As Time Goes by

It’s very interesting watching things when you view them from different angles and at different stages in your life. We have the good fortune of being able to share in our little grandson’s world and on the other hand we are lucky enough to still have Mr ATMT’s mum of 88 active and able, enjoying her new life in the ‘lifestyle village’ which is now her home. She is busier than ever and people have to book weeks in advance to be able to get an appointment with her! It is so rewarding seeing how these two people at extreme stages of their lives react to each other and just ‘click’. Jean is very easy to ‘click’ with though!We had a family lunch at the Rye pub at the weekend which is close to where Jean lives. This was a combined Christmas and birthday gift to her; and its taken ages to get it organised so everyone could get together (and she was available). Here we all are (minus one on duty son-in-law) freezing on the beach after our lunch at the pub. It was great doing all those daggy things like chase the seagulls, a family tradition from way-back. Ironic that Cameron happened to have his eagle suit to hand!

So very lucky are we.

    Maree, this is such a special post — your thoughts on angles and stages, family traditions, and “clicking” — that first photo (and your new header) illustrate them perfectly. The video is smile worthy, too! Loved hearing the belly laughs and giggles — and how ’bout that eagle suit?! 🙂 xo

    Family is what life is all about, isn’t it?

    Great shot of Gran and Gt Grandson. Is she in the Village Glen at Rosebud, by any chance? An elderly friend and I took a tour there a couple of years ago. Certainly enough activities there to keep anyone on the go.
