Letter to my grandson (xxxiii)

You have been away with your mum and dad in Perth for Christmas.  We have missed you  but it is good to see you with your WA grandparents who will be getting ready to say goodbye as I am writing this.

Because you spend so much time with adults when you’re in Melbourne, you interact very well with grown-ups, particularly when they respond well to you. But having a grandson on the other side of Australia is very difficult because he grows up without you.

You have, as as usual been a great hit with the family especially with the older girls.


And the local fauna.


My favourite photo of all the ones that your mum took while you were away reminded me of an illustration from A A Milne’s Now we are six.  I like to think it’s a picture of Christopher Robin with his grandpa.
