Hello Blog friends that`s me back.
Thank you for popping by, I love that you keep coming back to see what I have been up to.
No card today, Thomas and I are still working on a "Thank You" card for Oriel. Not hat he needs to thank her he never got there!!!! Thomas has been Air Travelling since he was 9 months old, they both have. They have been to the States twice a year till they went to school, plus other trips including Turkey to visit us, and holidays with us. Now they normally go to the States in October however they were there for 3 weeks of their Summer Break from school. We as a family do a lot of travelling together all 6 of us. This would have been the first time other than days away in the car or on the train, again it is usually Thomas, Robert with either me, John or both of us. Poor Thomas took a panic attack on Monday evening here in our house. He was worried about going away without either his mum or dad. We tried to reassure him, but he would not be convinced that his mum and dad would be nearer in Belfast that they will be when they go down to London in November. He went home to sleep on it. However I think John and Audrey might have been pressurising him just a bit too much. He came on the phone Tuesday morning crying his wee heart out saying he could not manage to come. Last thing he said to me on the phone was "Granny you WILL still love me" well you can imagine that was me in tears, not that he was not coming, but the thought that I had upset him so much. We tend to forget that he has just turned 9, is very tall and very clever, we do expect a lot from him.
He did come to the Airport with John to pick me up, Oh! Wow! you would have thought I had been away for 3 months rather than 3 days. He came home with us for tea, set the table, helped make the tea, cleared the table, stacked the dishwasher. He asked if we were Best Buddies again, told him we had not been anything else but. He went off home happy as Larry, had to get back again today. I am sure it was just to check that we really were.
Just thought I would let you see the wonderful view from my bedroom window at Oriel`s. Some of their 280 Dairy cows wondering about in the field. In the distance on the horizon is a Ferry Boat beyond that is the west cost of Scotland at Port Patrick.
I had a great 3 days with great weather and walks a long the beautiful beach at Ballywalter.
We did do a little shopping on Wednesday had lunch out, other than that it was just a great catch up.
I have had to leave the card for today. Thomas will be back tomorrow to finish off adding flowers. For me there are enough on already. You know what kids are like when the see a box of anything they need to add most of it to what they are creating.
That`s it for today
Thank you for your visit I really appreciate it
Till Next time
