The family British, Colombian, French. We're sisters, brothers, husbands, wives, sons, cousins, aunties, uncles, nephews and granny. Above all, we're a family.
In 2012, our nephew, The Brainy Boy, married The Colombian and if you're a long time reader, you might recall that the wedding was in two parts: the civil wedding was held in the UK, with the church wedding held in Cartagena, Colombia.

Older brother, Cachirulo, adores The Boy Child and spent most of the afternoon attached … Continue reading Los Pequeňos at Two

I've added a page to The Boy Child's album - one about being runner-up for a prize initiated by the family of his teacher who died.
