The Photo Gallery 201: Family

grandad drew

A few weeks ago, the husband and I are sat chilling out on a balmy evening, watching our boy play cricket, when this photograph pings onto my phone by text.
That’s Grandad Drew with his new motorcycle. His pride and joy.
‘What’s mum doing sending me a photo of his bike?’, thought I “he’s had it for weeks now”.
And then I realised, THAT’S MY DAUGHTER ON THE BACK OF IT!

Grandad Drew: Retired fireman, other half to my mum, big kid, bloody great grandad.

    Grandad Drew sounds like my Mum's partner aka Pops. He is also a former fireman (retired now) and although he doesn't have a motorbike, he is pretty cool and the kids adore him. Hope Mia had fun. Z is dying to have a go on his Dad's motorbike…we just need to get him a helmet…which I'm putting off for awhile LOL.
