Nan had a great time. When we got home she actually told Mum she enjoyed the day VERY much and THANKED her for taking her. My Nan, lovely and all as she is, NEVER thanks Mum for anything. She is a bit naughty and does take Mum a little bit for granted but hey ..... She's IS 96 and her manners aren't as good as they used to be, aye?? She didn't look tired ..... not even once during the afternoon and Mum kept asking her if she wanted to go and lie down and she kept saying no so she sat for 3 hours watching the kids ..... that's unheard of for her these days. It was VERY noisy too. Little Georgia was so attentive to her. It was VERY touching to see. She sat with Nan for such a long time and every time someone handed her a present she would take it over to Nan for help in the unwrapping. The night before, Mum had found an old photo of Nan, taken when she was about two. OMD .... we always wondered who Georgia looked like. Well I think we know now.
Does this remind of you of anyone????
|Crikey ..... it's not JUST the dimple!! Now we know where it came from, aye?|
I think they look alike what do you think?? Nan is convinced they are twins, born 94 years apart. She can't see too much but she did study that photo of herself for hours. She has a big magnifying glass that the blind society gave her and she sure gave it a workout looking at that photo. Anyway it was so nice to see Georgia spending so much time with her. It really made Nan's day!! It was good to see her so bright and happy. Mum's given her a day off today. She's told her she can stay in bed ALL day and she can even have her meals in bed. She doesn't eat much these days except for breakfast but she sure likes a good brekky. First up this morning she had an orange and then Mum cooked her scrambled eggs on toast. Two eggs and one slice of toast. After that she had a cup of tea and another slice of toast with marmalade jam. WHAT! No vegemite .... CRIKEY! What sort of a brekky is that??
|Oh no ...it's round the wrong way!|
Anyway it was a GOOD day yesterday. I didn't get the chooks but I did get to play in the BIG paddock all day and once the visitors left Murhpy and I got to clean up the house yard. Crikey that popcorn is good stuff, aye??
|Crikey I love these people. Even the photo bomber!! He photo bombs all our birthday pictures.|
|Guess who got beads and a hat for her birthday??|
|Having a bash at the pinata.|
|Crikey that cake was good!!|
Wanna run .... love, Charlie!!
