That’s it. In the words of the song I’m so happy and excited because tomorrow our daughter and her husband, and our three grandchildren (8 year old twins and 4 years old) are arriving for a visit. They are living in New Zealand for a two year period and they left exactly one year ago. They’re coming home for a visit because my husband is celebrating his 70th birthday (how did he get that old?) and the whole family is going to Devon for a week. I’ve rented an enormous and lovely house, but before that we’ll all be together at home for a while. So I’m so excited.

Have fun! 🎉 🎈 🧁 🤩

All things being equal, my son is coming over from the US with his family in July! We haven’t seen the GC or my dil for three years and only seen our ds once in that time.

Have a lovely time tomorrow maddyone, and in July, SueDonim.

Something in the air about 70th birthdays being celebrated by our families this year! Must be post-Covid elation. Next week we have 4 generations of our little family off to Ibiza for 10 days to celebrate my husband’s 70th. We can’t wait!

Thank you, everyone! I didn’t mean to steal Maddyone’s thunder but it is good to see more of normal life resuming.

I’m in the midst of moving house next week so my mind is mostly full of boxes and I think July will come round very quickly. smile

Happy birthday to all the birthday boys and girls! 🎂

What lovely news. Enjoy, everyone. Maddyone, 1952 was a very classy year to be born. I think you can probably guess how old I am!

Me too! My daughter is arriving from NZ at the beginning of June and I’ll be with all my children and DH on my 70th. It’s the first time we’ll all be together for such a long time.

Maddyone, have a lovely, happy time. 🥂
