Yes...this is ALL about me, and mine. Marvellously self indulgent, feel free to tell me how splendid I am, leave comments, nice ones please, I have little kids and teenagers who can do the rude stuff. I am a grandma, to the glorious Joshua, I'm allowed to look frazzled and weary, I earned it. The older I get, the more I see that hanging on and being patient is worth it! They ( whoever 'they' are) are so right when they say you never know what is around the corner, it isn't always an articulated truck! It is vital to make the time for making memories, friends are the greatest treasure, I love mine. I am rich!

Can you believe this boy?

The pictures tell the tale, I am standing on my driveway while Isaac goes to the STORE!!

Look how excited he is!!
And then I waited and waited and he didn't come out......Hmmm. maybe he freaked and couldn't hand over the money for the newspaper after all. I sent Seth in..........he came out and said " I can't find him,. he's not there" And OH! I sent him on his own and stood outside on the other side of the road and someone I went in and Seth was running and saying " He's not here!!" and I felt sick because someone must have whisked him out of the back door .....oh what was I thinking......and there he was, in a huge line, tucked behind a tall man and in front of a big lady, paper in his hand and
" Go OUT! I can do it!"
So we went back out and waited outside the house....

This is how close the shop is, I am standing in my about handy when you run out of milk or bread or chocolate.
What an enormous deal for my boy, doing that on his own and handing over money, waiting in a line with PEOPLE in front and behind and talking to him ( even if ignored them because he did I am sure!). He is a hero.

What a big boy he is, that is so great.....

I am in awe of the pickup truck parked outside the shops in ENGLAND, things have changed since I was in your neck of the woods

Oh and if I had a shop so close to me, I would be ten ton tessie and i would be tempted to be like the aul ones on Coronation Street and go in my dressing gown and slippers.

Becca......who can't remember her blogger passport and password, shag it =)
