Family get togethers need to be treasured as the years go by and although not all of the family is here, five out of eight is pretty good considering our homes are quite far apart.
Brother Norman is from Christchurch and his home suffered some damage in the recent earthquakes but he came through a lot better off than many.
Linda is standing on his left and yours truly on the right.
Sister Barbara is sitting with our Mum.
More family to visit this week but not sufficient for another family portrait like this one.
