Auntie Em....

This weekend saw my sister and her fiancée coming to stay as they had tickets to see the shooting at the Olympics today.

They arrived last night and much wine and chat was had by all... Which meant we didn't go to sleep until the wee small hours and they had to be up at 6am to get to the park by 7.30.... However, hats off to them both as when we arose at around 8am they had already left.

Unfortunately, both kids both missed their departure and when they got up they raced into Aunty Emma and Uncle Stuart's room. "Where are they?" TJ wailed upon seeing the empty bed. "They went to the Olympics." Granny told them. "Without us?" Lea  exclaimed. "Well, they only had two tickets." Granny told them.

TJ thought about this for a moment and then said, "They used to be my favourite Aunty and Uncle but now they are just rubbish.... Didn't they know I wanted to go to the Olympics too?... I wanted to win a medal!"

We then had to explain to TJ that they weren't actually competing in the Olympics but were just spectators at the shooting events. He thought about it and then said, "If they won't let you fire the gun then why would you go?".... A psychologist would have a field day.
