How Precious they are...
Back from the coast babysitting and it was wonderful to be able to say that I have been able to see both sets of grandchildren 2 weekends in a row. One lot came to me and I went to the others.
It is pure bliss to get those cuddles and squeezes,and you realise that there will be a time not too far away when these are not so readily available( I have to say though Alex at 12 still loves to hug us).
I was thinking at the weekend that when old age comes along the cuddles become less,more often than not your partner is gone,the children live afar and a hug is a rare thing.With Mum living with us I realise I do not hug her enough, when we used to visit her ,she lived 4 hours away I would be out of the car like a flash and huge hugs all round,now Mum is here all the time it is not so often,I have told myself I must fix this as I will be undernourished when the children go off on their life journey and hugs become rare.
Last weekend I did not get a chance to take pics of the gorgeous Gunns,this weekend Mummy took a pic of the children with Nanny and as you can see Elijah is a grumble bum he had just woken,Eden,and Lilli oops Lilly she changed the way she spells her name as it is really Lillian and has always been Lilli but she informed me we have changed lol aren't they a scream.
Have a lovely week ,all the wrapping is done to a degree of the prizes more come in all week,the showbags are done and now just the decorating I am sure this will be the last place I get to sit for another week,I will have pics for you.
Have a blessed week and remember to give someone that little hug.
