The relationship between Grandparent and Grandchild is special and important. I am so happy that Little Guy and Amelie have very special relationships with their 4 Grandparents. Looking back I am so grateful for the relationships I had with my Grandparents over the years.
When I was about 19 I used to spend quite a bit of time with my Granny - my Mum's Mum. When we were kids she baked these really nice patty cakes with pink or white icing. This was well before the time of cupcakes on every corner. The other day I pulled out a recipe book that I had started years and years ago so I could write down some of the new recipes I'd found lately. I made a lovely discovery - two handwritten recipes Granny gave me years ago - one for the patty cakes and one for a chocolate slice.
I often think that she would be so proud of the efforts I go to cook and provide the best food for my children and the gardening we do.
