Grandparents are special people and they live in special houses, at least, mine do!

Emily is my grandmother and Anthony is my grandfather. They are old and their faces wrinkled but they still keep their sweet look and everlasting kindness, specially my grandfather.

They live in a lovely cottage in Stratford-upon-Avon, England. The house is not very big but my grandmother keeps it clean and tidy. It has only got one floor and the attic. Inside there are two bedrooms, a kitchen, a small living room, a dining room and a pantry. In the house there is only one bathroom. The house has got a fireplace, a chimney and a spacious balcony at the back with a fine view. In front of the house there is a beautiful garden full of flowers and colour.

I am Catherine and their oldest granddaughter and I usually visit my grandparents at weekends. My grandfather is always waiting for me at the front door with his arms open and a smile on his face. He hugs me, kisses me and listens to me. He is always willing to give me wise pieces of advice. I love to chat with him!

My grandmother is still a wonderful cook and she bakes my favourite chocolate cupcakes whenever I go there.

She is very tender and understanding.

I love my grandparents and the peace and quietness of their presence and surroundings.
