These pages are intended mainly for our immediate family and friends, but feel free to look inside. Please note: most of the pages in the Family section are password protected.  Friends and family – ask Kate, Jude or me for the password.

After 30 years in Scotland, Chris and I both took early retirement from the University of Edinburgh, and in 2001 we moved to France, with a British base in Brighton.

29 September 2008. Chris died in hospital in Montpellier, of heart failure after a long period of ill health following his pulmonary embolism. Expect gaps in this site while I (still) come to terms with my loss.

You will notice inconsistent-looking pages. I’ve decided to redesign this site, to make it easier to update. Green pages are the old site, white pages (for now) are the new ones.

March 2016: much of the family section deleted, hopefully temporarily, because of ‘discussions’ with webhost about disk space entitlement.  I don’t expect to have time to resolve the problems before May.
