You are all goin to think I am a bit nuts!!! (no Yvonne i'm not already!!)
It is my birthday on Monday and this morning I got a parcel through the post for my 21st birthday (and it a few years since I was 21!!)
To cut a bit of a long story short. My dad stopped talking to his sister when I was 16, and all conact was cut between all of us, I have 2 cousins as well. In the summer I made contact with one of my cousins on Facebook and he came to visit on his way to a wedding and we had a good catch up. Anyway this morning I got a parcel from my auntie with another parcel inside it that had been returned to her (my dad had put on it that we no longer lived at that address but we did). She hadn't opened it so there was a 21st card and a present as well as a lovely letter that she had written 10 years ago and a letter & card for this birthday saying she is glad we are all back in contact.
It has slightly restored my faith in my family that my dad had managed to totally destroy
