All is well


A wonderful feeling was receiving so many well wishes and comments, so thank you all xxx 

All is well. Work is very busy. So much to get down on the record but big huge wow I got assertive  change is afoot. 

I’m currently hemmed in by boxes and boxes. We’ve bought the pram and all the gubbins and it was all delivered today. It’s bad luck to be in Miss 29’s house yet. It was a Black Friday bargain and is one of those what they call ‘travel systems’ these days! 

When I got my pram, it was a Silver cross wayfarer and I loved it! It was a carrycot and then a separate pushchair for when she was older. I had the matching cosy toes, padded liner tht had a drill, rain cover, sun canopy and matching bag. It was an anbstract pattern of leaves annd swirls in peacock green annd blue annd my wheels had teal discs in annd I was so proud of it! I used to scrub the wheels weekly annd polish the chassis. It was then used for Mr 26z  And it’s all up in my loft!! I couldn’t part with it! I’m not sure what condition it will be in! In the New Year the HG will go in the loft and bring down our baby stuff. The cot is going to Newcastle. They will just buy a new mattress. It was a cossatto in beech. My sister borrowed it for her childers. I did once have a clear out of clothes but Inknow I’ve kept a few precious things like hand knitted cardigans that my mum knit and that I knit!!! Showing Miss 29 one of the patterns for a little romper suit I knit, she declared, it’s very 90s!! 

Well it would be seeing as she was born in 1994! These days they’d probably call it vintage! 

Right I’ll post a photo of Bluebell looking cute with her teddy, she caught me taking photos, and will sign off! 

What have you kept from the 90s??

So I have exciting news!

 In approximately 20 weeks time, myself and the HG will become grandparents! Our beautiful daughter Miss 29 and her beau are expecting a darling baby at the end of March and we are so over the moon, I’ve been floating in Outer Space

Yes of course the knitting needles have been click clacking away as much as my shoulders will allow! I have been adding to the stash for a while and it can now be deployed! 

This is a little matinee jacket and bootees ( need the ribbons in ) which was knitted over summer in 4ply hand spun yarn. It is so soft.

They decided not to find out what flavour baby and I am so pleased about that. There are no real surprises in life that can be better! I know the practical reasons for finding out and each to their own. There is a baby shower in February- a totally alien concept to me and I’m quite glad there’ll be no gender reveal shenanigansl! 

My next post will be all about one thing she specifically requested! It’s involved a lot of planning and preparation and it is underway! I didn’t even know they were a thing!! 

Lots of love from a very happy Nanna to be! X 

PS SOOZE - thrilled to bits for you with your impending move! 

To Sue and Marlene and all my favourite bloggers - I am still reading and loving your posts - just cannot comment which I will make more of an effort and will deploy my laptop more!

Time has flown

 Time really has flown since I last posted anything! I’m here through a bout of insomnia! I have much to put down on virtual paper for posterity. 

But that will not be now! Off to catch up on my blog reading. 

Watch this space!! Til then, my best Wordle from last week!
