I don't drink
Now I remember why you normally have children when you are young. My wonderful 18 month old grandson is here to stay with us for a few days. Today we went for a five mile walk and then played on the swings and slides for an hour. Then I went kayaking so he could play on the sand and stuff, then I took him swimming for an hour which he adored, then we played some more and finally he has gone to sleep. How I would have coped if I had still been a drinker I don't know. I would have stuck him in front of the telly no doubt and how rubbish is that. To think once upon a time I expected to be dead by age 56 like my brother and now I am 58. I might never have had the opportunity to share my time with this treasure. Thank heaven I gave up alcohol.
