I am glad the holidays are over. They certainly didn't live up to my expectations but I did get to drink some cheap champagne( it was really only bubbly wine I think) NYE and saw the fireworks- I still remember them. The dog was so calm and we were right in the middle of them.
The dog has now been given to a nice man who is a hunter and has several hunting grounds. Oskar said that with his baby on the way he wouldn't be able to cope with the dog as well.His decision. But he misses his best friend.
Yes there is a little grandchild on the way- come May/June I will be Grandma again. The first one I never see as we are estranged- I have seen him once in his 4 years. Sad. I wonder what my son tells him about me? That I am mad and can't be trusted with a knife? I wonder?
Anyway new baby- My god I'll be an awful Grandma. I'm already a nervous wreck at the prospect.
I imagine a Grandma as Sheeva the elephant goddess. I wish I was! Several arms to cope with everything-multi-tasking- I can hardly walk how am I going to cope?
But I can just see myself with the pram going for walks around the neighbourhood- maybe on the common or meadow, in the forest- these are places I love- so close to peaceful quiet nature.
