There is a season……


A reputation in tatters is what you see before you. Years of studiously practising to be a grumpy Grandad has gone by the board.

Be warned, this is what happens when you’re surrounded by the amazing children of your own amazing children.

Overwhelmed with love. (sad old hippy)

  1. Best family photo ever! Roger, you look every bit the cat who got the cream. Or the happy child covered in ladybugs. Adorable.

    You’re in trouble – that looks like Lord of the Flies 😉

  3. They look as happy to be there with you, as you are to be there with them! 🙂

  4. Mother of pearl. Best photo ever. And lots of fabulous hair…

  5. Tessa says:

    Lovely photo :).

    ‘Pleased as Punch’ methinks the saying goes . . . looking at those extraordinarily cluey faces ‘in on it’ it seems, what a photo to look at when ready for bed . . . .

    I believe those hippy genes are thriving in this new generation! Just look at those faces 😀

  8. I am envious of that punk hair. Gorgeous children, Roger. I know you have a photographer son. Did he take this shot?

    • Absolutely right. We were on holiday with him and his family. At this point he’s stuck in Calais, waiting for the Eurotunnel to whiz him back to London. Unfortunately, with the amount of Brits going home from France after the holidays, there’s very little whizzing to be done:)

  13. Lisaman says:

    Hahahaha nothing grumpy in that face!! 😉

  14. Awesome photo, Roger! I like the smiles 🙂

  15. Roger, it looks like that your grand kids of your great kids adore the “grumpy” grandpa and are ready @ any time for having some mischievous fun with grandpa, so you look like it too. A great picture that tells stories.

  16. They are gorgeous Roger 🙂

  17. Flora says:

    That is a perfect photograph!

  18. Karen says:

    The big smile on your face says it all…I love it. 🙂

    Oh those kids with all their wild hair and grins! They look SO naughty! Now wonder you have succumbed! You old grouch. NOT!! Fantastic..

  20. ChgoJohn says:

    There’s no law stating one cannot be content as well as grumpy. This is a portrait of sheer contentment, Roger. Perfect!

  21. That is a wonderful, wonderful shot Roger – you’ll all treasure it for years to come…getting older certainly has its compensations!

  22. Roger, that picture is amazing. And those grandchildren…chips off the old block if ever I saw them…

  23. I don’t believe you could ever have been a grumpy old Grandad. Your grandchildren look like real fun 🙂
