As you remember the other day I described how I was born in the middle of an air raid in october 1943, the reason for the air raid was that the german air force were dropping incendiary bombs along the railway track running from Southampton into Portsmouth so that the German Bombers could find there way into Portsmouth Naval base. Anyway the railway line ran along the bottom of the garden of the houses in Western Road Fareham, where my Maternal Grandparents Annie and Frederick Hubbard lived, this is where I lived with my Mother until my father returned home from the war in 1946. Sadly those houses have since been demolished to make way for the Fareham By Pass but western road is still there. This is where we had the street party in 1945 on VE Day, below are a couple of Photographs (1) Annie and Frederick Hubbard on VE Day (2) the same road in 2010, and also my Grandfather Frederick hubbard and Grandmother Annie Hubbard.with Auntie Maud and Uncle Fred in 1943/44

|A Relaxing Sunday|
|Relaxing with the daily paper|
|A pleasant day in the back Garden this morning, cold though.|
|A Happy lunch. Bacon and egg|
Once I have finished lunch I get the washing up done and then think about what to have for dinner tonight, I think that I will be having a Gluten Free beef Bolognese tonight which will make a change from Chicken or Fish, anyway that is settled so no need to prepare any vegetables so I make a coffee and then go out to into the back yard to say hello to next doors cat that has come for its daily visit.
|Hello next doors cat "Misty Moo"|
It certainly has been a relaxing day today and it has done the rick as the aches and stiffness in the thigh, hips and Gluteus Maximus has now all gone and is back to normal, well as normal as it can be these days, as my GP always says about the results of my regular blood tests, "Satisfactory for this Patient" well folks that is about it for the moment, so I will get this Journal finished and Posted nice and early today as I have been late with it the last couple of days so until tomorrow I will say Cheerio.
