Just when you think it is safe to reclaim your home, along come the grandkids.
It’s not always easy for us grandparents, who have not had to think about safety locks on cupboards, or the dangers of low-lying glass ornaments, for years.
We may have been revelling in the enjoyment of being able to put things where we want to without these concerns. Not to mention the absolute joy of a house that stays clean for longer than 24 hours.
It can be easy to overlook the dangers, to our property and tiny hands and feet, of carelessly placed treasures.
The thing about grandkids is that they come to you having learned a different set of rules.
