I am so astounded and amazed that they wanted to come all this way, it just wouldn't have been the same without them.
Now we are looking to the future.
Every couple of years or so my family (Mum's side) tries to all get together in some lovely location to relax and be together (we are in the UK, US, & Australia) and this year we have our eyes set on Mauritius. Mauritius is about 12-13 hours from both the UK and Australia, and has two Club Med resorts. We like to stay at Club Med's when we all get together as everything is inclusive, the meals, the drinks, the pool, rooms etc, so it makes get a group of nearly 20 of us together and feeding us all a lot easier.
|Here is the brood at the last Club Med Holiday in Phuket, Thailand in 2008. Since then there has been three added members, baby Oscar, his mum Ceri and of course Lewis.|
And so the saving begins, hopefully Lewis and i can get the money together to join the rest of the family at Christmas. (Fingers crossed Lewis can get the time off work too!)
