Well our visitors are heading back to London.  They have to return their hired car to the centre of London by 4pm tomorrow, then out to Gatwick to get their flight home.  They didn't want to go we had to practically push them out the door, telling them its a long journey and you will need to stop for breaks.  Also find somewhere to stop over night.  I think they look at the map and say "that's not far".  Anyway they are already planing next years return trip.   It's Charlie's nephew and his girl friend who have been staying, both under 30 so it's been having young ones younger than our own staying, but a lovely couple who have fitted in with us all - makes it so much easier.

I have just to show you Andrew  THE MINI AC/DC FAN that i showed in a scrapbook page. having his first drumming lesson, he is not 5 yet but if he has two pencils or sticks he has to drum.   Mummy decided it was something that had to be pursued, and found a  chap willing to take him on even if they don't usually take them until they are 7.   After today he says that he will be a treat to teach. 

I think his face tells all!!!

He had an hour of being in his element.  It's not going to cheap but like everything we will help out. That's what grand parents are for I think, and as for me I think we can't take our money with us so at least we see wee man getting his lessons.   We have four grand children but they all get treated the same. 

Well that's it for now, I am babysitting Anna and Beth tonight, mummy and daddy don't go out that often so I dont mind, but I do mind that granny was to come up and do it but called off at the last moment.

  1. Good Afternoon Hazel. I bet you'll be tired by now and in need of a rest. Andrew looks brilliant sitting at the drum kit. Its lovely to be able to help out when needed. Most of ours are making their own life now ,but I still have a 13year old and a 10 year old that are getting the benefits the others had too. Have a Good weekend. Hugs Rita xx

  2. Hello Hazel, a great photo of Andrew, I love drumming and at concerts I'm always right beside the percussion instruments, just got to remember not to jump with a start whem the big timpami booms. Who knows what Andrew might become I the future.

    A well earned rest nownyour guests have gone, Kate x

  4. Hi Hazel. Now you can take a deep breath and chill out.
    Wouldn't want to be living next door to your Andrew when he gets his own drum kit LOL! x


    1. Ang his granny wouldn't want to live next door to him either, he will contain you to go to the studio to practise for a long time.
