Time to touch down with the babes! Iain and I did a bit of Granny and Grandpa Duty and had a chance to spend some time with wee Alastair (13 months and walking) and Ishie (27 months).
It is great to have a built-in story-person especially when it comes to bedtime. I have been bringing along my Richard Scarry books but the kids are still a bit too young. Ah well, I have that to look forward to!
Baa, Baa, Black Sheep and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star are the all-time favourites, closely followed by Jingle Bells. It is good practice for me to play things off-by-heart. I really must work on this some more as I very seldom do it (and therefore when it comes to ceilidhs it is a great handicap).
The best time of the day!
