visit to tommy's grandad

Well todays visit with tommy's grandad went pretty well. Jim looked thinner and about 10years older than I'd expected him to look. Losing his wife has taken its toll on him. Marie died 4 years ago (that was last I saw him) anyway, tommy was shy and quiet and didn't speak too much but that's to be expected as he was about 2/3 years old when he saw him last. There were a few ackward silences but mainly the conversation went well. He said he hadn't seen tommy's dad for about 3years. So he didn't ask details and I didn't give any on the why and wherefore of why me and his son split up or the nonsense that's happened since. We have arranged to go visit again next sunday. So at least that's the first visit over with xx
