sadly, the occasion was a funeral. phil’s aunt miggie past away after a two and a half year battle with cancer. it was a beautiful service and wonderful to hear about all the lives she touched and i’ll always remember how welcoming she was when i became the next ‘mrs caroe’ in the family. despite the sad circumstances, it was lovely to meet up with family on phil’s side so soon after our holiday with my lot. the only grandchild missing from the above photo is eli, as he was asleep in his pram.
