Well the weather hasn't got any better here since I last blogged, It would have been nice to have had some sunshine this morning to meet the HMS Ocean on her return to Devonport where Sarah Ben Charlotte and myself went to welcome home Mark Sarah's husband (my son in law). Ben and Charlotte were so excited to be meeting Daddy off the big ship but I am afraid we got a soaking in the rain while we waited for the Ocean to pull up along side, it was quite a long wait and I think the children thought they were never going to see Daddy and at one stage Charlotte was crying for her Daddy and Sarah had to console her that daddy would be here soon
I was so happy to have been invited to share this special day with them.
Charlotte and Ben were so glad to have their Daddy with them, and it goes without saying that Sarah was very happy.
Mark took us on board and showed us where he had been living for the last 3 months.
All in all it was worth the wait and the rain, it turned out to be a lovely memorable day.
Here are some pics of the Ocean arriving, they are not brilliant as it was really wet and there was a crowd of 500 people there but they are a nice reminder for me.
There is a very happy family across the road.
