My girls are together in London this weekend along with their families and my oldest friends son.  It's the first time they've been together since October 2005. I hope they all have a good time :0)

Orchids at Kew Gardens

My daughter Ruth took me and my youngest grandson to Kew Gardens today to see the Orchid Festival. It's very handy to where they live, just a bus-ride away.
Sadly, The Boy Child is not as one with all things nature and was something of a moaning minnie.  But all the same, it was a very pleasant couple of hours.

Night Walks

My youngest grandson has discovered the delights of a night walk.
Sounds exciting, especially when you are only seven.
The reality is that he goes off with Daddy to walk the pooch around the small part of a nearby common after supper.
Hi-vis jackets and torches are the order of the day.

Quiet Time

On occasion, my youngest grandson likes to end the day quietly.
It's a practice that I'm inclined to think more of us should adopt.

Birthday boys

Today, my younger grandson reached the wonderful age of seven, whilst next week the teenage grandson will reach the more grown up age of seventeen.
~ the seven year old ~
There maybe a ten year gap in age and they may live at opposite ends of the country, but they do love each other and of course, I love them both.
Happy birthday to Granny's boys!

Try again!

Not much to report on my venture into the land of blogging and I'm not sure if the coming year will be any better.
It's been a year of highs and lows but as 2013 comes to a close I remember to count my blessings.
If anyone reads this, I wish you a very happy new year. May it be filled with good health, love and laughter.

A Visitor

Just look at who has come to stay with me this week!
Ruth has dropped him off and it's just the two of us until she comes back to collect him on Saturday.
Such adventures we will have!
