Sunday Surprise


It was Sunday. Our daughter had said she’d see us in the afternoon. What a surprise it was when she brought her little grandson Lucas along who’s nearly twelve months now.

Here are a few pictures I took soon after their arrival.




While I took photos Peter already set the table for afternoon coffee.

The parents of Lucas were busy with something that needed doing to the house. Some kind of maintenance. So Monika suggested she could take Lucas along to our place. Her daughter Natasha was also with her. And we already had our daughter Caroline from Sydney with us. So we were a nice group of people having afternoon coffee together. Caroline had been baking the cake.

  1. What a sweetie! Must be something in the air drawing families together at the moment – we also had a lovely family get-together yesterday.

    1. I found your comments in spam, Cat. I don’t know, how they got there.
      Thanks for commenting. I loved this surprise little family meeting. It’s good to keep in touch with family. 🙂

  2. I like surprises like that. We love that boy. He is a very serious little fellow who does everything with serious intent. He was surprised and looked around in alarm when I removed my dentures in front of him.

    1. Ha, ha, we witnessed this, Berlioz, remember? It was very funny. We all laughed our heads off. Lucas seemed so very surprised and didn’t know what to make of it. He looked around with a big question-mark on his face as if to say: Can anybody tell me what’s going on here? 🙂

  3. What a lovely surprise.
    And you are a great-grandmother!.
    I bet that is fantastic because you can sit back and enjoy the children and then there is always the parents or the grandparents to hand them back to if they start to get testy.

    1. Yes, Elizabeth, a very lovely surprise. You’re right, I am a great-grandmother! Peter and I are great-grandparents. Our daughter Monika, who is one grandma, has herself five children. Also her partner’s daughter belongs to the family. So Lucas has a number of aunts, uncles, great-aunts and great uncles, as well as two sets of grandparents. Our son’s two little daughters are also our great-grandchildren. They live near Melbourne and we saw them last April.
      So we have three great-grandchildren already! 🙂

    1. That’s exactly right, Ian. He can take now a few steps on his own. He feels more secure when he can hold onto something and he wants to explore everything. It’s fascinating to watch him how he goes about it.
      Cheers, Uta.

    1. Ja, Gislinde, es war für uns eine ganz grosse Freude den Kleinen zu sehen. 🙂 Ich wünsche dir auch eine recht gute Woche. Liebe Grüsse, Uta.

  4. Very impressed with Peter’s table setting. You have similar chairs to us. Lovely family pictures am not surprised grand son is bewildered by dentures being taken out.
    I had the same experience when one found them in a glass next to our bed.

    1. You’re right, Gerard, Peter’s table setting is much to be admired. However we advised him to turn the cake plates around. Not that it really matters which way the end of the piece of cake is facing. 🙂
