As we don’t live in the same country as the majority of our family we try to make the effort to either have them come over here to us or for us to go to them.
For many years we were not really able to afford to country hop. Now we actually budget for it. I think it is important for Molly and Lulu to know who their family is.
My sister’s partner Ally is a fairly recent addition to our tribe but has slotted in well. Some of us are particularly fond of the special skill set she brings to the table. Lulu loves her for her hair styling skills. I am partial to her ironing, and gin pouring skills.
Of course Ally is far more than our personal gin-decanting, ironing, coiffeuse. She is my sister’s partner and we love her.
