my home, but the home of my parents, and yes I will be here in about 3 and a half weeks with my Mum, Dad and siblings for a wee family reunion. Although all us kids were born in Shetland we haven't all been here at the same time since around 1978 (we lived a lot of other places in Scotland and then my parents retired back here).
I haven't had this long of a gap since being in Scotland (it will be two years) and since seeing my siblings (my sister and 2nd child, younger brother and wife are coming from New Zealand). I haven't even met my wee niece yet! I've managed to connect to my sister's flight in L.A so we can catch up on the long plane ride to Scotland! I also haven't been away from my kids for more than a couple of days so that is going to be strange... I always get the feeling that I'm missing something (as in misplaced it) when I'm away from them!
On top of seeing all the family, I'll get to visit Shetland as a knitter (haven't done that before as it's been 6 years since I was in that particular part of Scotland)...can't wait! My parents live close to Jamieson's Mill so I'm hoping for a wee private tour ( Dad knows Mr. Jamieson) and also to fill up a spare suitcase I'll be bringing along (although if you remember the basket from my previous post you'll know I hardly need anymore Jamieson's yarn...but there is Eunny Jang's Autumn Rose)......
Let's see what knitterly things I can pack into 7 days!
