We got stuck in a traffic jam on our way back to Birmingham. What ought to have taken one hour, took around three and half.
Aunty Anne (Bill's Mother's sister), Uncle Mick, cousin's Anthony and Lee and their families lived in Wolverhampton, which is only around 20 minutes from Birmingham, so we popped by one afternoon to say G'Day. Aunty Anne said that if she'd passed Billy in the street she would have recognised him instantly - that he hadn't changed in 40 years.Naturally Bill was chuffed to hear this. Aunty Anne also said Bill looked a lot like his Dad. Interestingly, we were told that the Woolley's (Bill's mothers side of the family) were from Ironbridge, that we'd recently visited.
Bill's cousins Anthony and Lee remembered throwing the boomerangs Bill's family had brought as gifts from Australia back in 1973. Anthony had kept his all those years, but unfortunately Lee lost his on the very first throw. Ariel and Brandi-Chanel thought that Aunty Anne looked a lot like their Nana, and that she even had the same reactions - especially when we told her about the outback and all the creepy crawlies - teehee!!!
