We have had a lovely, lovely time in the Costa Brava. Five of us, family, loads of silly jokes, swimming, good food, really chilling out and loving being away from the daily grind. All our phones were off and sadly, this meant that we did not pick up the message to call home urgently. While we were away, Big J`s dad, Ivan, passed away. He was large and colourful and funny, and so accepting of J`s new family. J is at home now, with his mum and sisters. This week he will be looking after them and I will be here looking after the girls and A if he is around and needs it. My little brother marries on Wednesday, so we will celebrate with him and Kris. On Friday, we will remember Ivan and the girls will fly to Japan.
