Catch up

Back from our little jaunt. Although it was only the day before yesterday we left Devon it feels like an age ago. Perhaps we've passed through a time warp ...
Anyway we had a lovely time with children and grandchildren and the weather's been beautiful, really warm and sunny. The beach, the garden, the river and the park, we've done them all in the last 3 days.

GrandSon, who's 2 months old today, is growing well and giving gorgeous smiles. I think he might be in training for the London Olympics the way his little legs work so furiously when he's lying down. Oh, couldn't you just eat them?

And Younger Son's presentation at the RGS conference went very well. Elder Son went to watch and support him and he was of the opinion that his little brother was the best of the three speakers in vaguely the same field. He didn't have a huge audience (last thing on a Friday afternoon) but those present were interested and asked questions. All in all YS was pleased. Now all he has to do is find a job and somewhere to live when he and Girlfriend move to Plymouth so he can begin his PhD.

He's come on a long way from the uninterested depressed lad who dropped out of university first time round a few years ago. He's worked hard, met and got engaged to a lovely girl, and has a new future to which he can look forward with enthusiasm.

Life is so good.
