Friday dawned a bit chilly but with lots of promise for a warm day
Not knowing yet what time our visitors would arrive we sat on the deck and watched the world go by on the River Thames, not that there was much traffic, it has suddenly gone very quiet.
And then they were here and the peace is shattered!
This is Evie who we've not met before and like any 6 year old she was full of questions and chatter, and very curious about everything.
And this is Laura my niece and Evie's mum enjoying a trip back to Blighty to visit family
My brother Alan (twin to Garry who visited last week from Australia) and sister-in-law Margaret, Laura's mum and dad who have very kindly bought Laura and Evie to see us, it was so good to see them too.
.... photos below ... if Evie isn't in them it's because she was taking the pictures!
Evie says this swan with his bum in the air looks like a marshmallow ... and it does!
Time for them to leave
We spent a wonderful afternoon with them catching up with family news and getting to know young Evie and were sorry to see them go not knowing when we might get the opportunity again of all meeting up. We wish them both a safe return to New Zealand and good luck for the future.
