Family Time



Other things may change us, but we start and end with the family.

This weekend I’m going on a little road trip with my sister, to Yorkshire to see this lady


AKA Granny Burn :)

We will be spending the weekend getting Granny to show us her sewing, watching DVD’s  (hmmmm what to take? I’m tempted to take Lost in Austin..Love that series) and shopping in the Market town just up the road.  (Scarves from the market as I’ve managed to lose 2 of mine :(, Cosy Blanket from Barkers which I saw last time we were there but when we went to buy it the store was SHUT!, Magazines, Books, ooooo the wish list is endless!)

Granny doesn't  like to go out after dark anymore, but that’s ok as we will be more than happy to snuggle up with a blanket and break out the wine and chocs!

I’m so looking forward to spending time with my sis, even tho i talk to her every day and see her probably every other day, it will be nice for us to be ‘running away’ together for a couple of days.

Oh, and as it’s been pointed out to me that I actually missed my family out of my last post (what the hell was i thinking!?)

Here is a little tribute to them :)

old computer pics 022

Mum, Dad, Sis and littlest niece Aileen somewhere on holiday in Scotland.  My parents are both Scottish and regularly go back for holidays.

I really loved changing schools and making new friends.  And look.  I don’t think they did a bad job bringing me up!?  I mean, I’m not a bad kid really ;)


And here is Aileen again. Cuteness.


BIL Steve :) playing at war (you’d be amazed what my family get up to in their spare time lol)  Sis and Steve got together when she was 18 (I think) she got pregnant with Aarron and the rest, as they say is history :)

And Aarron, my Nephew.  Typical boy, the only pic I have of him is from way back when. And yep they are somewhere in Scotland on holiday again :)

sis and me with cupcakes

Me & my big sis :) Caroline. BTW we don’t usually dress  like Stepford Wives. It was fancy dress. Honest.

I can have fun with her, I can moan and whinge at her, or we can just sit and eat cupcakes.  It’s all good :)


So there you have us. My closest family members…apart from Mr D, maybe he will get a post all of his own ;)
