Been struggling to put up pictures (without much success, as you'll have gathered), but finally managed to put up above photo of one of two hibiscus trees in the garden. Just been reading a comment from someone who calls himself 'How do we know', and is I think a house guest of Zoe's. He's got ideas about raising children, which I rather like - the ideas that is - haven't met the children, as yet, so I don't know whether I like them or not (although I usually do). Got five meself, plus eleven grandchildren, plus two great grand children, none of which has put me off liking children- rather the reverse, I think. The trick is - to listen to them, although they quite like being told stories.
Having read this, I find I'm waffling; and as there's a T.V. programme about to start, which we want to watch, Will close now, and wish you all a very good night.
P.s. Made a muck of that. The top picture is of greatgranddaughter Astrid, who is Amelia's daughter, Sarah's granddaughter , and our (as stated ) great granddaughter. A few days before they came to see us, Astrid had fallen onto a concrete path in her garden, and knocked a front tooth out. To make sure that we appreciated the full horror of the situation she had bought along a photograph of herself, taken shortly after the tragic incident occurred, and lost no time in showing us it. As she is three and a half now I fear that this will mean she is likely to be 'gappy' for the next three years or so. She is a sociable little soul and spent most of the day with Ann in the garden (where she carefully picked herbs to augment the lunch she helped Ann to make) found a new name for her great grandmother (Granny Annie) and then, perched on a stool that was just the right height for her , helped Grannie Annie in the kitchen. When she left I presented her with the stool so she could help her Mummy in the kitchen. She is really great fun, bless her.
