    Hi Anne, can’t families be complicated. My son went to school with an ad whose niece was several years older too. It tickles me to think of an older child calling a littley Uncle or Aunt!… The children look like they are having fun even if the chair isn’t the most comfortable…. Lickey Hills sounds like a place childhood memories are made!

      yes, there is so much confusion in our family, it’s hard to keep track. Sadly I don’t see too much of my family these days but I still have my brother and his family. The Lickey Hills is a fantastic place and I have so many memories from there if I wrote my biography then I’d have to devote a whole chapter, or two to the place. x

      oooh I wonder if they belong to a chain of pubs. It hasn’t always been there, but then the pub has changed a lot. It kind of reminds me of the huge deckchairs they have at Haven holiday camps.

    My husband’s family gets a bit confusing in this way as well. There are almost 20 years between his eldest and youngest uncle so there’s a broad range of cousins and children of cousins. And then we toss in that my hubs is not biologically related to any of them, and it’s a mega wild story!
    Lovely photos – and I think it’s perfectly fine to “borrow” other lovely photos of the family. I do it too! 😉

      Yes families can be confusing, both me and both my brothers have had families with one marriage then gone into another relationship once our children have grown. But with the age difference between me and my brothers it makes things even more confusing, I’m not that much younger than their older children and my older children are similar in age to their younger children! Ok, I’m confusing myself now 🙂

    Oh that chair does look very uncomfortable, they don’t seem to mind too much.

    My family is a bit like yours and I totally get the whole not following and getting confused!
