The Best News In The World

Today was always going to be a busy day. We'd planned to go visit, with a view to procuring, kunekune pigs. Later we'd be going to the Wee Manny's for a surprise birthday party.

What I didn't expect was hearing from Dave that Zoe has been safely delivered of a daughter, our first grandchild. She was a week earlier than expected - the impatient little thing!

So now I must go and wash the smell of pig from my person and get myself ready to visit Zoe, Dave and daughter.

Sorted David. The baby has been given her rightful position and I've finally got round to admitting that chicken no. 10 died months ago!

Now the fun really begins. You can collect rocks & feathers, make mudd pies, paint and blow bubbles, and no one will think less of you.
Cuddling a baby is wonderful, but stock up on diapers.

Many, many congratulations to all concerned

Nelly said...

Thanks for all these lovely comments. Is there anything nicer than babies? I don't think so - not this week anyway!

Grannymar said...

Elly told me this news in Hospital. I was so delighted I almost danced without my crutches!

Enjoy every moment, sorry it has taken me so long to comment!

I've only taken ONE photograph so I expect I will have to improve my granny skills a lot.
