After my day shopping on Saturday I was looking forward to a day with the boys on Sunday. The hubby had a few jobs to do around the house and I knew the boys would just get under his feet so I organised to go and spend the day with my Nan. We headed off once Finley had finished his football session and got to hers about 11.30. It was raining and the wind was blowing a gale.
As we walked through the door her house smelt amazing as usual, full of Nan's cooking. She was in the kitchen cooking us a shepherd's pie for lunch. Perfect! The boys love coming to my Nan's, probably because she feeds them biscuits and chocolate on demand, but it's somewhere different to roam and try to destroy lol.
Noah loves her fridge as it is covered in fridge magnets that she, and my Gramp when he was alive, have collected over the years on their travels. And they travelled a lot! After we had all filled up on her scrummy shepherd's pie we piled into the living room to watch Mr Tumble and to raid the toy basket. Every single toy made an appearance and they are obsessed with her fire place. Standing on, lying on and driving cars along the cold marble in front of it. Every time they go near this is makes my heartbeat faster as I'm so scared they are going to hurt themselves but nothing will keep them away unless I was to sit on it!
The boys then found their way into Nan's bedroom and started to bring out all the puzzles we had been hiding as they just get emptied and left. While in there the boys found a father Christmas hat and an Easter bonnet my Nan had made at one of her many classes, this one being a craft class.
And while they had these one I tried to take some pictures. And I love all of them! Some may be blurred and they may not be looking at the camera but the pictures capture their happiness and the happiness that they bring me.
They bring smiles to the rainiest of days.
