|Even the egg tries a hat on!|
|Waiting for your return|
Do you wonder what we do when you go home? Of course we are sad to see you go or sad not to see you because you are so far away BUT there are a few things which cheer us up. First we meditate madly to remind ourselves that we aren’t just sad old grandparents. Then we might go to the cinema to fit the other quieter evenings but apart from that we have a few other jolly ways of sort of reminding ourselves that you were here even though you are now there. we pick up all the leftover bits, the hats and odd socks and put the hats in places where they can remind us of YOU or you or you or even those who haven’t been here for a while. And of course we talk about you and how well you are and how brilliant of course! We do a sort of round of the family, a little worry here, a little smile here, a getting out of the diaries and deciding what we will do until you come again. The one allowable bit of bliss for a pair of grandparents whose children and grandchildren have gone home is to find the odd socks and get them in pairs. There are still a few odd ones hanging around but if nobody claims them, they will be tossed into the rubbish!
