Happy New Decade

Twenty years ago tonight, close to midnight, at the very precipice of the last millennium, Catherine and I conceived a child.

That night in 1999 we toasted Y2K with a bottle of Henkell, a gift from Mrs. Hennessey.

Tonight Catherine is in hospital and in a bad way; it’s an enormously anxious and stressful time for all of us. But that child we conceived is 19 years old and here beside me as we forge on, and that ain’t nothing.

So tonight we take a moment to toast Catherine, and each other, and 2020 with all that it holds, good and bad. With a bottle of Henkell. A gift from Mrs. Hennessey.

Happy New Decade.

All the Bang-Jensen clan is sending you love and best wishes for 2020. You'll be in our minds and hearts whatever it brings. Please tell Catherine we wish we could bring her flowers and chocolates from the market.

I am very sorry to hear about Catherine. This is not a very nice way to start a new year. You and Oliver take care Peter.

It looks like you had wonderful company to welcome in the new decade; Happy New Year to both you and Oliver. It saddens me to read that Catherine is continuing to feel unwell. May 2020 bring you all you need.
