WHAT DID YOU DO THIS WEEKEND ?

My weekend was as exciting as a visit to an old graveyard. On Saturday I recovered from the flighting visit to Amsterdam, which had been quiet boring. Besides the visit to the hospital to see little Toby, we haven't done anything. Mr. G. didn't want to go anyway so we stayed at my son's flat and waited for him to come home as he spent the whole day with wife and Baby.
At home I worked on my photos which I had taken from the baby and the hospital, and was angry and disappointed that I haven't seen anything from Amsterdam despite a wonderful sunshine.
We had left the hospital in Amsterdam at 10.30 and there was plenty of time to visit, but Mr. G. was like a horse who smelled the stable and so I gave up, I didn't want to carry a bullet behind me either and we drove home. When I was finished with the photos, I made a little tour to a big store, but I got quickly bored and spent the rest of the day watching TV without seeing it.
Sunday was not better. The weather was grey and foggy, and I only went shortly over to Dominique to see the photos of her granddaughter who was born 2 days before Toby. Toby is a giant compared to the little Lucy. I hope one day they can play together.
The daughter of another neighbor also came because she had computer problems and Mr. G. is a specialist in solving problems at least on a computer, otherwise he is only creating them. From my son I heard that my DIL was already allowed to go home on Saturday morning after her cesarian she had on wednesday.
As you may read between the lines, for a fresh baked grandma I am not in a very good mood. We had imagined the first meeting with our grandson completely different. I think we went there far too early and should have waited a bit, although our son had invited us, I think it was all a little too much for him.
That's what I have seen from Amsterdam
and the view out of the flat's window. At least there was a strange bird to observe.
