Blimey We Were in Blighty!

For those of you who don’t already know,  Matt, Tristan and I had to head back to the UK about 3 weeks ago.  Matt’s Mum wasn’t very well and so we downed tools, booked a flight at 11am Sat and were in the UK by Monday morning.  Crazy.  No planning, just throw things in a suitcase and get going.

We are incredibly blessed to have amazing friends here in Adelaide who made us dinner, helped us pack, dropped us to the airport and took care of the house and business premises whilst we were away.  We were also lucky that our friend Darren had space for the furry children (with about an hours notice I might add!).  I had also decided to apply for Tristan’s passports and they both had arrived about 3 days before (phew!).

The reason that I didn’t organise curry nights or even let anyone know we were back was because we just didn’t have time!  We landed and were back and forth to the hospital every other day.  We still managed to introduce Tristan to the vast majority of his relatives in England – which was ace – but we were there to see Matt’s mum and help her get better.  She did, you’ll be glad to hear – she’s still in hospital but now it’s a case of her being firmly on the road to recovery – disaster averted!

In spite of all the craziness we did get to meet our niece and god daughter, as well as Adi and Sarah’s girls.  We got to walk along the river Avon briefly – I was very upset to see my tea shop has been replaced by an ice creamery…. :(.   Matt had sausages at Becketts Farm but was upset by the new owners of The Swan and their lack of culinary expertise.

It was a balmy 25 – 32 degrees and the sun shone most days!  Very strange. I didn’t really believe mum when she sad it was warm so I only packed 3 t-shirts … oops.  It was lovely though.

Sadly, the trip does mean that the funds we were saving for our trip back to the UK at Christmas are now gone.  So no holiday in the snow for us!  At least we still got to spend some time with you all back in the UK 🙂
