To Australia with love…

DSC_0040 DSC_0053 DSC_0028

On Monday our beautiful grandchildren emigrate to Australia and so we spent a last day with them today at the coast; Skegness. Having lived abroad a couple of times (India and Gibraltar) we know it’s a wonderful opportunity for the children although from a selfish point of view there’s no doubt we’ll miss them. If there is one consolation these days it has to be technology because it’s made this world much smaller and easier to stay in touch with loved ones wherever they are. I guess it’s one of those times when I’m excited (for them) and sad (for us) both at the same time. Wherever they are, they always have our love x x

    • Thank you Helen. We will so miss the kids; I guess as grandparents we feel we should be there for them at the ages they are, looking out for them. With your own kids you sort of know they will flee the nest at some point but for some reason I’ve never got my head round the grandkids not being there. It’s just such a strong bond – with all 11 of them – its a bit like being a shepherd.

      Today’s been a really lovely day and I know Carol will upload a lot of photos tomorrow but I guess they’ll both be on our minds Monday when they fly. X
