Grandy

Grandmas don't just say "that's nice" -- they reel back and roll their eyes and throw up their hands and smile. You get your money's worth out of grandmas. -Author:unknown


These last couple of days l've been busy babysitting my wee granddaughter Olwyn (2) – she certainly keeps me going with her blether and l am now officially known as 'Grandy'.

Today we had fun making soup – while l was busy making bread/soup up on the counter Olwyn filled her own giant jam pot on the floor. She loved opening all the kitchen cupboards, drawers and rummaging through the vegetable basket. She filled her big pot with plastic cookie cutters, parsnips, carrots, etc. and stirred it all with a extra long wooden spoon – quite a sight. She was so proud to take some soup home to her mummy- thinking she had made it herself!

I've also been busy sewing and hanging new curtains (3 meter drop x 4), knitting my daughter a strawberry tea cosy and have been across the water for shopping.

All the family are busy but doing well- so now l'm away to bed. Grandy is beat.

Wish you could email me some of that soup! lol Your granddaughter is so adorable and how fun that you had her helping you make soup:-) When I went to see my own granddaughter a week before Christmas, one of my gifts to her was a little plastic cooking set and she was so busy making me eggs and cookies, she had no interest in opening her other gifts! lol

So you're now Grandy and I'm Nana...don't we just love our new names!! hehe xoxo
