Late last year our extended family suggested a mega-family-reunion to coincide with a favourite uncle's 70th birthday. As the news was passed around - wonderfully, amazingly, everybody said "YES!"
So it will become a micro-family-reunion for the Stilwell Siblings. I'm looking forward to Helen arriving from Queensland on Friday, Anne from Hong Kong on Saturday, the big family bash on Sunday with Patti and Philip (yes, a brother!!) and then a week of being siblings together. This will cushion the impact of Paull, my globetrotting son, leaving for his new life in the Big Apple the same week. At least he gets to see all his Aunties (and Uncle) together in Australia before he goes. The picture above was taken on the last occasion of us being together all at once- was it 16!!*? years ago??
