Christmas Journal - 29th December

This was one of those days that turned out better than we had dared to hope it would be.  We hadn't seen Phil's brother for six years, so it was a little awkward to begin with but once we had been there for a while it was fine. Their mother was pleased that her two sons were together again.  We were all happy to see Phil's sister and her family, especially my four little nephews (don't know how she does it, we found it exhausting just being with them for a few hours!)

I took a lot of photos that day, but chose to use photos from the lunch table as I managed to get 12 out of the 15 people there (missing are my MIL, FIL and myself).

  2. Another great set of photos Carole.
    Pleased the reunion went well - they can be awkward (an Aunt I hadn't seen for over 40 years turned up at Dad's funeral..)

  3. I'm glad your day turned out so great! I can't imagine having more than one boy, my one seems to use up all my energy some days! Bet it makes you happy to get back to the quiet of your own home.
