Another glorious day here in West Sussex and I've even had the chance to sit out in the sun for a while to have my lunch. I do love these late sunny days!
Going back to yesterday, as I mentioned, it was good to meet up some of the family again. At the Wake we sat at a table with Nicola and her girls; Sophie, Chloe and Lauren. Nicky is Jon's eldest brother, Mike's daughter, who lives in Staffordshire. For one reason or another, it's been a number of years since we last saw her and it was great to be able to catch up again. As I've said on one of my layouts (to be posted at the end of this post) we really should make more effort to keep in touch with family, for the children's sakes - as well as our own - so that they know who their cousins are. Growing up in South Africa, we didn't have family around us and although I didn't really miss it at the time, with hindsight, I do wish I had known my cousins and had a closer bond with them. I feel I now need to try and give that to our children so they have the opportunity to form a bond for future years. So, here are a few photos of Nicky and her girls.

Finally to finish off today, two layouts for Shimelle's Learn Something New Everyday class which will be coming to an end at the end of September. I've had a great time doing the layouts and it's one of the few classes where I've actually kept up to date - yippee!!!
