I haven’t posted to my blog recently as we had two of our grandchildren staying with us for a few days. We had a wonderful time but many of my usual tasks have been neglected while they were here as I had far more interesting things to do.
It is a joy to have young children around as they have a totally different perspective on life and it makes you look at things in a refreshing way.
Our five year old grandson has a favourite book when he stays with us, it is an old book which was my husband’s when he was a boy.
He never seems to tire of it and will spend a lot of time playing a game that is in the book. He plays the game on his own but has two people playing. He seems to enjoy doing the counting on the board after each throw of the dice.
The book has certainly provided plenty of enjoyment. The contents page will give you an idea of the type of stories in the book.
I can remember as a child looking forward to Christmas when we would get a new Annual. I think my favourite was The Bunty Annual
or maybe it was The June Annual.
My brother enjoyed The Eagle Annual as it had Dan Dare, pilot of the future.
Of course, being Scottish, all members of the family enjoyed Oor Wullie
I seem to remember that my older sister liked The Schoolfriend Annual.
Did you get an annual as a Christmas present when you were a child?
