Not had a single drink today. (Well! nothing Alchoholic Laughing ) Been out with the little un, for the day. Up to Grange, then through to Flookburgh and Cark. She helped me put flowers on the grave of my Mum, Dad, Granny and Grandad. It felt sooo strange, as I had to explain the relationship to her,........Her Great Grandparents, and her Great Great Grandparents. Watching her help to arrange the flowers really brings the passage of time home to you.
Anywhoo! eventually landed back in Southport, and had our Tea out. I don't know about her sleeping tonight, But we certainly will.

Excellent WW, a grand score of 18
