She has been super excited for the last couple of weeks because we've arranged for my youngest DGD to come and stay, and they haven't seen each other for three years. DD and I exchanged messages a few days ago, and DGD was in a similar state of excitement.
So, Tuesday, Small Person was delivered to my door ny her Mum. We jumped in my car and drove for 2 and a half hours to collect DGD. They spent about 15 mins in DGD's bedroom, while I had a cup of tea and chatted to my DGSs.

Small Person was tired and quiet on the way home. We got home and had about half an hour before her mum came to take her riding.
And that's the end of the Easter Holidays.
It's all been a bit of an abrupt end, and I'll miss her. It's a long time to the next holidays.
