Isn't it always a paradox, one the one hand we feel as if we have been away forever but at the same time time has flown by so quickly. It seems like no time ago we were attending Jemma's graduation at Wolverhampton University and here we are contemplating packing our cases to travel home.
We were promised an Indian Summer and that is more or less what we have had. Most days have been sunny with very little rain, a perfect start to Autumn for Britain.
Jemma has been the genial host and has fed us well. Of course, balancing her new job teaching nursery children with hosting her ageing parents has not been easy. I'd like to think that we have minimised the disruption to her orderly life but having two more people in your house is bound to create issues especially when you are used to being on your own.
On the plus side, Pam and I have helped Jemma to regain control of her garden and the bathroom looks respectably clean again. We have also treated her to a couple of meals out and helped stock her larder.
