We've been in York all day looking after our two grandsons. Both had some holiday homework to finish, so we 'supervised.' Jacob, 10, was happily tapping away on the computer, tracing the voyages of Sir Francis Drake - he knew far more about the computer than me.
Ethan, 8 yesterday, was completing a piece of work about a family meal, in preparation for his First Holy Communion. Having accompanied the work with a picture, he said " You can tell which ones are you and Grandad 'cos I've coloured your hair grey." I pretended to be sad, whereupon I was told, "You're still well cool, even if you're old.'
There may have been a compliment in there somewhere.
