Ground force

Sarah's back at work, as of this morning, so Charlie's grandparents are holding the fort for a week or two until the holidays. We'd left a list as long as your arm with instructions; I 'phoned mid-morning to see how things were going. We anticipated getting home tonight to find my parents knackered. Instead, when I arrived, I was greeted by a scene distinctly reminiscent of the garden makeover show with Alan Titchmarch. Not only had they coped - admirably - and not only had Charlie behaved impeccably, but my mum and dad had found time to completely overhaul our garden!

  4. Hmmm, it's so not fair. How do they do it? What is their secret? And I bet they didn't even resort to the tele! Thanks for visiting my blog by the way!

  7. I don't know either, and I'm a granny. I think it's a good day if there's any space left on the floor to walk on. I'm jealous, though.

  9. I wish I knew the secret CTTF and yes, elsie, they do make it all look easy. There's even space on the floor to walk on, Z! It does indeed look pretty now, Lavinia. (You should have seen it before, though!)

  10. It does look good, and still lots of space for more flowery things in pots. I don't know what it is that gives grandparents so much energy - my parents in law can't stop doing stuff!
