Each journey begins with a single step... Two kiwis escaping from the island to explore strange new worlds and boldly go where thousands have gone before... . .

NEW ZEALAND | Sunday, 11 December 2016 | Views [394]

There are times that one or other of my children treat me like a dunce or a muppet or just like I am an annoyance that they just have to deal with. It is hurtful and disrespectful and if it weren't for my grandchildren I would quietly withdraw myself and continue my life with those I have around me who do like my company and appreciate me as a person and yes, who accept me as I am. Luckily usually only one of them at a time is usually coming at me like this so I ignore, ride the wave and pretend they don't realise how awful they are being. If they were little I would sit them down and give them a good talking to but they are adult and if I try to talk to them about it (I have tried albeit nicely) the situation just gets worse, so I armourplate up and carry on.
