Tuesday 1st September was Thomas our older Grandsons 11th Birthday. We were along for a Birthday Tea and had great fun. Early tea, Robert was playing football at 7pm. We stayed on, I had a great chat with Audrey while Thomas and Grandpa entertained each other. Thomas got a "large" Lego kit as one of his gifts from Mum & Dad. He tipped all the bits out of the bags and started building, Grandpa sat with him, they chatted away together while Thomas built. Grandpa looked on in amazement as to how quickly thousands of "bits" were transformed!!!
The footballers returned, discussed the Saved goals and the one unfortunately missed. Robert is the Goal Keeper. More to eat and drink then it was time to head home.
I thought I would let you see the card Robert made for Thomas. Robert was rummaging in a box of images for something to use when he found "the perfect one" as far as he was concerned. Right Granny, the image is good but the background is boring!!! We need a sun, the sky and some grass. This is what he came up with. I did show him what to do, the rest was his work. Most of my regular followers know Robert is quite a good wee crafter. I just give the things he needs, help if he asks for it, and he is happy.
I forgot to photograph it at our house. I took this at J&As its rather pale but you get the idea.
The topper, from Flowersoft, was printed with the two boys but Robert filled in the white background.
The Birthday Boy:-
Thomas and Dad setting the Commemorative Watch Grandpa gave him. Thomas is very fond of the Steam Engine Flying Scotsman. The engine is going through a major refurbishment. They hope to have it back on the rails later this year. They are fund raising for all the work. One of the things on sale is a Limited Edition Pocket Watch which Grandpa just had to buy for him. Its something that he will keep, not a toy or to be worn just yet . Dad is 6`4" Thomas at 11 is only one foot shorter, we keep wondering what height Thomas will end up!!! John and I remember John Jnr was tall at 11 ... but!!! was he as tall as Thomas is now??
That`s it for today
Thank you for calling by, I really appreciate it
Till next time
