On the Sunday of our UK stay, we drove all the way up to Norfolk to visit our friends Ivor and Maureen. My son Jason and his family, Sam, Jack and Kitty were there for the day too. We arrived just as dinner was being served. What timing.
Jason and Sam had decided not to tell Jack that I was coming but told him there would be a surprise. His little face was a picture when I arrived. He said 'What are you doing here?' then 'It's a good thing you arrived now or you would have missed your pudding'. He obviously had the pudding on his mind! Later on he said to me 'That was the best surprise ever'. Aw, bless.
We all sat round the table and enjoyed a Sunday roast dinner. Then there was lots of playing with the children, a look around the garden and general chatting and catching up. Here are a few photos of our day:
Kitty now crawling all over the place.
Jack shows off his stickle brick rocket. I'm pulling a strange face!
Jack was laughing because all my rockets fell apart!
I was proud of this one - until it fell apart too....
Kitty decided to eat Jason's mobile phone!
Jason looks on as Kitty stands for quite a while. I tried to get her to walk to me but in the end she bent down to the floor. I don't think it'll be long before she's walking.
Me - my hair isn't quite that red!
Another funny one of me! Jack gave me some sweets.
Jack and Jim had great fun building monsters with the stickle bricks too. It was all too soon time to go but we had a lovely day. We headed off back to Worthing about 7pm and arrived back rather exhausted! Monday was packing the car day and we really packed it full this time - having bought a dishwasher during our stay.
It's good to visit but so nice to be back home!
I have taken lots of flower photos so look out for the next blog.
