The cat is out of the bag on our well guarded secret. Joel came to Blighty with me and was in on the plan to surprise Grandad and the rest of the family. Grandad was at the airport and I'd got Joel to stay behind me until the last moment so that he cold jump out on Grandad. Now that we're here I think Joel will be thoroughly spoilt and well cared for which is great.
The flight was great and as there were no personal TV screens Joel actually slept quite well. He also ate the food on the plane so he's definitely growing up.
Tomorrow Joel will spend the day with Sal (his godmother) which he's really excited about. I'll be going to Wimbledon with Grandad to collect the last of our personal effects from Susan's house. This afternoon I'll start getting the boxes out of Grandad's attic and then the real work will begin.
