Waiting, waiting…………….

No sign of the grandchild yet. He was officially due on Saturday. I was hoping for yesterday, 31 May, as that would have been my mother’s 90th birthday. This photo was taken when she was about 3. What a different world it was then. She was born just after the end of the Great War. When she was born we didn’t have antibiotics – a simple infection could kill. In her lifetime she saw the introduction of television, space travel, computers…….what a very different world it was then. I wonder how much change my grandchild will see in his lifetime – and how much will be for the good and how much otherwise?
