|With Denise (Brians sister) and Paul in Warwickshire|
The normal form with housesitting is we arrive and the owner goes away. This time however Abi had a few jobs for us, and herself, so we have house shared for the first fortnight. We haven't finished them all, but have made a really good start.

Next on the list was a walk and dinner with Denise and Paul. Lots of family catching up and lots more chatting, a really enjoyable afternoon. Discovered they were off to Lisbon the following week, shame we couldn't have coincided, but they had a huge itinerary planned so perhaps we'd never have kept up.

Abi was away for the weekend, so Sooty had to make do with just us, though she seems quite happy and has rekindled her relationship with Brian. Over the weekend we caught up with Fiona and James, with middle granddaughter Becky coming home mid way through. Followed by a day with Jonathan and Lucy and nephew and niece Charles and Caroline. They have both grown so tall and are maturing scarily quickly, but still seemed happy to see us and spend time with us which is fabulous.
