happy to say was amazing!!
make you laugh as when they arrived OH OPENED lemonade for Rodney and it erupted all over him and me grrrrr other funny thing was Hetti Anina Mum who was lovely by the way unscrewed pepper dispenser instead of twisting it oh dear went all over her meal, luckily easy to scrape pepper corns off!!

I was so pleased we seemed to bond more with the boys this time, they both wanted to come in our car when we went out after lunch!

They tucked in and ate all food was great.

only sad bit was my DS Mentioned his sister to Rodney about how fussy she was at eating and I could feel the tears coming, deep breaths and went into kitchen Rodney followed me! still I coped and it was lovely lovely day!

thanks ladies for support!! hope i did enough food, it all went! boys are 11 and 13 and they do eat well!! was lovely to see them enjoy it, and felt we getting to know them better now. heres to next visit!!

Are you joking tanglerose.saying that you ar moaning, you mention a terminally ill garndchild, does it get any worse than that!!!!!

You have every right in the world to be moaning sweet, every right in the world!!

Amids it all try and find something that puts a smile on your face, bit it a favourite place or a favourite cake, we all have bad times-- the good news is that they dont last forever..

Your retirement has been spoiled by your family problems and probably the fact of having lots of time on your hands has given you time to think about the problems--but you could make the decision that you are going to spend your time doing nice things.

You are so lucky being retired, having the day to yourself to do as you please..the best bit for me would be NOT having to get up early!!

Best wishes x x
