Many thanks to you all again for your very kind comments and congratulations - they are very much appreciated.

Am looking forward to getting my desktop pc back online in the near future so I can actually process and upload some more pics!

My daughter and her partner had been overseas visiting relatives and their 4year old son Kai stayed with me (grandmother - he calls me Emi).
The were away for 3 1/2 weeks which is a long long time in the life of a 4 year old. This photo is the first hug Kai had with his Mum when she came out of customs. I didn't think he was ever going to let her go but eventually she peeled his little arms from around her neck as she was having trouble breathing!
