                  Good morning lovely people I do hope you are well.  Well the last day of May went out with a beautiful day and evening we had sunshine all of the day it was a special day me thinks. This morning the 1st of June and it is over cast but I'm not going to be negative we are going to get some sunshine today I just know we are I can feel it in me bones as my old grandma used to say.
    I haven't a lot planned for today just going to see what comes of the day, I do have to nip to the next village to get some vegetables our little shop in the village don't do veg's they say that not enough people buy them then they go off which is sense really but Id love to be able just to nip out of my door to the shop which is only 1minute away, that is if the railway don't see me and open the gates for the train , I'm sure that they have an alarm from my house door to the signal box that says" here she comes quick open the gates", because in the summer when I just need to nip quick to the shop for something which should take me all of 3 minutes ends up taking at least 10.Never mind if the boys are with me they love it seeing the train up close as it crosses the road they are impressive monsters just a little noisy sometimes. Billy eldest grandson will be 8yrs old  this month he is growing up so fast it really doesn't seem 5 Min's since we where waiting for his entrance into the world .He did surprise us by arriving 5 weeks early and having a few problems but he got over them and is a bright healthy happy nearly 8 yr old today. When he was small he had a mass of lovely blond curls but as he has got older his hair has got stronger and the curls have got a bit out of hand and don't curl like they used too. Billy has had his hair quite short for sometime now but has decided he wants it long and curly which is taking sometime to get where he wants it bless him, I think he sees himself as a little surfer dude which would be good as he has had a go at surfing when they where on holiday in Cornwall a couple of yrs ago and mummy said he was good at it. Here are a very small few of my favourite photos of Billy as he has got older I do have hundreds of photos of the boys and I'm sure I will be taking thousands more of them, well that's what grandmas do don't they?

 As you can see he is a happy fun little guy who is going to grow up handsome and break a few hearts with those eyes, but I would say that wouldn't I ?
    Well! that took me right off track of what I was saying and now Iv forgot like ya do! I think we have a bit of blue sky peeping out so that sunshine is going to come out and play. Its just 9am now so I'm going to get me bum off of me seat and leave you all in peace and go get me veg's. Have a lovely day and let me know what you are going to be doing this weekend.
Have fun love Jill xx


  1. Hi Jill, yes he's a handsome lad alright!

  2. Hi Jill, you must be such a proud grandma. They look so cute. Wonderful pictures. I can only hope that this will be something I will experience in the future. I do hope so ; )
    Have a great weekend.

  3. I am sure you will have sunshine by the time I am writing this Jilly - it is lovely here and we are not far away as the crow flies.

  4. Well proud Gran, I think he has a great smile too! :)

    Brill kitchen, Jill!

  5. I spy my green man. lol
    I have the same one on my shed outside...
    Lovely little grandchildren, mine are all growing up now, the eldest is 24, of course, I'm still only 35. LOL

  6. It's a lovely day here, too, and I've already taken Tegan for her morning walk. Now I have one of my students mowing the lawns because Lorne has to stay off his feet as much as possible. He hates it that he's so tired and his feet hurt. But Monday morning we see the oncologist to determine the plan for him since this infection won't heal with him continuing with chemo. the meantime, I'm enjoying the weather at the same time as my back has gone wonky again!
