Do you ever get a comfortable feeling right from the start of a relationship?
That is how I feel about my son's fairly new girl friend.
We are all comfortable around her. She is similar to us and has the same kind of interests. She is a people person and makes everyone feel special.
Although this relationship has *taken off* quite fast and amazed everybody involved, nobody has been hurt by it. She has two children by a long ago union that finished ages ago. My two grand children adore her and her two children. They are all friendly with each other and one huge attraction is her dogs.
In a recent post, I described them as Choodles..... but I have been informed that they are in fact, Cavapoos. That is a cross between King Charles Cavalier spaniels and Miniature Poodles.
Anyway, by default, we have inherited these dogs as well as two extra *grandchildren*.
It is not at all unusual to be asked if I'd like to go for a walk over the Common with them while they exercise the dogs and I have just had my oldest granddaughter and Sandy's daughter stay the night with us and they have got on really well and have been no trouble at all.
I like the way Sandy has included me in pub lunches and walks and things. I have never had this happen before and I must admit I am enjoying it immensely.
After all the turmoil that everyone has been through over the last few years, this is like a breath of fresh air.
I have been described as pessimistic....... but I am so hoping that the bubble will not burst.
