What I'm missing

The past few days have been quite hectic.  I'm going over to the hotel most days and am really enjoying it.  Since I've been there during the past couple of weeks, I've been getting to know the woman who runs the small hotel shop with her husband.  She is English, her name is Gwen and she has been married to her Turkish husband for two years.

We seem to have lots in common and we are both absolute the time has flown by.  It has been extremely hot and humid today and Gwen and I were discussing how our ankles swell up and our feet are  sore.  I said wouldn't it be lovely to be able to sit there with our feet in iced water.

I didn't realise Mr A was listening and 5 minutes later he appeared with a huge empty container, full of water and ice cubes, so Gwen and I took it in turns to dip our feet... what bliss!

Oh......  my post title..."what I'm missing"......this is what I'm missing and what I can't wait to see in beautiful grandsons...who are growing and changing every day:

Good grief it's Friday again!  Where has this week gone?   Have a good weekend everyone xx


  1. You sound so content and that's wonderful!

  2. Thanks Kelloggsville xx

    Charlotte Ann: I am pretty much x

  3. Mr A is a very kindhearted man! Had to smile at the thought of you two with your feet in that container!

    And just look at those two little boys! Two good lookers! Billy has grown into quite a grown up little boy and jimi has changed beyond recognition! Babies do it all the time, don't they?
    He will no doubt, be a very different little lad by Sept.
    Isn't it exciting?
