Trip was OK until we hit Gatwick. What should be a three hour trip took more than 5 hours. And after sitting in a plane all night we were toast, mouth-open-sleeping in the back of my dad's LPG converted jeep.
Anyway we are here and rested and I've seen ALL my immediate family (1 brother, 2 sisters, assorted partners, parents, grandad, 10 nieces & nephews and one great niece), which is a record :) They're all groovy.
My hometown hasn't changed, maybe a little greener than it was, my parents' garden lush and green from the hot summer. But I always feel like an outsider here, and felt that way even as a child.
Still woosy with some jetlag and need to start writing just a little bit to get my head in gear. Unfortuately this house is stuffed with antiques and I have to WATCH the children all the time. DS has already broken some things and made my father's notorious temper buzz. Not exactly a holiday. The upside is we are hopefully heading to a Welsh beach for a couple of days camping. I'll try and set up my camera tomorrow and give you an inside look :)
So guys...how are you :D
