enjoying life so much I couldn't resist. Its been a lovely day and at the moment Kerry is chief chef and has made rissoles without flour, as we have none and has just had to make do with whats in the cupboard. He has done a fine job.

With my French and their English I thought I'd asked for a grade 3 but I think the barber thought I meant 3mm. Haven't had this sharp a cut since we went to that barbers in Istanbul - remember Tim?
