"My Granny"

Hello and welcome to my Blog.
Thank you so much for popping in to see what I have been up to.  I love that you do that and leave all your wonderful comments.  I read each and every one.  I do try to return the favour, if you don`t have a Blog I thank you for visiting.  Thank you all for your continued support, without you all this would not be any fun at all.
Today we were along at the school to see the "Project" children from primary 1 to 3 have been doing since they went back in the summer.  "School in my Granny`s day"  We had a great afternoon looking at all their wonderful work, the research they had done and how they had done it.  Lots of information was gathered together from Granny`s, Grandpas also Great Granny`s.  There were photographs of some of the Grandparents/Great Grandparents who had actually gone to that school.  There were picture of old cars, tractors, a selection of old toys and games. They even had an old "belt"  We used the "belt" in Scotland rather than the "cane"  The children had done loads of work, they made lovely biscuits for the cup of tea as well.
They all had to write about their Granny.
Here is Roberts bit about "ME"

It is very out of focus, it was high up, I would have had to stand on something to get a better picture.  I have written it out for you to read:- not that I am proud Granny or anything!!!!

My Granny 
My granny has blue eyes.  Sometimes she wears dresses.  She always wears necklaces that she has made.  I love making cakes with her and I love putting the topping on top of the cakes.  I get mail with her and help her look at it.  I often get the newspaper too.  Sometimes she gives me chocolate and lollipops.  She spoils me but I don`t mind.  She takes me to the park with Grandpa and Thomas to play cricket it is fun.  
Granny makes me feel happy

by Robert P3

Robert is a wee darling BUT we have our moments, he is very untidy........!!!  Drops things at his tail and walks off, does not get away with it in this house.   The one thing I don`t give them are lollipops......I have this awful fear about if they fall it would go down their throat.  His father never got them either so don`t know where he got that one from.

That`s it for today I will be back soon with a quick card I was asked to do today......needed for tomorrow!!!!  I had to get out the "magic wand" give it a bit of a polish.  I have a few cards to do for Hazel`s daughter, they are not needed till Wednesday, thank goodness.
Thank you for calling by today I really appreciate it
Till next time

    Isn't it fabulous how much he loves you to write such lovely things.
