NO CHILLING HERE

Not a very peaceful nights sleep and I now have the cough that my two little visitors arrived with! I know it’s good to share but really, do they have to pass everything on to me! The day began with breakfast, which was about 9.30 so that was good as I do find early mornings very unsociably, I feel that 10 o’clock should be the new 8 o’clock. I really cannot understand why that is not the rule everywhere, I’m sure we would all function and work so much better.

We then spent a while deciding what to do first as their list of things to-do was a bit too long for my liking, I think I will need the week to recover. So, we settled on the cake making and they followed instructions and did it all themselves. They were delicious and did not last very long at all, at least they will not want much for lunch lol.

No mess in the kitchen, very tidy cooks!

After a sit down and some tv, not that I really heard any of it, as they seem to chat non stop to one another. Much the same as I do to each of their Mums, so I guess I can not really complain.
It was decided they wanted to learn how to knit, after casting on the 20 stitches they each had a turn at doing a row, which they did complete very well as we only ended up with 23 stitches and 2 little holes. For a first effort I thought they did very well, I was amazed at the amount of patience you seem to developer as a grandmother as I am sure I would not of sat there doing that with my two girls when they were young. I would of sent them to their Nan’s!

I am now very happy to sit and read but they had other ideas, they now think that crocheting will be easier than knitting so we should have a turn at that. It took me a while to remember how to wrap the wool round your finger and hold the hook but as they say its like riding a bike it all comes back to you. There was only one problem with this as I had never mastered doing anything more than a chain. Again, they did very well and can now both do a chain. I will leave the rest up to the parents.

Almost time for dinner and then it will be snuggling on the sofa and a lovely film, which I will try to stay awake for. All in all a very good day was had by all.

Wonder what we will get up to tomorrow? Check back and see folks, have a lovely evening. X

  1. Sounds like you had a great day. I think you’re right about grandparents having more patience than parents. Now I feel quite guilty for not doing all those activities with my daughters when they were younger. I suppose work and housework got in the way. As a grandparent I imagine you can set aside time for the grandkids in a way that you can’t as a parent.
