On Saturday my daughter and I took Billy on the bus to Windsor. Jimi stayed at home for some bonding time with his Daddy. We spent some time in the park, had lunch in McDonalds and a little stroll by the river until it became too cold to be outside, then caught the bus home.
Yesterday I took Billy out on my own for a couple of hours. We walked to the park and he had great fun on the swings, slides, and climbing frames. I am such a nervous grandmother. I am terrified he is going to fall and hurt himself and I never take my eyes off him for a second. I don't know why I'm like this. I can't recall being so anxious when my children were his age. Anyway, he was fine, we both had fun, and we made it home safely!
I can't find words to express the joy I experience in the company of this lovely little boy. The pleasure I get from him calling me Nanny is overwhelming because even though we don't see each other often, he still knows who I am.
This trip has gone far too quickly. I have less than a week left to cram in as much time as possible with my daughter and grandsons.
And...I will be in Kusadasi after all for most of this summer season...more about that later.
