Baby Sam update


Sam in bath 09-06-2013

Baby Sam is my second grandson. He was born on May 27th 2013 to the delight of all his family and especially me. Here he is having one of his first baths. Isn’t he cute.

On Friday he visited the cottage with his parents for the first time – quite an occasion and one of many to come. So far he has been asleep most of the times I have seen him. He does seem to be a very contented baby. I’m thinking he might have auburn, curly hair like his Dad.

Needless to say his mum and dad are very proud of him. Here is Dad having a cat-nap with his new son:

Isn’t that adorable? My heart swells with pride when I see my lovely family growing and thriving.

Now please read the Stop Press notice on the right-hand side. The news I receive tomorrow is going to change my life…

Dylan Update – November 2012


Last week my friend and I took my grandson Dylan to the local park. He likes it there! He especially likes the train.  He’s a good poser isn’t he!

Next he strode off to investigate the climbing apparatus.  There is a special floor in the playground, designed to be a little bouncy – just in case they fall off – God forbid!!! Managed to get his gloves on – finally!

He climbed up the steps quickly, but when he got to the top he didn’t fancy the rope bridge!

Next we went into the museum. I’ve been going in there all of my life.  By coincidence we happened upon toddlers’ hour so Dylan was allowed to do some drawing in one of the exhibition rooms.

He really wanted to find a dinosaur and although we looked and looked, we didn’t find one that day. Maybe next time. Please excuse the photo quality. They were taken on a mobile phone.

We had such a lovely time in the park and in the museum that on the way home in the car ‘we’ fell asleep!

Back at the cottage we had fish fingers and chips for dinner and then watched Ben and Holly’s Magic Kingdom.

A New Addition!


I have returned to England early to some great news!  My youngest son David and his wife Michelle are expecting a baby next Spring and so I am going to be an Oma again and Dylan will have another cousin.

My return to England was a little premature, by one week and dh and cat Millie are not with me. Suffice to say that our plans have changed somewhat.

However, I am happy to be back in my cosy cottage and looking forward to the new arrival with great anticipation.

Now to catch up on my sleep 🙂

Have a great week everybody! I’ll be catching up on what you’re all up to over the next day or so.
