Friends and Family in Istanbul

Levy, Jax and Rosie arrived on Thursday. They had been staying with Levy's parents in Levent during their Easter break. We had such fun catching up and, of course, dining out! They are staying in one of the school apartments in our block. On Saturday, we also met Levy's sister, Sibel, who joined us for dinner at Mid Point.We had a great evening and our lovely waitress, Yeliz, ensured we were well served and kept us amused.

I have been showing Jax around our district. Both she and Rosie loved the walkway by the sea and enjoyed the playground and fitness park. Rosie is such a bright little girl and has an amazing vocabulary for a two-year-old. She made me realise how much I miss seeing my own grandchildren.

Only another ten days and I will be going to South Africa and will get to have quality time with Shannon and Jordan. I am also looking forward to seeing my great nephews, Liam and Kieran in Jo'burg and Richard, down on the farm in The Cape. Jane has written about family in her most recent blog and I hope to see more of our extended family when I am there. Jane is right. Family is very important.
