Busy Old Day

Monday 21st September

I am again in England for a few days, work and seeing relatives.  Today I was up early and out by nine.  Tube to Kings Cross then train to Stevenage.  It was my grandson Sam’s sixth birthday on Thursday and I wanted to see him and his four year old sister Sophie.  A lovely time; I helped him, or rather he helped me, make a helicopter with the Lego set I got him.  Then we played a couple of games of Opposites, a nice twist on pairs.  Although I am living mostly in France I am actually seeing my grandchildren at least as often as I did when we lived a few miles away in London.

Home by four and our friends came round, a bit of gardening and tidying up the house, then my wife’s stepson and family came over and we went out for a curry.  All good fun, and now the day is nearly over, as tired and weary, I eke out a blog.  Not much of one I must admit but it has been a busy old day.
