My son and his family are in Florida with other family and friends. They have just been in touch via FaceTime, its the first time I have used it and it’s amazing. Donna (sons partner) gave me a tour of their Villa and showed me the view from the balcony. My Granddaughter, Grace aged 2 3/4 told me all about her visit to sea world and said “miss you Grandma I love you”
They are there for two weeks I was going to go for a week to share the kids excitement when they saw all their favourite characters (Grace loves Micky Mouse). I changed my mind because I knew sitting in the blazing sun waiting for everyone to go on rides etc would be a nightmare, Donna said I made the right decision, it’s too hot with no shade and because there is so many of them (16) everything takes ages when they are all together. It would have been nice to be there but I’m so pleased they are having a great time and FaceTime brings it closer much better than a postcard.
I’m only 54 bbut it’s hard to believe how things have changed these last thirty years or so.
