Oldest Grandson J. was 5 last week and my oldest Granddaughter F. is 5 in October. They don't get to meet up often as Grandson is down in Surrey.
On Sunday Eldest Daughter and Grandson came up to stay for a few days. Youngest daughter came over on Tuesday with Granddaughter so there was lots of giggling and being as silly as two 5 year olds can be. I zoomed out first thing for a hosepipe and a cheap paddling pool as the forecast was hot and it didn't take long for them to be dashing in and out.
But later they settled down for some drawing and colouring in the shade.
The lovely thing about living in this village is we could all walk to the playground for some climbing and sliding and get an icecream from the shop on our way home.
And thank goodness for my new dishwasher so I didn't have to spend time washing up after cooking us all lunch - I never ever thought I would have a dishwasher - but have soon seen the benefits!
