You think you’ll never forget…

But you do..

  • How tiny the fingers and toes are on a new born baby.
  • The feather like touch of a toddler’s fingers as they explore your face.
  • The skip in your heart when you see the first Snowdrop emerge from Winter slumber.
  • The smell of newly cut grass.
  • The freshness after a summer shower of rain.
  • The sight of a young couple in love, almost before they realise it themselves.

    – How the tiny fingers of a new born baby invariable grab your nostril hairs
    – The knife-like nails of a toddler’s fingers as they explore your face
    – The slip in your step when the ice begins to melt after Winter
    – The hayfever brought on by newly cut grass
    – The wetness of my t-shirt after a summer shower of rain
    – The sight of a young couple playing tonsil hockey while you try to hold down your lunch

    Too cynical?

    A few years back Marks and Spencer brought out a “cut grass” range. scented candles and soap with the smell of fresh cut grass. A little bit of summer in a handy storable form. I’d like them to bring it back.

    No no no. No artificial fresh cut grass smellTM

    We might just as well go live in pods.

    Grannymar, you are a little sentimental today – but I’m on your side over Darren’s cynicism I think.

    Just how long are those nose hairs? They must either be circus long, or you’ve had pretty dextrous newborns ๐Ÿ™‚

    Boys, boys what will we do with you?
    Darren & Will you are upsetting the ladies! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I’m with Judy on this one. Darren IS too cynical…

    I like your list, especially the one about the young couple in love.

    I like all of your list, GM.
    I would add the opening notes of Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony. Oh, hang on let me think, here they are! sorry….:>)
    The indescribable feeling (which my mother, my grandmother and my great- grandmother shared with me) of your daughter having a daughter, thanks for bringing that back…..
    The running of a marathon.

    Pssst, GM, don’t tell anyone, but did you see that Nick wants to be your toyboy? I suggested more likely you should be his girltoy….
    You’re welcome.

    Nancy ~ I am a compulsive people watcher and can sit for hours with a coffee and drink in my surroundings.

    WWW ~ Did I misread your comment, I have a daughter but as yet she has no children.

    Now are you responsible for the matchmaking? All the men who visit here are my Toyboys! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Darren may be cynical but I understand him….That clammy feeling of a wet shirt …ugh!

    I have forgotten some of your things GM….
    I managed to get as far as a half marathon n my way and then injured my knee….good time it was too.

    I jhad forgotten the feeling of satisfaction after vigorous exercise.

    Who else forgets the feeling of a job well done until they’re reminded?

    Magpie running was never one of my favourite passtimes. Now walking or scrambling over rocks was more in my line.

    I don’t think wise web woman realises – I’m likely to be about 619th in the queue to be Grannymar’s toyboy. There’s an awful lot of competition!
