End of an era
Yesterday I dismantled the trampoline in the back garden/yard, now I know this does not sound like the most interesting thing that I could blog about, but it suddenly hit me! My girls have grown up, they are now no longer children.
I’d noticed the trampoline had not been used this year,I thought it may have been because the weather had not been kind, so I asked them if they wanted to keep what had been their favourite activity for a few years, an as is the way with teenagers I got a long in depth explanation regarding their feelings on this matter, well actually they just said ,NO.
I suppose the writing was on the wall when we got a new fridge and it wasn’t immediately covered in pieces of art work and magnetic letters. I now live in a house of grown ups, even the dog is going a bit grey.
So that’s it then the trampoline has gone, they are officially young women and I’m officially an old codger, though the ladies in the house claim I’ve been a grumpy old man for some years!
Oh and just to prove that point I’m already moaning about the fact I’ll have more grass to cut, now that the trampoline has made its way to the tip.
