This year we were able to see all our siblings. Quite a feat!
We hadn't seen Pat's family for a few years, but this year we were in the UK at the time of a joint 40th / 65th birthday barbecue, so there was a general gathering of the clans of the Hodgsons and erstwhile Hodgsons. It was good to see Pat's three sisters, her brother and a good proportion of her nephews and nieces.
One of my brothers-in-law has been in hospital for a few months after suffering a stroke, so I was very keen to see him and my sister. Then that evening my other sister, her children and some of her grand-children were met for Friday Family Festive Fun, so we joined them and marvelled at how big all the children are getting.
