I can’t believe it, the time has gone so fast.
It is almost two months now since we got back from California and I still have not had time to finish writing about that experience.
When we came home it was going to be about 5 weeks before my step children arrived in the UK for a 3 week visit. Last night they were here for a farewell meal with myself and Owl along with Skater and Pug, (my younger two sons.) Today we are meeting up with Missy M and Mr T briefly for the last time for who knows how long. Tomorrow they fly back to California and we will be back to relying on skpe and email.
It has been great to see them here and show them our new home. It has been good for them to meet 3 out of 4 of my son’s their new step brothers. It has been great creating new memories and cementing relationships.
During the three weeks they have been here there have been a number of get togethers for different combinations of family members, including an evening up on the hill looking out over Portsmouth eating ginormous burgers. An afternoon of tenpin bowling and a weekend visit to our beach retreat.
I only hope that time will be kind to us and we will manage to be together on the same side of the pond again in the not too distant future.
