I mentioned earlier in the week that I don't get to see my family a lot.

This week, because I've been staying with my mum to help her out, I've seen a lot more of them.

And I've realised just how old my grandparents are. They're suddenly looking old and acting old, too.

I noticed that my Grandma's hands and jaw shake as she's having a drink. My Pap's neck is all saggy. Grandma's eyes are a bit droopy...

When I think about it, though, my Pap is 2 months away from his 80th birthday, and my Grandma will be 70 next birthday. Despite that, they're both incredibly active - my Pap walks the dog for an hour every day, spends time in his garden weeding, mowing or "harvesting" his crops and goes out to the football every week, while my Grandma is constantly on the go - organising some daytime activity or another for the "old people" in the village.

I hope I don't have anything to worry about, but I can't help it...
