Grandma Does London

Posted on June 15, 2010


Life in the Boomer Lane is in London to celebrate the first birthday of First Grandchild.  Like any besotted grandmother, she believes her grandchild walks on water (or he would, if he walked).  On her last trip to London, she tried to smuggle him through Customs between France and the UK.  She has decided not to attempt anything illegal on this trip, merely confining herself to minor mishaps.

On her first day, she took FG to Regent’s Part and returned without the diaper bag. Beloved Daughter detailed all of the non-replaceable items in the bag.  LBL was just happy to remember to have returned the baby.

In preparation for The Big Event (the first birthday) LBL filled what I thought was a whale-shaped cake mold that I had purchased and popped it in the oven.  The mold was for ice cream.  Ice cream molds don’t do well in ovens. This one quickly  started to look like a very depressed whale.

LBL has one week left of the visit. She will keep repeating: keys. cell phone. wallet. baby.  But probably not in that order.
