All the work this year has been done, manly, so that the outside is safe for the arrival of one 14 month old. My grandson Theo. Well he arrived last week accompanied by his mum Sarah and Rachel and her boyfriend Brett. It was a bit of squash getting four extra bodies in the house but we made it and being able to all eat outside was a god send.
In the week that they were with us we spent every day out, as Sarah and Rachel had lived here for a few years when they were young, they wanted to see places that they remebered from before.
One of the trips was a visit to the Roque del Munchacos and observatories
The obligatory stop for photos

Thanks to our friend Sheila and her husband we all had a tour of the Galileo telescope (Italian) and the Magic (Gama Ray telescope).
Everone in the car park for the Italian telescope.
One of the two Magic telescopes, guess who is visible reflected in the box
Yes thats us!
It was great to see the girls again and meet Brett for the first time. But for me it was very good to see my grandson. I last saw him when he was only one month old, He has grown a lot. I think that is one of the few drawbacks of living in here. you just don't see your family that much.
They seemed to enjoy there time here, but now they are gone we plain to have a few quite days before getting on with more work on the house.
