Anyway, here are some photos from the weekend.
Here we are, marvellng at Karen's shopping.
Here we are, after eating at the Woodthorpe.
Here's me with Big Ben.
Here's me at Westminster Abbey
Here's Karen with our All-You-Can-Eat Afternoon Tea. So much yum!
Here we all are, weary after a day in London.
And here's Karen, heading to Hogwarts.
It was really wonderful spending so much time with Karen. I don't actually think there's ever been a situation where we have been able to talk for extended periods of time, and it has been great getting to know her more. She came over to the UK once, 20 years ago. Since then, lots of things have changed, but we're still family, and that's still lovely. Now to make sure I establish relationships with her children and the other little folk in the family, so that this can continue to the next generation too!
Thank you for visiting Karen - it was lovely to have you, and I really hope to see you again soon! :)
