Brigitte and her two lovely daughters Alexandra and Christiane took fantastic care of our eldest daughter when she was living in the United States. I know that Xan takes the occasional peep at my blog, so I want to say a very big thank you to them all for making Nell so welcome in their family. We look forward to returning the compliment one day! And good luck to Xan who has recently launched her own blog.
Apparently Xan enjoys the English sense of humour, so I hunted around and found this joke for her. (It's about goldfish to keep with the theme of swimming.....)
There were two goldfish in a tank and one said to the other: 'Hey - how do you drive this thing?'
