Just over a year ago we had had tickets to a Dinosaur show in London we took Max and our son to see it…Max loved it and does some very convincing Dinosaur roars.

So imagine his delight when meeting a not so wooly mammoth in the woods.

“Good afternoon little boy how are you?” boomed the mammoth.

“Oh! Hello” replied Max, “I am very well thank you, how are you” He’s a very polite and caring young man, our grandson.

“Well” said the mammoth in a very loud whisper “I am actually very hungry” Max smiled happily and said “I have cheese sandwiches and a flask of hot chocolate. In my backpack. We could share if you like?”. The mammoth grinned widely and said ” Those are my favourite things, I would loved to share, climb up on my back and we can ride and eat”

Max climbed up the mammoth’s trunk and sat behind his head. They polished off the sandwiches and the hot chocolate as they trundled through the wood. After a while and a long and interesting conversation Max fell asleep. As he did the woods melted into the walls of Max’s bedroom and the mammoth in all its bright colours morphed into Max’s bed.

Max opened his eyes and saw his books, shelves and his reading wigwam and cosyed in feeling happy, the sun was peeping through the curtains.

Sounds came from downstairs Daddy and Ben were in the kitchen, Daddy was making pancakes. Oh! thought Max it must of been a dream.

Later that day Mum and Dad took Max and Ben to a new park where they found a brightly coloured wooly mammoth…. Max told them all about meeting the mammoth and riding on his back and sharing a picnic. When he finished they all said what a brilliant imagination he had!

As they all left to go home Max hugged the dinosaur mammoth and to his supprise it’s trunk hugged him back and it said “Thank you Max, come and see me again soon.” Max whispered, “I will, I promise”

Just then Daddy called out “come on Max we need to be making tracks” and so they did. “Bye bye” Max shouted as he ran to join the others. “Who are you talking to” asked Mummy. “No one” replied Max with a smile.

One-Liner Wednesday : Art for Arts Sake.

Part of LindaGHill’s One-Liner Wednesday.

“That’s a lovely drawing Max can we keep it?” “Yes it’s me stroking Ruby. ….”

When it was time to leave, “I think I will take it home, with me.” Luckily we had snapped a photo of it.

Lovely to have a socially distanced, if not cold Easter visit from the Grandchildren. 🤗

Ben left all of his for Ruby.

What day is it Anyway. Friday 15th to Sunday 17th.May 2020.

Why is Linda hosting this post.

She said.”Because if you’re like me and stuck at home already, or if you’re going to be like me soon, the days of the week are going to be hell to keep track of. We have a wonderful community here on WordPress, and I’m sure many people are feeling nervous and/or isolated. I want to make sure every one of us has somewhere to congregate and someone to talk to.

Why am I writing this post ? 

Because it’s day ? since we have been told by Bossa to stay home and socially distance ourselves. We are all in different circumstances and yet we are all in the same boat.

So where do we go from here? I really don’t know, the signposts are all muddled, the directions are all so unclear. Our leaders are all lost, up the creek without a paddle.

Friday 15th.

Hardly any sleep up with the Lark at stupid o’clock, let Ruby out, feed, water and medicate her. Hubby up at sensible o’clock, feed hubby then he walks Ruby. Do housework,ironing and gave shower! Pilates at 10.30, like Wednesday’s class the WiFi was much better down stairs, it is less convenient and I had to draw the curtains as Hubby and Ruby were messing about in the garden and making me laugh!

We hear from the hospital that MIL is to be going home to her house tomorrow. Hubby also has a chat with her on the phone. We walked Ruby, had dinner, fish cakes, chips and beans, quiet evening.

Saturday 16th

Up with the birds at stupid o’clock, let Ruby out, feed, water and medicate her. Hubby up at sensible o’clock, feed hubby then he walks Ruby. Did housework.

We ring the hospital and find Mil is all set to be taken home but we don’t know when. They arranged to ring and let us know.

We have been invited round to our son’s to see the grandchildren. The rules as set out are we can drive over to their house and stand at their gate and they can talk to us from the front door. On the way over we stop of at a supermarket and Hubby manages to get a helicopter, a car transporter, two bars of chocolate, a bunch of flowers and a large bag of chocolate buttons. Though it’s only a forty five minutes drive to their house it’s the furthest we have been since lockdown.

It was wonderful to see everyone and they all seemed pleased to see us. We left the gifts on their window sills . It was great to see them even if we had to shout, absolutely no cuddles but the boys seemed to understand 💜. We took Ruby with us which delighted the boys so much. We stayed half an hour then we walked Ruby along the canal tow path that runs behind our son’s house. Just us we are not allowed to walk out as two separate households, so we waved goodbye and went.

We did not walk too far along the path as there were too may people there! The tow path was too narrow for proper social distancing but before we went back to the car we were rewarded with the beautiful swan family above.

We heard from the hospital on the way home they said MILwas going to her house at 12.30 in a Taxi with a occupational therapist who will access care provision, carer calling at 1.30 and again tonight and from there on 3 times a day.

That was such good news after all the worry and a month in hospital we let all the boys know and we were relieved. ..Hubby and his brother do not communicate very well so our youngest son kindly rang that afternoon and got us an update. Mil was happy and settled.

We had apple and pork sausages, mash potatoes, baby corn and sugar peas.

Sunday 17th

Up with the birds at stupid o’clock, let Ruby out, feed, water and medicate her. Hubby up at sametime, fed hubby then he walked Ruby. Did housework

I washed all the floors, threw out several pairs of shoes, did some washing. Hubby rang to see how his mum was doing, someone answered the phone and handed it to MIL. Hubby had a chat of sorts and he was delighted to speak to her. He then had a chat with the carer who sounded very nice. This set a lovely relaxed feeling to the day. It has been very stressful and fraught of late.

It has been a lovely day, weather wise and relaxing too. We heard from family and friends, our water was cut off for about an hour which got us and neighbours chatting..at a safe distance. Had some messages from friends and a phone call too.

We had dinner at lunchtime, Quiche, salad, coleslaw and home made potato salade.

This evening we are joining our friends from up the road for our weekly virtual pub night! In our own living rooms 😀.
