Hiya family!

Just home from a weekend in Christchurch. Main purpose of the trip was for Caitlin's surprise hen's night which went off fabulously - first she knew of it was when we all turned up on her doorstep with her costume! We had a fantastic time gas-bagging the night away, dressing her and her soon to be sister-in-law up in toilet paper wedding dresses and making it our mission to try every flavour of Rekorderlig cider. Mum we need to get you trying one of these!

Spent time with Jenny and Gran which was lovely. Gran is so looking forward to seeing you at Christmas, Mark! She had lots of spark this weekend and plenty of her old humour. Always sad to see her getting muddled in conversation but apart from a cough she really was looking well.

Home now and after 2 very late nights I'm looking forward to an early night. Much love to all of you
