My grandson is now a teenager, yes I know, how did those years pass so quickly? He is a fine handsome young man. He shares his birthday month with his father and two cousins. The cousins live in St Helens, so we visited family during half term week. We had a lovely time shopping, the younger ones went trampolining, and we managed to get 12 of us out for a lunch, which was very nice.
The past few weeks have been quite busy. I usually start Autumn with a flurry of activity, tidying the allotment, "putting the garden to bed", putting the garden furniture away - mind you soon after putting the chairs away I took one out again because it was such a lovely mild day I had lunch in the garden!
I've been doing some work on my dollshouse; reading; and practising with some painting - art painting, not decorating painting :-)
Rufus has been hopping around on three legs again. We couldn't determine if it was his hip, leg, ankle or paw, he didn't yelp when examined. He's almost back to normal now.
A couple of weeks ago I visited Bletchley Park, more of that later.
I have also been trying to catch up with reading my favourite blogs. I often get carried away, I start reading then follow a link and before I know it a couple of hours have passed and I've only read a few. How do you follow yours? Do you set aside a certain amount of time per day, do you read the latest post from all of them or do you dip in and out?
