Kimbo and the boys' eating knives have now been put away until their next visit. Only mine remains in use (right). Lady Magnon is much more sophisticated; she uses a pukka table knife.
For the moment enemy pop bottles will go unshot, water pistols will stay in the pump house and not in the skimmers, and the boys bikes will no longer lean against the Greengage tree. Everything's been stored away at Dangerous Fun Headquarters until their return.
It's all very, very, quiet.
Too soon!!!!! How can this be? They just arrived!ReplyDelete
Poor Cro. I'll bet your house is lonely now.
It'll seem very quiet for a while. I'll cope!Delete
That's sad. But put your feet up today and enjoy the peace!ReplyDelete
That's exactly what I'll do. I feel as if a whirlwind has just passed overhead.Delete
Back to normal.ReplyDelete
For a short while.Delete
They had a very good time and now it is time for you to enjoy the peace.ReplyDelete
They had a great time this year. Lots of new things. They also stayed by themselves for a few nights up at the barn; they loved it.Delete
I know that peace after an 'invasion' of grandchildren. But it's also a case of 'come back soon'. Hope they do.ReplyDelete
Love the knives. You do so much to make those boys enjoy their time with you. Those little things like their own knives count so much!
I also had a total overhaul on their bikes this year, so they were cycling around all over the place.Delete
They do leave an emptiness when they go, don't they? I hope you and lady M are ok. Another festivity (I'm afraid to say the word just yet) is around the corner and they will soon be back again.ReplyDelete
Greetings Maria x
Maybe before Christmas? I do hope so.Delete
Wonderful memories were made and now after a rest, you can start planning again.ReplyDelete
I've already started a list, mostly of things we didn't have time to do.Delete
Oh yes, I know the feeling too, but I also know the feeling of total relief to have the place to myself again for a while! Amazing how quickly we get used to 'normal' life again. Enjoy!ReplyDelete
I like to be busy, and having the boys here ensures that I am.Delete
When I taught school the 10 year olds were my favorite. Then, when my son was around ten, I wished he would stay that age forever! My grandson is now 10 and I'm captivated all over again!ReplyDelete
You're right, it's a fabulous age. They are so excited about everything, and desperate for new experiences. Lady Magnon says that when they reach 15, they'll be banned until they're 20. She's probably right too.Delete
Oh Cro ..... I bet you are missing them. I love all of the little ( and big ) things that you do to make their stay so enjoyable ..... you are a great Grumpy !!!ReplyDelete
Who's next to visit ? XXXX
Just friends for a while. I'm not sure when the boys will be back again; before Christmas I hope.Delete
Is Bok catching his breath too? What a lovely fun time he must have enjoyed during those precious happy, carefree days.ReplyDelete
He's a bit on and off with them. He loves playing with them for about an hour or so, then slopes off for a rest. They, of course, think of him as THEIR dog.Delete
Bye boys, I miss you. Kimbo and the boys' eating knives have now been put away until their next visit. Only mine remains in use (right).ReplyDelete
