This year, our travels have been restricted by the need to give Brandy her tablets for hyperthyroidism and chronic kidney failure. She is now 20 and has to travel with us if we go away so we can dose her. We took her with us for a week's holiday to Porthmadog on the edge of Snowdonia in July. We also had a lovely week at home during our village Wakes Week.

Gillian has been appointed to a two-day a week appointment as project manager of the EU-funded Framework 7 Sedentexct project, in the School of Dentistry at the University of Manchester. She remains in the School of Medicine for the other three days a week, working on the EU-funded LTfLL and other projects.

Martin continues at Sheffield Hallam, and is external examiner for a number of other universities, including for a collaborative programme with a Malaysian institution.
