Discussion and flexibility with action will be important keys to a satisfactory outcome

Have a culinary adventure on the weekend, with exotic tastes and conversation to stimulate the palate and the mind

It's a busy start on Mondays. It's not a time for spending. Communications may be uncertain at first. Shed the encumbrance of other people's business if it's not doing you any good. Rein in the spending, making sure that you get value for money on the things that you need. There'll be a new venture, one that represents a step up. Don't run red lights. Set a pattern for the weeks ahead. Scale down the size of the festivities and just enjoy something simple with your loved one and family. Arrangements for destinations or communications might not work out as you'd hoped but scramble through as best you can, looking towards a more fortunate week. Don't go overboard just because you want something. The weekend's perfect for some tasty foreign cuisine and a get together with exotic or unusual friends. The weekend will bring people together somehow. The weekend's your time and you'll be ready for culinary fun, luxurious indulgence or a little romance.

The feature events and there'll be opportunities or people of standing in the frame

Dinner with friends or a favourite group activity will be the ideal start but you'll need to take some quiet time after that. There might be a 'love' link. If you're waiting on news or communications, they'll be coming down the line as these weeks get underway. Food and conversation will make a cheerful break from the routine stuff. Those who it matters, Happy birthday. On the weekends, be organized and efficient with occasions or responsibilities. You may end up with a domestic or family concern later in the week. Aside from that, it's money and the budget at the start and it's the bliss of family or the demand of domestic duties on the weekends. Avoid using the plastic on impulse. Set a new course. Give the weekends over to your loved one. Put money into household improvements. Look after yourself and opt for a quiet celebration as you look forward.

You might even hold one yourselves!

It's a busy start and communication will feature. Focus on the issues or needs of loved ones or the domicile. A legal matter or a study concern may be in the frame. Fresh connections will emerge or new duties will fall to you. Let things run and don't blow a fuse, just get on with the simple life and the little jobs, stepping in time with your loved one. There'll be a mood of confusion hovering in the domicile these weeks, as you try to sort the vagaries of love or spending. Don't forget the spaghetti marinara when you head out for a meal. You might be inspired to plan for travel or study to open horizons for the future. Sundays calls you to a far horizon. There may be intense activity or an element of risk. A new creative impetus is needed. There may be a domestic or family matter to discuss. The responsibility falls to you so be ready for action.

The history of our grandparents is remembered not with rose petals but in the laughter and tears of their children and their children’s children. It is into us that the lives of grandparents have gone. It is in us that their history becomes a future. ~Charles and Ann Morse

What is it about grandparents that is so lovely? I’d like to say that grandparents are God’s gifts to children. And if they can but see, hear and feel what these people have to give, they can mature at a fast rate. ~Bill Cosby

My granddaughter came to spend a few weeks with me, and I decided to teach her to sew. After I had gone through a lengthy explanation of how to thread the machine, she stepped back, put her hands on her hips, and said in disbelief, "You mean you can do all that, but you can’t play my Game Boy?"

Soon I will be an old, white-haired lady, into whose lap someone places a baby, saying, "Smile, Grandma!" — I, who myself so recently was photographed on my grandmother’s lap. ~Liv Ullmann

What children need most are the essentials that grandparents provide in abundance. They give unconditional love, kindness, patience, humor, comfort, lessons in life. And, most importantly, cookies. ~Rudy Giuliani

Our grandchildren accept us for ourselves, without rebuke or effort to change us, as no one in our entire lives has ever done, not our parents, siblings, spouses, friends — and hardly ever our own grown children. ~Ruth Goode
