Finally, we reached Cagnes-sur-Mer and the home of Sara’s son, James, his partner, Céline, and their eight-year-old daughter, Lois. The next day Sara’s daughter, Lucie, her husband, David Greig, and their son, Rory arrived. (Rory’s sister Annie couldn’t come as her term at St Andrew’s has started.)
It was great seeing James and Lucie again. The Macaulays were our next door neighbours in Edinburgh, so I really regard myself as an honorary aunty to the family.
Here they all are (except Céline who had to prepare for a training day which threatens to upset the weekend plans) at the pizza place round the corner. In the afternoon we sat in the tiny garden on the very comfy seats made out of wooden palettes!
