Hello. I will skip the fact that Mother has another abcess on her gum, Marge's computer was struck by lightning and died a miserable death, and that summer is almost over. I know. I saw autumnal leaves today. And I will dwell instead on the fact that granddaughters are SO much fun.
Missy is hilarious.From the early morning bellow "HELLO down air.....Missy coming down a stairs" (We were sleeping downstairs) to the "Night night, Norganny, see you in a morning", she was a delight. Sure, there were a few tantrums, the girlie is 2, after all, but there were far more giggles and smiles. I cannot begin to tell you how much fun she had trying to knit. That means Norganny was knitting, so Missy ran to get to flags from her golf set (plastic sticks) and announced that she was going to knit too. So she dug the sticks into the middle of my ball of wool and yanked thwool out and tried to get it to stay on the sticks This went on until Norganny reached the end of her row and downed tools. Then spent hours untangling the ball of wool. If I tried to sneak a row in, the child's radar kicked in and back she raced to find her sticks "Missy knit too, Norganny!!!"
So the knitting did not get very far. At all. But the fun just grew. She did my hair with the same knitting sticks. There were lego towers and trains, dolly pram races. Picnics.Tea parties. The golf set was a great hit, Crystal, and she got the two handed idea rapidly. It is amazing how quickly little ones learn, isn't it......
I have loved playing with her.
I am using David's old laptop.The one with the letterless keys, which stick. The one which skips letters. The one where the return key fails to return. It is doing my head in, people. I cannot tell you how long I have been sitting here trying to write something coherent. I have spent three times as long trying to fill the gaps and make sense of what I have written. So that will do for today.
I will be back.
PS: I am, however, very thankful I have a live computer to bash away on. Defects and all!
