Well I said I would be back and here I am...... the clue I was going to give you about my surprise is not ready...typical lazy I think if you look at the picture you can see quite clearly what my news is. Nooooooooooo....I'm not pregnant BUT I am going to be a Nanny whoooooo....

My daughter Natasha is expecting and hopefully it will be here around 8th December.

My husband and I are both delighted after a few horrible years of losing people around us
this was very welcome news. In fact when she told me I sobbed like a loony....everyone who was there couldn't quite understand was I was so overcome but I make no apologies............

I cant wait and up until recently I would have said I'm not ready to be a grandparent yet but
actually YES I AM....

I have already started a small crib quilt which is coming along nicely if not a little slowly but I have got a few months yet. That was what I was going to show you as the clue but never mind you'll see it soon. We have already visited the baby shops a couple of times oohing and aahing
over all the lovely things.... even my son who is 18 got all excited in Mothercare and has already earmarked what he is buying the baby.


  1. How exciting, what fantastic news! I am sure you will enjoy every moment, I believe it is totally different being a grandparent to a parent, for one you can hand them back at the end of the day. I am not ready to be a granparent yet, but am still looking forward to the day when it happens,
    Love and congratulations to you all x

  2. Hello and congratulations! I can see why you said that my picture on my blog post was apt! How lovely! I am not surprised that you wept for joy! Lovely news, I am sooo pleased for you! Suzie xxx

  4. Congratulations to you all...lovely to hear your news - Your comment on my blog made me smile.. I need to start doing to.
