We had a lovely time last week while Daniel and Jasmine were here with us. They stayed from the previous Friday night until Sunday so they were with us for quite a while this time but I'm always sad when their time with us comes to an end.
We had a good mix of days out and time spent together at home, and they went off and did their own thing for some of the time too. It was a shame that Eleanor and Jacob were working but they came round most evenings and we chatted, played games and enjoyed the time all together.
As Jasmine comes from Colorado, a land locked state in the US, she hasn't had many holidays by the sea so trips to the seaside were requested. We spent a day in Whitby with a detour to Sandsend, and a day in Bridlington. I'm really enjoying my days out at the coast this year, we've been quite a few times now after only a couple of visits last year owing to the coronavirus restrictions.
I think the next time we'll see Daniel and Jasmine will be Christmas, though we've had some good news, they're hoping to move back up north at the beginning of next year so they will be flat hunting when they come next time. They'll take a short-term rental while they look for a house to buy. I will be so pleased to have all my family close by again.
