Grandparents

It’s true our Grandchildren are the best
But Grandma and Grandad don’t usually get to rest
Between our houses it’s just over a mile
But in our bubbles we have to stay for a while

We need to wash our hands and stay away
And in our garden you can’t even play
Everywhere is shut the church, library and the pub
Now the village shops are the main hub

So at the moment there is a flu like bug
But we really do miss having a hug
We usually enjoy birthdays, roasts and family days
But need to wait and try to “meet” in other ways

Technology has helped us all to stay in touch
But face to face time, is missed so very much
Facebook, House Party, FaceTime to name a few
But my granddaughter teaches me as it’s all so new

When this is over we can celebrate and have some fun
Perhaps a family walk or barbecue in the sun
People worry about their jobs and loss of wealth
But we should be so very thankful for our health
