thanks Johanna! I am his big sister but there is only 18 months between as against 9 years between our youngest brother so we are very close! Huge get together on Sunday with both brothers and my mum and partner. Only one missing will be my dad but he won't be there due to their divorce many years ago. Very sad really but I'm hoping this will be wonderful anyway! I hate him living so far away! hurray for iMessage and FaceTime!
