Bye Boys.



This last week has flown by. Half term holidays are far too short; not on account of the boys, but because of their father who is needed back in the UK at his management helm.

The boys invented new games, invented new magic tricks, played gin rummy and snap, had yet another Christmas dinner, fed the horses with carrots, drove (and crashed) their go-cart at 200mph down the hill, got dirty, laughed a lot, ate new things, went to bed exhausted, and now they really don't want to leave.

Unfortunately I shall be driving them to the airport later this morning, then we won't see them again until summer. 

A bientôt guys.

  1. As fast as the time spent with the boys flew by, so will be the time you wait to see them again. These are wonderful memories you are making with and for your grandchildren.

  2. These are the days their minds will return to, over and over, as they grow older, and their lives will be the richer for it.

    1. I hope so, they are completely free when they're here. They go off by themselves on adventures; something they could never do back home.

  3. My nephews remember their time at the farm as children so fondly and still talk about it as young adults (they'll always be boys in my mind.) But it was I that had the most fun, watching them play and grow.

    1. I used to stay on an uncle's farm in Wales when I was small. I still remember it today.

  4. Yes, they will have wonderful memories. Our grandchildren talk of the times they had at "the farm" our property up north.

    1. This has become their second home; they really look forward to being reacquainted with all their things, bikes, games, etc.

  5. It will pass so quickly, Cro, and no doubt they are counting the days, too, until they are with you again. What a wealth of happy memories they will have to see them through the coming years.

    1. We have a lot to do between now and summer, so time will probably fly.

    1. It wasn't that lovely most of the time; it rained a lot.

  9. I treasure memories of time spent with my grandparents, and so will those boys for decades to come.

    How lucky you all are!

  13. What a splendid visit those boys have had...horses, dogs, rambling adventures, Cake, and a chance to share love with their grandparents. They are fortunate, and so are you and Lady M.

    Best wishes.

  14. Kids make the world brighter, happier, more exciting, and when they leave it's not quite the same.

  15. The magic times of youth. Reading your posts brings them flooding back except that my France was Wales.
