My Brother is getting Nervous For Two Reasons

Jamie, who lives in Australia, is coming to stay with us in about 10 days time. He rang up and enquired about the weather - well - we all know what the weather has been like over here - so Jamie, take the hint from the photograph. This is our collection of coats, you will be welcome to take your pick. The hat on the top is for Jamie or Husband, depending upon who is the baldest!

The other issue I know my brother will be pondering upon is whether we have a sufficient stock of Red Currant Jelly in the cupboard. We, as a family, have always eaten large quantities of the stuff and Jamie has brought up his four children in Australia to do the same. Some time ago Jamie informed us that over in OZ there was a dearth of the brand of red currant jelly that the family liked. I imagined loads of jelly swilling around in tankers hastily making their way to Australia, but I know their import regulations are strict so I did not organise a shipping fleet.

He will be well prepared with the oilskins. (Hope he won't need them)
What do you eat the red currant jelly with?

I always get my Mum to pack her bag with Watties Baked Beans and Creamed Corn when she arrives from New Zealand. There always seem to be the little things we miss.

I think we've had all the rain we need for a while. Hopefully the weather will be kind for your brother. Or maybe snow:-)

Why is your brother leaving behind the Australian summer to visit the UK in one of the gloomiest months of the year?

You may be asking why anyone would leave sunny Australia at this time of year. My brother is coming to the UK and braving the elements to see my father who celebrates his 90th birthday
