Due to a houseful of family and friends over the week between Christmas and New Year I got behind on my JOY book. I have almost finished it now just a few finishing touches and a letter or two to add.
My youngest niece, her partner and their toddler Liam came to stay with us on Tuesday. The girls (my nieces) have always called me Auntie Pea. My friends little girl Carys knows me as Nanny Dog and I got myself in a right state with Liam as to what my name was..... especially when Liam thought I was my sister and called me nanny a few times.
I was a little worried as at one point I was being called "Nanny Auntie Dog Pea!!!!!!" WTH???????
Today we did a speed tour of the Island. Rob used to holiday here as a child with his family and wanted to go and see all the places that he could remember from these trips. Kirsten and I were just happy to be able to spend time together as it's been a whole year since we last saw each other. It seemed amazing to think that Liam was a babe in arms the last (and first time) I saw him. Now he is a non-stop toddler, into everything and chattering away to us and following the dogs all about the house.
