I have just returned from a short trip back to the UK to visit family and friends and attend a hospital appointment. It was lovely to go back and see people we miss out here and to spend a bit of quality time with my parents. The children stayed behind with Dad due to commitments here. It was quite a novelty waking up in an empty bed with no small people crawling over me and eating all my lunch with no one trying to steal it from me. It is lovely being in Germany but going back home is also pretty good.
This is from earlier in the year when family came to visit us.
