My grand daughter will be 20 this summer... where did those years go?
I was there holding her mum's hand when she was in labour!
I bought this violin and loved to hear her practice.
She moved on to a bass guitar when she was 18!
We went to the pub one evening when I popped to see them all.
And she played in the garden there.
She modelled her schools uniform and this photo is still on their site.
In fact that year her photo was used for their open day posters and she fronted the web site's first page.
And I love this one of her, which I snagged from her FB page..
When I said I looked at her FB page, she said, ' Grandma are you checking up on me?'
'Not at all,' I said with my fingers crossed behind my back!
I remember one time when she arrived home from school earlier than her Mum expected and no one was home. It was winter and getting dark. Mum didn't answer her phone and so she phoned Grandma.
I phoned back and kept talking to her as she squatted down in the porch waiting for her Mum for half an hour or so.
Lots of happy memories but I have this regret... I never pushed her in her pram.
Silly or what...but I bought that pram, ME!! And it cost a lot.. so when I am feeling old and crotchety I think to myself..
I never pushed her in that pram!!
