I have spoken a few times on my blog about my Grandparents. I am lucky that I still have both sets of my Grandparents around, which at my age is pretty rare. My Mum’s parents live near us and we often see them, but my Dad’s side live on the border of Wales so as such don’t get to see them as much. We try to see them every couple of months, whether that’s us going up to see them or them coming down to see my Dad. This weekend my Dad travelled up to get them and brought them back down to his house for a few days.
My Grandpa is 93 and my Nana is nearly 90, so as sad as it may be, it almost feels like we are on ‘borrowed time’. That is the inevitablity of life, and as much as you try not to think about it, I often do, especially after we have said our goodbyes. Therefore every time we see them it is so special, and I am so thankful that that they have got to develop a relationship with my girls. On Saturday afternoon we went over to my Dad’s and Step Mum’s for a BBQ, where we spent a few hours making yet more unforgettable memories. Both Mads and LL were such good girl’s and I managed to catch a couple of sneaky snaps of them when they weren’t looking. The fact that they are unposed and capture such raw emotion, are even more special for me.
These are ordinary moments, but actually they are some of my most treasured. We will continue to make them for as long as we are lucky enough to do so…
