Happy Birthday Uncle Jamie

You know that part in Love Actually where the kids say “I hate Uncle Jamie!” Well, its kind of a refrain in our family. Today my lanky little brother turns 25. Where did that time go? Seems only yesterday we were having birthday parties for him with themes like “knights in shining armour” and “dinosaurs”. This is the first family birthday I have missed, and its the first in a long string over the next few months. It’s amazing how an occasion like this, where you would normally be home with loved ones, can make you feel the 15 000 km distance so profoundly. Well, before I have to go in search of tissues, happy birthday Jamie. We love you xx
