Yesterday we went to visit Blokey’s Grandad. He is a very elderly chap, who had a stroke a few years back so whenever we go round he’s always in his chair. The boys can’t remember him pre-stroke so they struggle a bit. I remember him being a bit chattier so I understand his speech.
Although the kids like the great grandparents they do act like caged animals when we leave their house. Too much sitting still and behaving! So afterwards we went for a muck about at the park.
It was a hot sunny day, so ice cream and a walk about the pond. This soon turned into chucking sticks into the water, then pebbles. A bit of tree climbing. Fishing out clumps of fish eggs or frog spawn using long twigs, but carefully so we didn’t kill anything, and we put it back in the same place we found it.
Afterwards it was a bit late, we had run out of rocks pebbles and twigs to throw in, we went to a local chippy and got bad (but yummy) dinner and sat at the train station to eat it. My boys and Blokey all love trains so they like stations. I watched the sun fade whilst they chatted away about Voyagers, Pendillinos and freight trains.
