Date & Time : 10.30 am, Sunday 2nd July 2006.

Occasion : The Christening of Abigail Mia Bullock, our first Grand daughter.

Location : St Mary's Church, Tickhill, near Doncaster, Uk.

With : Ann.

Weather : A thundery shower soon passed to give a hot sunny afternoon.

Abigail is our sixth grandchild, but only our first grand daughter.

She was to be Christened in St Mary's Church, Tickhill today.

 

We had travelled down the night before

and stayed with friends

which meant that we would not have far to travel for the 10.30 service.

Jill and David also volunteered to dog-sit for the day.

It's called planning.
