More Conversations With Lauren



Most years we go on holiday to Rhodes with my daughter and her family. Earlier this year my husband had to have an operation and so we couldn't go with them to Rhodes. I was trying to explain it to Lauren as she had looked forward to the holiday for months. She especially loves our swims together in the pool above.  Here's what happened:

Lauren: Nanna, why can’t you come on holiday with us?

Me: Because granddad is poorly and he can’t come.

Lauren: Well why are you keeping him then?


Mmm...... Good question Lauren!

  6. I was reading your "introduction" on the right side of your blog and you said that you're on your next stage of life (something like that, because I can't get my link to go backwards)and that you hoped it wasn't your last stage.....I just turned 61 and I've been thinking that EVERY stage of my life was going to be my last.....now I'm "at the age" where.....well....arghhhh

  9. "Why are you keeping him!" WOW...they are so innocent and she's already associated that if something doesn't work you get rid of it! LOL

    How did your husband take the news? LOL

  10. Oh no. Poor grandad. I am sure you want to keep him even if Lauren doesn;t think so. Children come up with the wildest suggestions!

  11. That's why I love kids. They are so straight-forward and practical in their outlooks.

I'd love to hear from you:

It's growing!

Well it's not going too badly. The rib was a double one & I decided to cast on using double wool to strengthen the edge. Eric'...
