Granny has fun


Hello There.

Yes, it is really me.
I don’t know why I haven’t blogged.
I have had stuff to say.
Most of which has drifted out of my brain.
I wondered if I had had given up blogging.
I have been doing it for years.
But, I don’t think so.
I have just had a very LONG break.

My son flew me down to Cape Town the weekend of the 1st of February.
It was my granddaughter’s 21st
She is the one I adopted and we are close.
We didn’t tell her I was coming.
He kept her talking and I walked up behind her.
When she saw me she threw herself into my arms and burst into tears.
I do hope they were tears of joy!

It was wonderful.
My elder daughter and my son in law and my youngest grandson were there.
Both my sons and their wives.
My younger daughter couldn’t make it but her elder son was there.
We hadn’t seen each other for years and we had a lovely bonding session.
I was in my element.
Damn, I miss my offspring.

On the morning of the party my younger son treated me to a treatment at a physiotherapist.
He was blind.
So I didn’t wear any lipstick.
He was very good.
By the next day.
However, when he finished the treatment I came out with a couple of pains I hadn’t had before we arrived.

I arrived in Cape Town late afternoon on the Friday and left again early hours of Sunday morning.
A real flying visit but worth every minute.

I have more to tell you but I don’t want to overwhelm you.
Or bore you to tears.
Now let me see if I can remember how to get into WordPress.
I am doing this in Word in case the gremlins take revenge on me.

Oh yes, the photo.
From left to right.
My grandson.
My elder daughter….she is 47 and I think she looks fantastic.
The birthday girl.
