Haven't you gone yet?
We've been and back again.
We never go until sept
Weíre a bit late this year
And our house will be taken over by our son and his newly pregnant partner , her 2 kids and our Izzy
Whose far from easy
Itís just been newly decorated throughout
And I quivered
Did I want three kids and a baby in my house ?
And a partner I donít really know ?
And more to the point
I flee for home when home calls
This time Iíll have to ignore the call
Stay where I am
Itís just a house I tell myself
And it is
And the relief on their face when we told them they could stay here was priceless
So maybe grandchild number 11 will delight me the same as the other ten
Even though Iím not sure
But if it is Iíll know the moment I set eyes on it
And if itís not ?
Well neither is my Izzy , my adopted grandchild
Much like me she once belonged to no one
Until my son adopted her
A baby who was hard to raise , damaged by alcohol
And hopefully this family will continue to support her
Goodness knows sheís the apple of our sons eye
Difficulties not withstanding
Itís a funny thing is life
