Yesterday evening Kate, Sean, Amelie and myself attended a mass for Madeleine. It was organised by ex-colleagues of Kate’s aunt who work in the East Midlands and took place in a small intimate chapel and was attended by 20 people including two local priests. Sean and Amelie were very vocal, demonstrating how much they know about Christmas and “baby Jesus” which brought a smile to everyone’s face! The little presents and chocolates they were given certainly made them very happy!
Tomorrow my mum and aunt are coming to visit for a few days. Sean and Amelie are very excited, as they have not seen their ‘granny’ for over a month. They do of course miss Madeleine very much and all of our family are still praying and hoping for her safe return.
