I got a call yesterday from my mum in England to say she had decided to come for a visit in July :-)
The last time we saw each other was April '07 when she was visiting, but it was just after I was diagnosed with Graves Disease and so she spent most of her visit looking after me as I was pretty sick. She is flying in for just over 3 weeks from July 1st-26th and will experience her first Independence Day in the USA, amongst other things.
I am very excited, lots of things have changed around here since her last visit - the yard, my car and the size of my butt! Now I need to start thinking about what I need her to bring for me that's not illegal - like British Sausages! ;-)
