It has been indeed a good weekend. Although we have always remained in contact, my last visit was 10 years ago, they have visited me about 7 years ago. So you can imagine that I did not recognized my nieces at once! Despite of that, I felt at home at the second I stepped out of the car. Even for people I met only once, I was definitely family. This is a great mood booster, believe me.
And this gathering was only a teaser: my brother in law turns 50 in June. He, his mother and one of our nieces are born on the same day. My daughter Emilie was born 2 weeks later. So there will be a big familly party, with bbq at the river and many other things which I don't know yet. This time I did not hesitate and said yes at once :-). I'm sure that will be fun.
The other surprise was frost. I have not seen such a frost for ages, about 23 years since the weather is mild here, and my house is in the middle of the village. Of course I don't miss the "cleaning the windows of the car" part, but I miss the beauty of the landscape. So i took some pictures back home:
Have a nice week!
