Eldest Grandson is 18 today. He came as a big surprise when his Dad was 19 and his Mum barely 18. It was a traumatic time. For any of you who may face a similar event, I have to tell you that he brought so much love with him (for all of us).
I brought him everywhere with me when he was small, and he was a delightful, undemanding companion. He’s still the same. Did his leaving cert this year but no great expectation of wonderful results. I just hope he gets into somewhere to do with radio or journalism for 3rd level or his parents will be disappointed. He joined the radio station with me about a year ago and does 2 shows a week. He’s coming on at it and on Monday had the first of his own shows (the others are with two other guys).
I was very bold and gave him his pressies tonight because although he usually stays here on Fridays, tonight his Dad was collecting him. Then I listened to his radio show for 2 hours – I have to admit, I did a bit of painting and had a G & T to save me from his choice of music!
I love him to bits!
