On Christmas Eve I spent the morning with Peter, Susan and their family who had travelled from various places to be together. Peter’s son-in-law came to collect me (in his 4×4) from the outskirts of Tring because the road up to the house was narrow, steep and still covered in a generous layer of very slippy compacted ice.

I spent a very enjoyable hour (or so) with the family, taking various group shots and finding out a little about everyone.
