Lovable Avie

Good Evening Everyone,

I am late today. My Grandson Matthew broke up today for his Summer Holidays, it was his School Service this morning, his Mum and Dad were working and his other Grandma was also working, so I went to give him moral support, he is in the School Choir and they were singing at the service, he also did a solo, he was very good even the teachers said he did very well. Then this afternoon I had to go to the Hairdressers, I usually go on a Friday morning but had to change it, it was worth it though.
