Ruby was 10 this week.

Yes.Ruby was ten this week.All five of our grandchildren are in double figures.Two are taller than me and one the same height.Where has all the time gone?Ruby,sat on my knee, had chosen a Chinese restaurant for her birthday treat and this photo was taken there.The food was wonderful but far too much of it.It was very happy occasion.
We love seeing these girls every week.We pick Ruby up from school.Emily walks home from Secondary school herself.We then stay until Mum or Dad comes home and we usually do tea.We don't see our Cambridge grandchildren very often,usually every couple of months.The time will soon come when they don't need looking after.I dread that!
Apart from birthdays what have I been upto.Christmas shopping is coming along nicely with the helpof Amazon.WE went to the theatre to see Not about Heroes.It was a two hander about the war poets Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon.It was excellent.We have seen the film Victoria and Abdul which we really enjoyed.I had Reading Group on Thursday.We discussed Sashenka by Simon Montefiore.600 pages long and lots of Russian names.It was Quiz night last night.We didn't do very well.Still,it gets us out and about and mixing with people.
I have finished my second sweater this afternoon,the olive green one.Now to start the rust coloured on.e.Photos soon.


  1. Your granddaughters are lovely. Happy Birthday to the ten year old. Well done on the sweater finish!

  2. Happy belated birthday to Ruby. They do grow up so quickly, don't they? I remember everyone telling me to enjoy each phase with my children as they grow so quickly and here they are now at 22 and 19, I don't know where the time's gone.

  3. Lovely for you to have these two grandies so close. Sounds like you re enjoying life and no mention of knees so that's good omen too !

  4. Amazon has been my main source for Christmas shopping, where would we be without it. Happy birthday Ruby, sounds like a wonderful time was had by all xx
