Firstly, I'm sorry that this is a month over due to be written, Spring fever has hit me and I am out in the garden and freshening up the apartments instead of late nights on the computer writing a blog.
Hope you are all enjoying the sunshine too, here is what happened last month.........
Welcome to Norfolk Bronte.
It has been a long wait since April(when Nic was here) for a cousin to arrive for Teddy and Sienna, and it was a long night waiting for them to arrive a few weeks ago.
We watched the plane lights arrive out of the darkness and Mandy(my sister),Dave and Bronte alight from the plane with big waves and smiles, and then the waiting again for them to come through customs.
Teddy waited patiently looking at everyone coming through the doors, Sienna ran around and then laid down on the floor and made angels(like snow or sand angels, without the snow or sand.) Uncle Dave came through the doors first, with huge bags of supplies for us.
A catch up and a cup of tea at Mary and Bernies, saw the reunited cousins already getting on well with Bronte reading them stories.
Mary and Mandy and myself catching up on craft magazines, while Basil the cat grabs a lap to purr on.
On day 2 which was really day 1 because of the late evening arrival saw us unpacking parcels of gratefully received items, *Note, if you are coming to Norfolk, always bring Nappies, they will be most welcome, as they(and toilet paper and cereal) arrive by ship and are light but bulky, but the freight is charged by volume. see also McDonalds toys which are pounced on by the kids like treasure, even though we hardly ever went to McDonalds before we moved to Norfolk.
Charles sitting behind one of my towers of nappies and wipes, also my new mini drill and engraver, just wait to see what I can make from that.
That day, Sarah and Emily(my Cousin Miriam in NZ's girls) arrived on the kiwi plane and in the night it was time to celebrate.
Mandy and Daves big 10th wedding anniversary, I was their bridesmaid and it was wonderful to share the occasion again with them.

We celebrated their 10th anniversary with a fish fry at Devon house which was lovely, I attempted a chocolate cheesecake for them which worked out so well, that I entered one in the Norfolk show(more about that in the next blog..........
She was quite happily sharing with Roany the dog, using the same spoon and even Digby got the last spoonful.
It was a funny end to a great night.
