On Wednesday she became Joint winner of the Philip Abrams Memorial prize for best first sole authored book in sociology.
(See previous post.) That was in Manchester, she returned to Edinburgh on Thursday. All done with the newest grandchild.....Train journeys, the presentation, et al. Amazing.
Friday she drove up from Edinburgh with her three children. Our first meeting of C who was born in January.
Here they all are having their tea. The DP cooked 3 different teas. Steak for me, fishfingers for 2 older boys, puff pastry vegetarian pizza for himself and eldest daughter. He had nothing to do with C who has breast milk.
Last night I became Super Gran the Baby whisperer.
One asleep baby.
So the beach and play area have been done today, without me. Lunch at the Dunes with me and Willows www.willowsanimals.com without me.
I have to be honest - I get tired. I am old. I need my walk and commune with the sea. So this afternoon while they looked at rescued animals I did my .59 in glorious weather.
Did some painting.
So later I could offer respite to Supermum and be Supergran the Baby Whisperer.
