There we sat, Rob and I, with the family we had created with our love for each other: the bouncy Jeanette with her short chestnut hair and the thoughtful Christopher with his long, long, black hair. They are now living back in Perth after their 8 years in the UK. Tall, lovely Elwyn, here for a break from her sojourn in the UK. Tristan and Blaine, a devoted couple, and proud and loving parents of our darling Tom and their soon-to-born daughter. And joining us was my mother, Shirley Brine, the only survivor of Rob’s and my parents still with us. She loves to catch up with her grand-children and great-grand-children, and this was to be such an occasion.
Blaine had come up with this idea, so that my Mum could see everyone before the next grand-child arrived. A very thoughtful idea. She had chosen a cafe with an indoor playground so that Tom would have somewhere to play. We took turns in being with Tom as he climbed up and down and around.
The photos show a close and happy family, which is what we are.
I am in awe of what Rob and I have created!
