Well, what a few weeks it's been. There's been lots of sadness when a young man died far too soon leaving a young family of four without their father and we have also had worry and concerns when a family member needed major surgery at Stoke hospital but it was cancelled as they had no bed. Thankfully he was able to go in this Tuesday, had his surgery Wednesday and after spending a night wired up to many machines and monitors was out of bed, showered and dressed yesterday [he may even be home by the time you're reading this!]. I do think life likes to challenge.
So this week for us has been spent playing juggle the grandchildren. We had little Theo on Tuesday afternoon while his mummy worked and fetched Amy's three from school each night, gave them their tea and then took them home to put them to bed each night.....It's been really lovely of course but the last time we had three children at this age we were 30 years younger!! Shall I just say we have slept well?
So my photos for this week are....
Little Theo went last Friday with his daddy to Cosford to see the planes and I don't think he could quite believe just how big they were....and of course they called in after to tell me all about it. :-) :-)
Special times spent with his Grandad on Tuesday afternoon and what makes this photo even more special is the little stool was made by Theo's Great Grandad and it's so lovely to see it's still being used by the next generation....Theo's grandad used to sit on it when he was a little boy :-) :-)
Having had 4 of our Grandchildren at ours on Tuesday afternoon meant lots of happy moments of course but this one really made me smile....Lulu is such a little 'mum' with her little cousin and after their tea she found a book and read him a story....he's really snuggling up to her while she's reading.....happy happy memories.
That's all from me for this week. Please leave me a little comment and then, if possible, please link up to your own smiles below.
