and into the welcome arms of family and friends
16.10.2014 - 19.10.2014
The ferry ride back across the channel brought feelings of relief, sadness, excitement, exhaustion and accomplishment. We had a much needed wine and positioned ourselves in the play area where the boys couldn't get up to too much trouble.
Our first stop in the UK was back to Surrey for another Rutherford rescue. I cannot explain the joy of being with friends after so long of it just being the 4 of us, and also the joy of being in an actual house! We could only stay for a night but it was the tonic that we needed.
We stopped in to see Lesley in London which was just wonderful, we missed her hugely
We had the most wonderful time at our darling friends Jane and Mike's wedding in Oxfordshire and my parents met us for babysitting duties at the hotel!
All together again we drove back up to Stoke, a relaxing journey for both Dad and Mylo!
It felt rather surreal being back here again, just as we left with nothing changed yet so much having happened.
It was such a special time spent with my parents, and for us all to be together, in one place at one time, at least until our next big journey in January 2015 when we will start our new chapter in New Zealand.
