As I type my mother and father in law are 40000 feet in the air, making their way from Kuala Lumpur to Melbourne. They will arrive here at 2 am. The kids agreed to go to bed early, with no fuss, with the promise that Grandma and Grandpa will be here when they wake. We are all so excited about their impending arrival that we’ve even arranged for the weather to be great for them. Having said that anything above zero would be a luxury given what they’ve been experiencing back in Blighty recently. We’re going to do a mini-Christmas for them and something tells me tomorrow is going to be a beautiful day. Here’s the view at the back of our house at sunset tonight.
Good weather, exchanging of gifts, good food, crackers, ridiculous hats (oh yes, they WILL be worn again) and best of all, the company of people we love. Perfect.
