Here's the Winfield Family: James, Laura, Tommy and Tommy's Little Sister, due in February.
They have been my surrogate family in Cape Town.
It's not that I wouldn't have had a good time without them ... it's that because of them I knew I always had a cure for homesickness on hand. When you're a stranger in a foreign land it's such a relief to be with people who know you well, who get your jokes and your peculiar Irish ways.
Thank you for sharing your home and family with me.
