Welcome to the world Billy


My grandson, Billy was born at 3.03pm today, weighing in at 7lbs 8oz. He is of course absolutely gorgeous...which I naturally would say because I am biased.
I am amazed at the bravery of my daughter who had no pain relief other than gas and air, and who looked so wonderful after giving birth. In fact she looked like she had perhaps just been out shopping or some other routine daily chore.
And I now feel kind of stunned. I can't really explain the feeling except to say that I am immensely proud of my daughter and I'm as pleased as punch!

  6. FF, I follow your blogs, did not know you were back, I had been on it a few days and you said you were taking a break, was very disappointed, drooled over your Bobbles and Trinkets, especially dad's Art Deco cabinet, with the Charles Rennie Mackintosh tulip, Deco and Nouveau are particular favourite of mine, love the Limoges, bought a lot of antiques from the lanes in Brighton ( small world ).
    Was going to write in and say I am a relative of yours, so would be looking forward to my chosing of your delights, then as I said you took a break, so I did not bother, though don't forget, we are distant somethings from somewhere in the past.
    Just looked you are back, yeah!!, a couple of dogs shall be appearing forwith.
    Not made my profile available, time is my problem, only got round to doing the picture the other day, usually go to The Accidental Fan, Turkish Delight ( which it is indeed ), Dilettante's, yours when it was there.
    Shall make one as soon as possible.
    Privileged to be asked FF.
    How is Granny Ayak, that sounds good, I should imagine it feels even better.

  9. I've never been tagged before...what do I have to do? Answer the same questions as GG?

  10. Yes, and then you delete one of the questions and add one of your own.

    You then tag another eight bloggers.

    There's no pressure though. I actually enjoyed doing it, it made me think,
