I have mentioned before how blessed I feel to have married into the family that I have. Growing up, my family was great. Not just my parents and my brother but extended family too. I have aunts, uncles and cousins, as well as further layers of great Aunts, and second cousins etc. and I was always aware that some families do not enjoy each other as much as we did when we got together for Christmases, weddings or other events.
When you join another family through marriage you can never be sure about what you are signing up for. I feel like I hit the jack pot beyond just finding Jeremy, but his family too. I just spent the most lovely afternoon with his Mum and Aunt having tea. His mum and I took the ferry to Port Orchard and met with his aunt. She took us to her favourite tea shop where we had lunch. It was so much fun and I know that baby boy enjoyed it as much as I did. Or at least I am taking his squirms and rolls to mean that!
Here we are, ladies that lunch! Do you see the pie in front of us? It was amazing. At first I wasn't sure if I would have room for dessert but after hearing the options I couldn't resist...and the berry pie I chose was worth every bite.
As much fun as the afternoon was, I got home around 3.30pm and sat down. And I haven't moved since. I am exhausted! I did do a load of laundry, and later I will probably make dinner, but for now I am working on my full time job of housing and growing this baby.
