This past week we’ve been blessed to have my parents come to stay with us. Mum and Dad have been to the UK before – the last time they came for our wedding. This time was special because we got to host them and show them our little house and where we work – and the surrounding area that we now call home.
We visited some of the local attractions that we enjoy: The Lake District – including Aira Force, Keswick and Windermere, Carlisle castle and cathedral and Tullie House museum and lastly Birdoswald – a roman fort along Hadrian’s Wall. We were fortunate to have good weather on three of the days they were with us, which is a good effort for the county of Cumbria.
We plan to move to Australia in late March next year and we will stay for a time with my parents in their home. It was good to show some hospitality to them in anticipation.
