It’s very rare that my brothers and I all manage to be in the same place at the same time so last week was kind of special. We managed it twice. And not just us, either. Both my mum and dad were there too. And my half-brother and sister. And one of my step-brothers. And all my nephews and nieces. It was pretty amazing. In fact, all of last week was pretty amazing. I can’t wait to share some of the pictures with you. For now, I’ll just show you these, from a party at Billy and Adeline’s. They’ve just bought her grandmother’s old home. It’s lovely and the garden is HUGE. At the end of the garden, after the vegetable patch, is an orchard mingled with pine trees which smells like the seaside summer holidays of my childhood. That’s where the party was held, with a pinata for the children and a fire-pit dug into the ground for cooking the meat, mojitos for the adults and a paddling pool for the little ones… It was beautiful and lovely and HOT and happy. Billy and Adeline both invited their families and I pretended to be the official event photographer. This is everyone:And this is my family:Here’s the extra info: Agnès and Alice (Harry and Charlie’s partners) are sisters. Clotilde (5) and Sam (2.5) belong to Charlie and Alice. Hanaé (3) and Candice (1 month) belong to Billy and Adeline. Silas (4 months) belongs to Harry and Agnès. And Amélie (nearly 7) and Charlie (2), of course, belong to me and Hanno.
For the next picture, I asked everyone to stick their tongues out. Yup. Not a professional photographer for a reason.
