We are family.....

...I've got one of my brothers and sister with me!





(and they were being very silly for this photoshoot)!

I'm back in Scotland where it is of course pissing down! However I keep telling everyone I didn't come for the weather.....I came to see the family (and some friends).....and to meet and spend time with my new wee niece (Georgia) and hopefully help out her mummy who is a little sore and sleep deprived right now!

I spent the weekend with my sister in Edinburgh which was so lovely and much needed on both our parts. She came from a lot further away than I as she now lives in New Zealand. We haven't seen each other for 2 years and haven't spent time alone in far longer than that.....of course we went shopping together, went for coffee, went to the pub, had nice food and wine and did lots of chatting. She's off up to Shetland this week to see my parents but we'll re-connect next week when she comes to meet this lovely little bundle of cuteness!

Plenty more pictures of her to come!

What wonderful family photos... I particularly like that first one of you and your siblings. The matching smiles on your so similar faces are just charming.
And yes... she is indeed a lovely bundle of cuteness!

G. Great to see you with Betty. She has been hankering to get alongside you for those long 2 years. Next time we'll all do it and for much longer. Nick

What a sweetie! And you all seem to be having a blast, but don't forget about us back home. Know that you are missed; Julia sniffles w/ every stitch she knits, and Kelly's arm-warmers are wasting away w/out you!

Looking at all of your lovely Celtic faces is like watching an episode of Masterpiece Theatre or PBS Mystery.

These pictures are so heartwarming - The hilarity with missed siblings (I bet my brother and I look like this when we get together - the thought makes me smile!) the baby, so sweet. So glad you've been having such a wonderful trip :)
