In exactly ten days my family will touch down in the UK. I’m so excited mainly because I realise how fortunate we are to all be together as we celebrate my dads sixtieth birthday. So for the next few days I will inform anybody who will listen about our impending reunion. Honestly I speak to many immigrants who haven’t been back to their native countries or had any family visit them in their new surroundings. One of my mates has her parents visiting at the moment. They’re here to celebrate her fortieth birthday with her. I think that’s pretty awesome.
So for the next few days I’ve got to keep myself grounded for fear I might fly away from far too much excitement. Let the countdown begin!
