What a difference a day makes.
We are grandparents for the 8th and 9th time. Philippa’s family has doubled due to the untimely death of Mark’s solo-mother sister. She left two children, a boy aged 11 and a girl aged 3. Pip and Mark already have two boys, 13 and 10.Â They are having to suddenly double the size of their house to accommodate the extra children, arrange schooling and organise legal matters. Bronwen and I are helping them do some painting and other light jobs while we are with them for a week.
