It is so lovely for us, who live about 1500 kilometres by road from our nearest close relatives, to have been able to spend lots of time with family over the past month.

First, of course, was our big road trip to Sydney for my brother's wedding and Christmas.

Even better, less than a week after we returned home to Adelaide, my sister-in-law arrived from Sydney with my three gorgeous nieces, who are 5, 8 and 9.  My kids love seeing their cousins and doing ordinary things with them, such as sharing meals, playing board games, and going to the park.

I think they appreciate each other all the more because they see each other so rarely.  Perhaps absence really does make the heart grow fonder?
