Three of my grandsons live in London, this was their Christmas gift to me - a wonderful portrait of the three of them with my husband and myself, not forgetting Toby the dog. Each and every item shown was chosen with care - my husband does a lot of gardening and it is alleged that I do a lot of dog walking and have occasional mad bursts of sewing and creating. How well they know me!
The three boys have their favourite toys and activities scattered around them. The boys are all recognisable, especially the dark haired one. The picture is a delight, I will treasure it always, boys.
I hardly dare say it but the internet seems to be working well now.
It only took two visits and a new hub sent through the post. I confess that I got pretty stressed by the two home visits, especially as one of the men needed to use the facilities. In normal times this wouldn't be a problem but these are still not normal times. I did an awful lot of cleaning and beaching afterwards.
Not having the usual easy access to the internet meant that I had to amuse myself in different ways. Books, books, books, being my first choice, so all was not lost. When I tired of books I got to work on a silk patchwork cover which has been three or four years in the making so far. In between times, weather permitting, I walked Toby through sodden fields.
I hope you are all keeping well and happy during these unusual times.
My husband had his vaccination yesterday. A sore arm is all he has to report today.
