In the Beginning


Grandparents are very special people. Like parents, they have no job descriptions or training. They just pick it up as they go along using the skills they acquired as parents but adding a bit! I always thought that being a grandparent would be wonderful because you can ‘give them back’! As I’m not one ( & have no immediate urge to be one) I don’t know if that it true but I’ll let you know when I do.

The picture I have chosen for this week’s Gallery theme over at Sticky Fingers is of my first wedding day. (Those of you who are regular readers will know that I’ve had 3!) When looking through my stack of photographs two things stood out. One that we did not take very good photos in those days and secondly that I don’t have photos of ‘both sides of the family’  from my first marriage.

I do have some photos of my son with my parents both of whom sadly are no longer with us but I don’t have any with his paternal grandparents. They are both still making a real impact on his life despite grandma being bed ridden now. You may remember the celebration of their wedding anniversary in this post – Bewitched

So, although he was not even a twinkle in his father’s eye, I give you my son’s grandparents.

Just look at that handbag my mother insisted on getting!
