Hope comes to visit! Usually, of a weekend, my granddaughter, Demi-Mae, comes to stay. My daughter, Hope, usually stays at home and has a bit of a break. She’s a lone parent and a young parent too.

Rune seemed very happy playing games in his room and waiting for … Continue reading Rune Nearly Doesn’t Move Out!
