Ocean Road in lights

Ocean Road South Shields looking down towards the beaches and sea front parks. The lights at Christmas time certainly help cheer the place up!
Important Update

My wife Sharon, who I first met 34 years ago, passed away in tragic and sudden circumstances in the early hours of this morning. Although we all knew that eventually she must relent in her courageous two year fight against her cancers, we did not expect her death to be so imminent and immediate, she was in pretty good health all the way until the moment she went to bed. She spent part of yesterday cooking, tidying the rooms, making packed lunches for school today, everything was as normal as usual, just an ordinary mother doing extraordinary things, and then it was all over. I have no doubt that the Good Lord has saved her from much deeper suffering and that now she will be enjoying the Peace of God and unconditional love!

She leaves a huge gaping hole in our lives, and there is much that the three of us will need to learn from her examples.

As you would expect, I will not be posting any new material for some time, and now ask for the space and privacy to grieve with my children - thank you for your prayers and best wishes over these last couple of years!
