On keeping one's mouth shut

I am having the pleasure of entertaining overseas' visitors at the moment. My aunt and her neighbour, who travel a lot together and my cousing who I haven't seen for forty years. It is interesting and good to catch up.

There is a trust about family which is almost automatically there, though at times we are careless with the way we talk to each other; assuming that we know each other better than we do. We don't discover that we have said too much, until we have said too much. So far I think I have only done it twice.

And of course they don't like it when you beat them at Monopoly! Now that is family!!
