We went to Wells Golf Club for lunch, then said goodbye to Graham and Christine, before heading home to get changed for our family photo shoot. We all 'frocked up' and drove over to just past Meare to have some family portraits taken. Am excited to see how they turn out. Quiet night in tonight playing Rummikub, and pizza for dinner.

Even though it has been cold each day, it has been lovely sunny, crisp days with clear blue sky.
