So last week, on Thursday I went to visit my Granddad. This may not sound like anything special, but it’s something that hasn’t really happened in the past. I think there were only one or two occations when I’d visit without there being some kind of family event. So this was just me and my Granddad, one-on-one so to speak.

I’ll tell you what, I had a great time! It was really nice, not just from the point of view of having a good old chinwag. But also seeing him light up as he told me about his college days and some of his experiences during the war. It is something that I hope to make a weekly thing. So that I have to good memories of him (he’s 90, unfortunately you have to be realistic). This was one of the things that I felt was missing, to an extent, with my Grandma, at her funeral I had a hard time thinking of her when she was happy and before she went into a home and all that kind of unfavorable. So I’m not going to make the same mistake twice!
