British People Close to my Heart

Maddy. We've been friends for 30 years. She's a girl...See?

Maddy's mum and dad. Tom and Nina were my de facto parents when I was living in London; I was poor and far from home and they took me under their wings. They are still adorable.

Max is my ~ sort of ~ nephew*. He likes tractors and lambs.

Max walks like a drunken sailor. He is seen here surveying the manor grounds.

*Max is the son of an ex-boyfriend for whom I still carry a (teeny, tiny) torch 30 years and a couple of husbands later and who also happens to be Maddy's brother and Tom and Nina's son.
See what I mean about my ~ sort of ~ nephew?

P.S. Max's mother is a beautiful and sweet member of the British aristocracy. And who the hell can compete with that?
