HI Di! Lovely to read about your birthday--sounds like a wonderful day! :-)
Isn't it great to have family around!?! That was the best about my time in Norway, with my son, daughter and all three grandchildren, their friends, and some great trips. A very full and fun time. I feel I have had a feast I am will be going on for quite a while! More about it soon, with a pic or two... those of you on Facebook will have seen some already.
Thanks Bert, for your message, too. :-)
As they say in Norway, "Bort aer bra, men hjem aer best", which means ""Away is great, but home is best". I'm still somewhere in a lovely space between the two at present.
Best to all, and have a fantastic time at the Harrogate Reunion! :-)
