Another penguin and another part of the message. Thank you again, Daughter 2.
It's amazing to think that the last time we decorated the Christmas tree, Mr Life and I didn't even suspect the existence of Grandson. And here he is, looking up at the coloured baubles.
He came to visit today while Daughter 1 went Christmas shopping. We had him for about four hours - by far the longest that she's ever been parted from him. We took great care of him. He met this Santa, which I bought when Daughter 1 was only a few months older than he is now.
He liked Santa.
Of course we had to put Santa's hat on him.
Son tapped on our bedroom window at about 8.30 this morning, having driven down after taking his young lady to work. (He couldn't get into the house because there was a chain on the door.) So that was a nice surprise. Here he is, feeding Grandson with milk that Daughter 1 had expressed for her baby. The pair of them just sat there, relaxed, having a nice time together. I found it very sweet. If odd.
It's 44 years today since Mr Life and I first went out together. Who knew that it would lead to the above...?
Life is sometimes a bit astonishing.
