One Year On..

Back to Monday, and the lovely Plumber appeared as promised to finish off my new shower. He did a grand job, and it works a treat. He also charged a reasonable amount of money for the work he did - which is not always the case round these parts. I've already recommended him to other friends, and hope he will prosper ...

Yesterday (Tuesday) I drove to see Daughter, taking Hon Grandaughter, her mother Katie, and another Gay Friend from the Beach Cafe. We had planned a barbecue, and luckily it was a really lovely day. Grandson and I lit the BBQ while the others went for more supplies (wine and other alcohol for the non-drivers). Hon Grandaughter loved the new kitten and we checked on the tadpoles, which seem to have back legs, but are no further forward. After a fun day and lots to eat, Daughter and I decided that Grandson could come back with me as she was going to work the next day. I figured he would have more fun at the paddling pool than in Nursery from 8am to 6pm! So we tootled back altogether in the car (though Hon Grandaughter was suffering from car sickness most of the journey). As soon as we were home, I tucked a very sleepy Grandson up in bed. And it wasn't long before I followed suit.

Today it is a whole year since I started writing my Blog. Happy Anniversary to me! It seems longer in some ways, and when I read back over some of the posts, I've obviously gone through some spectacular highs and lows during the year. I have loved every minute of it too. I feel that I have made real friends - some who make me laugh and some who make me cry. And that is not at all what I expected. I have certainly poured my heart out on a regular basis, and have had the most wonderful love and support from everyone who comments on what I write. Thank you all.
