It's strange isn't it how different your children can be and the different times you have when staying with them. Richard and I are very lucky in that way because we get to stay with them when we are back in the UK and have good quality time with them. With Vicki and family, apart from the lovely catching up time we have, we have of course got the children and they keep us on our toes and we absolutely love being with them; the cuddles in the morning and the stories at night time are not to be missed. We also go to church with them, as a family, and that's quite special as well. We feel very privilaged also to feel part of their group of friends, and they have lots of them and that always helps keep you feeling young. I even get to go on "girlie" evenings or lunches which is great fun. Then with Clare and Kenny, we have lots of walks, doing craft and mooching around "crafty" shops which I absolutely love, poor Kenny always sorts out our computer problems without EVER complaining and just being able to sit on the rocks or beach and watch nature at work. Brilliant.

I am now going back to my knitting while Clare is working, perhaps I will be able to finish something else while I'm here!!
