A friend calls
As we prepared to leave the UK we were inundated with promises of visits from friends and family. And before we had even finished unpacking our boxes on the other side, one friend ensured her promise did not go unfulfilled. Tinashe booked her tickets to the USA so fast I thought she might arrive at the same time as our goods that were still on the water! She arrived on 15th June and had a whirlwind 3 week stay covering Morayo-Hope's graduation from Kindergarten, both kids birthdays, trips to NY, Boston, Baltimore & Washington DC; and countless lazy days at the pool and beach. As I have now been sent threats ranging from "If you mess with me I'll take your man" to "Beware!Danger of Death!" - I am now releasing all evidence of her visit here, starting with her arrival.
Morayo-Hope & Judah had no idea who was coming. All they knew was we were waiting for someone here at the airport. Morayo-Hope guessed it might be Tinashe or my sister, Carol. Judah, in true dude style, just chilled in his buggy (or restraining device of my choice), waiting for the drama to pass over. Kola was trying desperately not to accidentally let the cat out of the bag as we waited for what felt like eternity before she emerged from yonder tunnel. His eyes said "Are you sure Tinashe is coming today?". Mine replied "Don't even open your mouth."
She finally emerged and was greeted by an overexcited 5 year old. It was the beginning of a summer of excitement!
