s1 and s2 planned a very secretive trip to NZ for Christmas – we were aware of their plans but s1 didn’t tell her parents, and neither did we!!

Hence a huge surprise this morning when we all went to her home for Christmas dinner – and a very happy s1 to be back with her family ……………… and her favourite santa hat!!

Fantastic – this is their second trip to NZ this year but it might be a long time before they travel south again as their first babe is due in May.

They met at school 15 years ago, and have been the best of mates ever since, so we know s1 and her family very well. We have been lucky to share many happy times with them all, and the next 2 weeks will be very very special for us all 🙂

Merry Christmas everyone. I wish you a very happy festive season, hopefully spent with family and friends.
