I went to play with my grandchildren yesterday and I had FUN!
At the end of the afternoon they didn’t want me to come home and the 5 year old tied a scarf round my legs and held on tight to it (he was a bad pirate) so I had to shuffle precariously across their hall floor, edging my way to the front door, while the 3 year old (another bad pirate) hit me with a foam rubber sword. It was a scream – in more ways than one. I eventually escaped, amidst much laughter, and told them to wave to me through the front window – the 5 year old shouting that he would pounce on me and tie me up as soon I went back next time. Fabulous.
When I came home and told Dave what a good time I’d had, he said I should have left them calm and quiet for Zoe, not wound up and rumbunctious. “You’re like the worst  kind of supply teacher,” he said.

"Winter must be cold for those with no warm memories." (from the movie An Affair to Remember)

Just think of the memories you're giving to your grandchildren! ;) Fabulous!
