Weekly Smile: She’s Here!

This week’s huge smile comes courtesy of my newest granddaughter Lily, born this morning by c-section, six weeks early and weighing in at just over four pounds.

It seems she’s going to be monitored in the Special Care Baby Unit for the next wee while, and understandably my daughter is tired and sore but thankfully her worryingly erratic blood sugar levels have quickly returned to normal since her own beautiful daughter’s speedy but premature delivery.

We’ve all had a worrying few weeks medically, but thankfully all is now well with both of them πŸ™‚

Welcome to the world, little one! X

Off to Scotland for a while…

I’m off to Scotland tonight on the overnight train, so probably won’t be around much online (if at all) for the next few weeks.

I’ll be spending time with my eldest daughter’s family while we wait with anticipation to see how things go with the rest of her third pregnancy – see here for an explanation…

As of yesterday she’s back in hospital for the duration, but all is going relatively ok so far, it’s mainly just a precautionary measure to make sure if anything does go wrong, she’s in the right place for fast action. The plan is now to get her to 35 weeks if possible, and then deliver baby by elective section five weeks early…

See you all when I get back, hopefully with good news of a stabilised diabetic daughter and healthy new grandchild πŸ™‚

50 Sheds of Grey

I remember seeing a book once (while browsing in a bookshop) titled ’50 Sheds of Grey’ and it was actually a book made up entirely of 50 beautifully shot black and white images of ordinary people’s back garden sheds in full-page spread… it was awesome, and the play on words (although I’ve never read 50 Shades of Grey I do know it was popular) really made me smile! πŸ™‚

Oh, and my husband has a T-shirt from Old Guys Rule that says ‘The Dark Side of the Shed – Plank Floored’ πŸ™‚

Weekly Smile: Colouring In

What made me smile this week was finding my colouring books (while looking for something else, of course) and having a look through to see what I’ve done and not done. My A4 books have several different styles and sizes of colouring in projects, some small and intricate and contained and others broader and bolder and taking up the whole page, so I tend to pick and choose accordingly depending on my mood. Some get finished straight away, and some don’t. Some I come back to eventually, and some I just leave as they are…

And then what made me smile even more was starting to colour in a new page of shapes yesterday – what fun!
