Today our sweetheart is turning 9. She woke up at 7.15am this morning, but went back to bed as she was the only one awake. At 7.45am she knocked on our bedroom door asking when we would come to surprise her with the gifts. Tee hee.....she could no longer wait. She was really happy with the gifts we bought her.

This afternoon my parents, brother and his family (if Nick feels well), my MIL and FIL will come over. And.....my dear SIL Lisette and Rebecca, Ruben and Renee will come too. They are here for the weekend, and I really look forward to seeing them again. It will be the last time that we see each other before they move to Australia at the beginning of January. We only see each other 2 or 3 times a year, but now that they move from the UK to Australia we will only see each other once in a few years. Of course we are sad to see them moving so far away, but the good thing is that we plan to visit them in Australia one day. We have never been to Australia, so a family visit is the perfect occasion to go there.
