Z tackles a scramble net and treetops

I’ve been a full-time Granny today, which is something I enjoy more than anything else.  I looked after Gus so that Weeza could paint the kitchen of their new house.  I spent last night with them, to save me a journey through rush-hour Boringland (very nearly the actual name of a village I have to drive through), had Gus for the day and then fetched Zerlina from school and brought them back here.

Gus and I went to BeWILDerwood, which isn’t far from where they live and which the children know well and love.  Actually, Weeza works for the owner, though not at the place itself.  I’ve never been there before as it happens, but had a brilliant time.

If I have time tomorrow, I’ll post some pictures, but they take a while to upload and it’s late.  I loved the treetop walks and the staff were delightful.  Children loved the slides – I might have too, but Gus was too small for them and too young to leave while I had a go.

The children are sharing a bed tonight – we only have one single bed, so they opted for a double.  I’ve got quite a lot to do tomorrow, so it’ll be a bit of a challenge to keep them happy, but we’ll see what the weather is like.  I’ve even resorted to making a list – not of all I have to do, but of letters and documents that have to be prepared before I leave on Sunday.  This is not proving to be the best timing for a holiday, but I’ve passed over all I can and haven’t missed any deadlines yet.

    I think I’ve said it before, but it’ll bear repeating – you are really fortunate to have family living as near you as they do. I know you make the most of grandparenthood; and rightly so; it’s a lovely time.

    We’re having a lovely time, but devoting my time to them has meant it’s taken the whole evening to do everything I need to before leaving. I haven’t packed anything but my passport yet. Still, I’ve got time in the morning. I hope.

    If you take the “Wild” out of “BeWilderwood” it becomes “Beer Wood”.

    Have a lovely trip and store up some good blogging material for us.
