One the highlights of my 2014 year was seeing my brother again after quite some time 🙂

We had a really lovely evening together and I felt that a lot of barriers that had been put up came down (mostly from my side). Our family has such a lot of baggage from a really topsy-turvy childhood and so often resentments and misunderstandings have stood in the way of what could/should be a loving relationship.

It’s amazing to me how things that happened in our childhood can have such long-term effects…even right into adulthood…..I’m grateful that I have had the opportunity to get to know my brother better. I shudder to think this may never have happened.  His lovely wife, my sister-in-law had a lot to do with the fences initially being brought down and the relationship to start being rebuilt. She is truly the best sister-in-law a person could ever hope for.

He was over in London for a couple of days in September last year and we met up one night when I too was in London and had an altogether lovely evening just talking and walking and talking.  This photo was a #selfie 😉 taken on the Southbank near the Oxo Tower and Gabriel’s Wharf.
