Family Affair

blogged by me domestic goddess On 7/23/2006 11:11:00 PM
July has been an amazing month for me and my family.
a little background so things become clearer. I don't speak to my mum or sister, and haven't for 3 years, not due completely to myself, but they have made no effort to see the girls, and this upsets both peter and I. My mum and I have had a very traumatic relationship from the start to be honest and my mum and dad divorced when we were young and we never say my dads side of the family. So back to the present day, no contact with my mum, my dad is now closer to me, and I have now met Steve my cousin, and today my Auntie Rita came to visit us and Dad with my cousin Jacqui who I last saw when I was about 9!!!! This has just been brilliant. Jacqui and I have so much in common and I am dead jealous as she came armed with a Canon EOS!!
It has been so lovely being a round family that I have never really had a relationship with and whom have so much love to give. A layout is sooo in the making of this photo of me and Jacqui. Infact I am going to ask her if I can use this picture of us for a project I have to do for a magazine.
Next weekend we have the family BBQ and 50 relatives of Peter arrive at ours in the afternoon on Saturday. Another bunch of relatives whom I will be meeting for the first time! Can you actually believe it. Its is truly fantastic. I don't think my Dad knows what has hit him this month!He was so overwhelmed at seeing his sister today. It has been nearly a year since they last saw each other. My Auntie is also registered disabled so does struggle getting aroud and my Uncle Don is a poorly man these days after a stroke a year or so ago.

I am also excited about the new angel kisses arriving this week. New sizes in the daisy and also more black!!!

Off to plan my layout now and catch up with you all tomorrow
big hugs
Anna xx
