The last month and half were hectic. All my grandchildren (3 in total) visited us . The last one left last week. And, I was surprised to find that I felt as bleak as when, in those far-off days, my children left home for university. It took me a day to get over it. I may have felt so very down also because I know that now life is back in it's usual routine.
Well anyway, there is still a lot to look forward to, mainly a trip we plan later this year and in some ways going back to routine too is comfortable. I am old enough to realise that for us seniors, like for children [:-)] routine may seem boring, but is most definitely comfortable.
