As grandparents we are an additional emergency service... like the AA, the Coastguard, or Fire Brigade. We have concluded we are G-Force. We got a call from Urban-Cub this morning. She had things to do and baby Ellie was in a demanding mood. So it was that after the Silver Vixen's appointment at the local hospital, we went across in G-Force One and picked up Ellie to bring her home with us for the afternoon. She fell asleep as soon as we were in the car and didn't wake for a couple of hours. After a change and feed, she again settled down for quiet afternoon watching the rain on the Orangery roof. She was delightful.
Urban-Cub came round and joined us for supper then bathed Ellie before taking her home.
Lovely quiet family day... and not long until Cousteau-Cub is home with us.
