SUYL – Family

On Kelly‘s blog this week we are linking up to talk about our family. I am the middley of our gang – eldest child, with mum and dad above and sis and bro below. We’ve always been a pretty tight little unit, and even though distance and years now separate us, we all get on quite well (having the same Thornley sense of humour definitely helps!).

Mum and Dad are both 21 again and live up in the wilds of Scotland.

Sian lives with her fiancé Chris in Oban, in the west of Scotland.

Peter’s at university in Aberdeen (yep, you guessed it – Scotland!).

And Matthew and I are our own little family, I guess, here in London, living our own little life. And we’re also part of his family (who are awesome also. I can’t wait to visit over Easter!).

Many parts, making one family. Divided by geography, linked by love!

Here are a few pics!

Have a lovely Friday!
