Hello Thomas:-o , You make me laugh today:-o How cute you are !! Very diligent boy ,I love your attire ! Good to see you little gardener:-)))))

Gosh Sandra, he has lost his baby look now, it happens so quickly, I can picture my own grandson and all his blonde tight curls, my daughter took him to the hairdresser one day for his first haircut and came back with a little boy, I was devastated, lol, at 12 yrs old now he refuses to have it shorn as much so it grows curly again.
Thomas looks so happy in his work, bet he can wrap you around his little finger, mine always has done and I love it........

Thanks Sue..I do like little boys with short hair..but he didn't have any lovely curls like your Grandson,so I would have felt like you..He loves being outside...and a great little slug and snail hunter too..the wrapping round the little finger is compulsory ! Lol.
..........

You can't imagine before they arrive how much pleasure they give you as they grow. I love to hear ours taking off T. Emily calls him 'little duck' because he used to greet her with that. It's lovely to have that really close bond with them isn't it.

19 Oct, 2012

 

That is very true,H.bird..and so much to look forward to ..:o)

19 Oct, 2012

I love seeing children taking an interest in gardening Bloomer, I think it is one of the greatest gifts you can give a child..Can't believe how much he has grown and what a handsome lad he is too! Simply wonderful blog my friend..\0/x

23 Oct, 2012

 

Thank you Flori..He loves being out there,as do all children,given the chance,and encouragement....so much to explore in a whole new world of life..beats being plonked in front of a TV ,anyday ! :o)

23 Oct, 2012

 

Bloomer, I think I will dress normally lol, Sunday is the Halloween party when I shall be wearing stuff. When we went to Dawlish Warren last year, not a place I would recommend, we were all in the club house listening to one of the very talented entertainers singing Are We Human. I was sitting next to Stevie and just behind where we were sitting, two young men started dancing in an obviously much rehearsed routine. They were not camp workers, but holiday makers. Somehow it was one of those moments which are special, magical, making you proud you are human, Stevie felt it too. So now I am ignoring my default mode (embarrassment) and will stand in line with loads of very young people (I should imagine) with my grandson to see The Killers:-))

23 Oct, 2012

 

Good for you,Ba...you will have a great night out with Stevie..and he will enjoy being with you,I can tell how much he thinks of you :o)..He seems to be a very caring young man..and have a good Halloween party on Sunday..:o) you will knock em dead in your outfit ! Lol.

23 Oct, 2012

 

It's the only time of year my nose fits the occassion;-))

23 Oct, 2012

 

Lol,Ba..you do make me laugh :o) ..what about the pointy hat?? ..:o)))))))))

24 Oct, 2012
