A quick note on today's events. Today was Ben's birthday, 21 years old and celebrating his birthday in London. But surprise, surprise my eldest grandson Tom came down from Manchester convinced that there was to be a birthday party in Todmorden and he was missing out. It was lovely to see him again, healthy and tanned he is teaching at a gym a couple of days a week and three days he does his PR job.
There was the usual family chatter, in which things were joked about
|Probably at Vevey|
|Goth week at Whitby|
|Growing up into a teenager|
|Back from Uni and Xmas at Chelmsford|
It brings back so many memories, mostly of Whitby and their house there. Whilst their mother worked the little ones would go to Sally's house and she would take them down to her beach hut to play on the sand.
He is a grown up lad now, just as caring as when he was young, and perfectly happy in his life. My daughter was over the moon to see him, as was I. He has turned into a good young man.
