Bye bye Granny Jean
So, took mum to the airport this morning and off she flew, back to Blighty. It seems like only yesterday that she arrived. We'd been anticipating and planning her visit for ages and it just seems to have flashed past. I think she enjoyed herself; we certainly packed a lot in. She's amazing really, so much energy, positive, up for everything. And it's been great for the girls - a good influence. They seemed quite shocked that she's actually gone. As was I when the Beijing Airport member of staff took her through to Immigration, and then swivelled her round in the wheelchair for one last wave. We won't miss the feedback in her hearing aids, though.
