Less than a week to go
So I'm cheating with this one of Billy ..it was taken a couple of weeks ago by my daughter. But I am determined to get the hang of it eventually.
The time is flying by..as I thought it would. In spite of dreadful weather at the weekend, I had a really good time. My daughter cooked a wonderful meal for me and her in-laws on Saturday evening. We had a very enjoyable Sunday afternoon at my brother's house...my daughter, son-in-law and Billy, and my nieces, along with my niece's little boy, Matthew, who was born a month after Billy.
My sister-in-law always produces lots of lovely food, and my brother never allows anyone to have an empty glass...in fact he tops you up when your glass is half empty....so a merry time was had by all.
My daughter and I took Billy out for a long walk today, and visited the grave of my mum and dad. Although neither my daughter nor I are religious, we both feel that my Dad watches over us. I sometimes feel his presence, I can't really explain it, but I think it's more to do with how much I loved him, and still miss him. Often when I have a problem, I have a conversation with him in my head, and it's almost as if he comes up with a solution.
Billy seems to be getting to know me now, and I am enjoying his company. He is such a happy little boy...a real joy to be with.
Less than a week to go until I return home...it's going to be so difficult to leave.
