It's that time of the year when it's coming to the end of summer but as the days get little shorter the berries that have been growing all season have become riper and ready to pick. We headed down to a place in Llandaff, near the Taff trail where we picked some last year but unfortunately the harvest was not as fruitful as last time although we still had a lot of fun in the process, especially as my mother and Mr A's grandmother joined us for this little outdoor adventure.
I feel very lucky that Mr A gets to have active grandparents in his life, who can do things like this, share their knowledge, make crafts, garden, bake and provide a loving environment as well the occasional break for myself. I can't recall either of my grandfathers as the one passed away when I was 3 months old and the other who lived in the UK (I grew up in South Africa) passed when I was 5yrs old, I had met him when I was 3 but cannot remember him. I did have a great relationship with my grandmother who lived to the ripe age of 100 years, although she struggled with mobility in the later years she was great at knitting and sewing also enjoyed travelling and flew out to South Africa a few times to see us, even in her mid eighties.
So when HSL Chairs asked us to be apart of their blogger challenge to celebrate grandparents and all the amazing things they do especially during the long summer holidays, we naturally said yes and Mr A even had a go at a mini vlog about his favourite things to do with his.
