Today was a reunion for the Hiders - the rather large family on my Dad's side. He originally had 13 brothers and sisters, which resulted in a lot of uncles, aunts, cousins etc. These days there is just Dad and his remaining 5 sisters, plus their extended families. There was about 30 folk there, altogether. It took us over 2 hours to drive there, because of the tailback from an accident on the M25, and another 2 hours to get back, via the Christmas lights in Central London. The reunion itself was good fun, if quite exhausting for me. Nice food and chats with various relatives. I need a bit of a rest to recover now though!
