We have our first visitors! My Mum and Dad, or Gandma and Gandad as they are more commonly known, are staying here for two weeks which is brilliant.

We are having a great time- the only danger is overloading them with too many new people, sights, foods and experiences. Dad loves banging his head on micros and Mum is mastering a few Spanish words in a decidely English accent.

Chloe is loving having an extra two people whose sole purpose is her happiness and we are having a mini early birthday party for her tomorrow.

It has been great taking Mum and Dad to Church and to meet some of the families we are getting to know. It is really interesting hearing their take on the city from a first time view.

No one is mentioning the fact that they will have to go home…



  1. it sounds like you are having a whale of a time…………..the adventurous 3 become 5 for a miraculous moment in time of eternity…. every second of every minute………..every minute of every hour…. is precious to each one….

  2. lBeen thinking of you all so much, Chloe must be loving all the attention! I hope you all keep well and enjoy your time out of the city. I can’t wait to hear all about it from a ganny & gandad perspective!!

  3. So when did you end up hitting the ‘Rents limit?

  4. Hey guys, glad to hear you’ve been able to have family come out to visit you. Did they spoil Chloe rotten? Just wanted to let you know I’m still thinking of you and praying for you. Abe.

Leave a reply, go on, you know you want to.
