Today Claire and Chris left for Blackpool. Chris was going home after spending Claire's birthday week down here with us and Claire has gone to spend her second week of holidays with him in Blackpool.
This evening, Norma flew back to South Africa after spending three weeks in the UK. We'll miss her but at least this time we know that they are thinking of coming back to live here. By the end of the year she is hoping to be back .... fingers crossed that all goes well.
Norma with her son Kyle, who has lived here for the past six years.
It was also my nephew Max's 17th birthday today. We went round for birthday tea and cakes this afternoon and to say bon voyage to Norma. This coming week is going to feel very quiet!
