Visitors



I've had staying visitors; my sister, my niece, my two grand-nieces and their cat. They were in-transit from northern Scotland to northern England and stopped off for two nights to let the furniture van catch up.

My big/little sister (big because she is older and little ....) was helping her daughter with the move.

It was excellent seeing them all, although our reaction to the cat was interesting. She was lovely and very sweet tempered, but recalled bittersweet memories of our own two who died not that long ago, although she looked nothing like them.

P.S. Is it grand-niece or great-niece?

I think it's great-niece, by analogy with great aunt; grandchild similarly with grandmother.
