Jon arrived home from Europe last Saturday (3rd May) and he brought his mum with him so this week has been very busy. We haven't seen his mum since we left England almost 7 years ago.
I didn't have a very good relationship with his mum back then so was very wary when I found out about her visit. But... it actually went very well. The kids adored her and warmed to her very quickly, even the girls that have never seen her before.
She enjoyed herself so much that she is planning her return trip. She only stayed a week (she flew out yesterday) so hopefully next time she can come for a bit longer.
This was actually her first trip on a plane so she is doing very well to travel back on her own.
