Sunday morning we got up early and went to meet Maureen and her daughter Erin at the train station. Mo is my mate in Ohio and was visiting England at the same time so we hooked up.

|At noon we met Leanne at the train Station too. Such a poignant and happy moment for these two.|
After settling Leanne in at my mums we were off to Chorley to meet with my dad, step-mum, sister and nieces and nephews. We had another lovely family meal and the kids got along instantly.
