Bye bye Grandma!

Sam and Cara in Greenwich parkSadly today was Sam’s grandma’s last day down in Southland with us. We tried to hold on to her for longer but she insisted that she was needed back home and that her train was leaving today.

Yesterday Cara collected us from our home in the morning and took us back to her place while we decided what we were to do that day. We had made plans to maybe visit Greenwich – but changed our minds when we realised that it would be a bit of  a tricky journey. However, we did go in the end and spent some time doing a little window shopping in some of the lovely little Greenwich shops and then went to a little cafe near the entrance to the park.

After a tasty lunch which included a cake course (yum!) we headed off for a quick wander round the park where we came across a very nice play park which looked like lots of fun, definitely one to come back to when Sam is a little older. Unfortunately our trip back home was slightly traumatic as our bus driver didn’t seem to be a very good driver and had some real problems with a hill start after which a good few people decided to get off… that’s the last time I avoid doing a short walk by catching a bus!

Today Cara brought round her mum and minion number 4 (aka Nick) to spend some quality time with Sam. We all visited the mobile toy library together (hooray for the big white van!) and had a simple lunch back at tea towers before it was time for Sam to say bye bye to his grandma.
