We seem to have had visitors for about a month! Firstly my brother came, then some old friends, then over Christmas and New Year both lots of grandkids and their parents, thankfully not at the same time.
Now we are alone again and the house feels empty. We love seeing them, but it is "good to see them come and good to see them go" as my mother-in-law used to say. It was "clean mess", but I was exhausted and now in need of a rest!
