More family visits, more milestones.

The 'Big' family comes over from the States: Tom's son Ross (10), brother Bob with wife Linda and daughter Nikki (also 10). They have a busy schedule visiting castles, London, Stonehenge, Bath and much more, pretty much covering England from west to east. I try to spend as much time with them as my work schedule allows and I enjoy their company and getting to know them.

Ross is a great kid and I can see a lot of his father in him, the same goes for Bob, he and Tom share the same genuine kindness and generosity, they are both 'gentle giants' indeed. I especially enjoy a day out with Nikki and Linda who spend a night at my place in Bath followed my a trip to Stonehenge which was great fun.

Ulla comes over for a visit too, kind of in between everyone else, so to have one last weekend in Bath before I move to Ashford into Tom's house in August.

She has a chance to meet Ross one evening but otherwise we stay in Bath doing the usual things such as shopping and sitting in cafes. She also helps me do a carboot sale early Sunday morning where I expose of a lot of clutter. I do this every time I move so I've been de-cluttering rather a lot over the last few years!

Ulla loves car boot sales!
