Little Rascal comes to stay

After a hectic and stressful few weeks, I finally find myself with the time and the inclination to return to my blog - and to have a look at other peoples blogs, sorry for neglecting the few people who read this blog and who are kind enough to leave comments. 
Little Rascal came to stay with us whilst Mum spent some time in hospital, and what a busy but lovely time we had. Now I often get accused of spoiling Little Rascal (who me!), but I had permission to do so now to help cope with Mums absence, hence pancakes for breakfast. Oh, I forgot to mention, Little Rascals dog came to stay also.
Little Rascal enjoys the walk to school, even when the weather is inclement, but she does have the shelter of her nice green umbrella
We cut through the churchyard with a bag of monkey nuts to give the squirrels their breakfast, to Little Rascal's disappointment, the squirrels must still be in bed.
We played many games, this game was good fun. We both had a card on our head, we had to ask each other questions and try and guess what is depicted on ones own card. After an hour playing this game it can get a bit tedious!
 The Hide & Seek went well, who would have thought of looking in the basket?
Whilst I was busy in the kitchen, Little Rascal was happily watching television. She shouted through that she was watching a good dancing film. After a while I popped my head round the door to check she was OK. She said "Grampy, you had better not watch this, there is a lady with not many clothes on". She was only watching "Dirty Dancing", the 1987 film starring Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey.
Little Rascal took a lovely bunch of flowers up to the hospital to give to Mummy.
....and mother and daughter were so very pleased to see each other.
The flowers looked nice in the vase.
It was good fun using the control that moves the bed into many different positions.
 This delightful little girl celebrated her eighth birthday two days after Christmas, she seems to be growing up so fast. It is a real privilege to be involved in her upbringing, and what a good little friend she is to have.

Welcome back. What fun to play with your granddaughter! It can be hectic but so wonderful to have charge of the grandbabies for a bit. Enjoy every minute because time steals them from us.

"When Time who steals our years away
Shall steal our pleasures too,
The mem'ry of the past will stay,
And half our joys renew."

Who wrote that?

It is the first lines from a poem by Thomas Moore, "When Time Who Steals our Years Away"

You're a poetry expert, right?

Finally getting around to commenting on blogs, I lost the blogging mojo for a while! Little R looks like a going concern, have just realised that she is only 2 months older than Callum, he will be 8 in Feb. Hope that the hospital stuff is all cleared up now and Mummy is at home. That card game looks like fun, my small people would love it I think. And riding up and down on a hospital bed is always fun, as long as you're not the patient!
