I cannot believe it is WOYWW ...already. I am actually ashamed to show you my area this week, which is saying something about the mess, as normally I'm quite proud of my chaos in a funny way. The problem was that i didn't tidy it before I went away and I have just added to it all ... including a little order I made at a Stampin Up Party the other week, which arrived yesterday and is now balanced on the top of it all ... Earthtones card and pads and a large grey pad which I thought might come in useful for vintage. I will wait 'til the end before I decide whether or not to inflict a possible heart attack on those of a tidy nature.
I went over to see my gorgeous GS's on Friday. The journey seems long, only due to the fact that it takes a bus and two trains but it was a glorious day. I have lived up here for nearly five years and I still get a thrill as the train crosses the Firth of Forth and the sun glints on the rippling water below. The fields that passed by were like a huge quilt, worked in patches of golden yellow and green and the sky was a vibrant blue blanket, punctuated by teased balls of cotton wool, just motionlessly suspended there. As I stared at the view before me I was reminded of some thing I had heard about the painter Lowry. It was the fact that he used an infinite number of whites when painting skies and I began to understand why.
Finally I arrived and I could not believe how much they had grown ... more in development than in size ...iyswim. I could wax lyrical for inches and inches of post space but I will just show you some photos of the weekend ... 'A picture paints a thousand words ...
Oh how I love being a Nana ... all that playing and none of the problems. They are still such good little souls but love to wrestle each other.The tears that sometimes result can be banished so easily with a game of 'Peek a Boo'.
They approach every new food with a healthy curiosity and this weekend we found that they were not impressed by fresh strawberries or raspberries but loved their mums goulash ... even though it was a little spicy.Although Emma and Steve have tried so hard not to let them watch TV, they have given in and during afternoon Snack Time they have a little viewing time ... three notes of the Night Garden music and they are motionless and inthralled in the antics before them. I am glad to see that they love their stories and they love looking at books ... and it is planned that this never changes.
I think there are signs that they are going to be a real handful as they are already defeating their parents attempts to child proof the front room ....thank goodness for playpens ...they give you time to repair and recover. What will happen when they are actually walking ?????
OK ....Back to WOYWW
Just a peak of what I bought and thats balancing on the top of everything
OK ....I give in ....here it is in all its glory!!!!!
I know I have over loaded you with Ben and Jake photos but I had to sneak this one in ...we all went Ahhhhh when they did this .
Thanks for putting up with me being a typical doting Nana ...I prommise I will tidy my area and do something scrappy ASAP.
Take Care xx
