Smile for the camera

There is no doubt that one way to be popular...
... is to smile a lot, be agreeable and say nothing.
Maybe we all ought to remember this more often. (I include myself.)
Mr Life was up in Perth yesterday helping Son to assemble his Ikea furniture. Today he was a bit stiff. I enquired what was wrong. "Flat pack syndrome," he said, massaging his right shoulder. Poor old chap.

Sadly "flat pack syndrome" finds every little muscle that hasn't been exercised for a while!

Gorgeous,gorgeous little grandson. He brightens this world. Keep the photos coming!

Those Ikea flat packs are not light!
How can you ever have a bad day Isabelle with that little ray of sunshine within daily visiting reach?

I am glaring at an Ikea flat pack box as I speak. I am familiar with Mr Life's syndrome. I may glare at the box a few more days before doing something about it. I can always put a cloth over the top and stick a vase of daffodils on it. Can't I??

Grandson, I have to say is the most BEAUTIFUL wee boy! That grin is an absolute winner. I have now stopped glaring and am grinning just like a long distance granny.

"be agreeable and say nothing" - due to my disablility, this is me, much of the time. A greater contast to my previous life could not be imagined, but, I have to say, it does make life much simpler.

My husband says he knows that syndrome well. Seeing your grandson always makes me smile, he has to be the happiest baby i've ever seen.
