A day in the life of a grandma

P1060016On our return to the Tilster yesterday, we were greeted with a generally sticky baby. Not through lack of washing, but rather through a gunky eye of conjunctivitis and a snotty nose of post-jab feverishness.

Grandma had a lovely time with the Little One but it would be untrue to say that Tilly gave her an easy ride of it…

Will leave you with the notes that we discovered in Grandma’s kitchen between our departure at 4.30pm on Monday afternoon and our collecting Tilly on Thursday morning…

Sadly on our return to St A, she has been incredibly fevery and snotty and so all the good work done by 3 nights away are being rapidly undone by half-hourly summonses to the nursery for cuddles. It’s lovely to have her back for cuddles, but I think I could probably have resisted the temptation for snuggles until the sun rose…
