Sadly my daughter has a drug habit ,so her children are in care ,2 with me &1 with my Mum .We love them of course but it ruins the Grandparents joy seeing grandies ,few times a week ,cause the children are with us all the time .Trying to keep up dated with new technology etc is hard .Not feeling sorry we have these children they need to stay in the family,but it’s hard chasing a 4yr old when feel the old bones creak !
