The Gallery: Grandparents

The theme for The Gallery is Grandparents. I’ve chosen a picture of my mum with the big one, taken a few years ago. These words spring to mind, taken from a poem called Days, by Philip Larkin:

What are days for?

Days are where we live.

They come, they wake us

Time and time over.

They are to be happy in:

Where can we live but days?

My mum always filled our days, always kept us busy. Nowadays, she does the same for my kids. Simple things, like playing in the leaves. Important things, like playing in the leaves.
