Blue v Pink balance

Our family now comprises four sons, two daughters in law, four grandchildren and two fiancées. The balance of blue to pink is soon to be levelled and Lin won’t be outnumbered anymore.

    It has been quite an interesting few months!! Best wishes to them all.

    The question is – will they have a double wedding so that you only have to use up one set of your “allocation” in the UK? However if Toby got married in South Africa that would be an incredible trip on Play d’eau!
    You both must be so happy for the 4 of them.
    Well done all!
