As a life goes so another comes: the circle continues.

This week has been a fairly normal week - going to work, coming home, watching TV, enjoying good food. We had good news on Wednesday (Bonfire Night) - I have become a Great Aunt!
My niece gave birth to a litle girl who has been named Lydia Florence. The proud Grandfather sent a photo which I'd love to share - but, what with t'internet being a public forum and all that, I feel uncomfortable doing.

I found this little outfit in Noz
so that has been sent off, together with a dou-dou which is so-o-o soft and cosy.
and a couple of pairs of cosy socks. I have to say that there are some wonderful baby clothes, and I have been particularly tempted by this range
With the kitty on it is so sweet!!

So a joyful week in our household.

Not so for my friend Alison, whose father died unexpectedly on Thursday: He had had a heart attack but was expected to make a full recovery. She had flown over to the UK to see him, but he died before she could speak to him.

Please, I ask you to remember her and her family in your prayers.

    1. How right you are. It doesn't make it any easier though, does it?

  2. Hi. Congratulations on the new relative and commisserations on the friend's Dad. X

    1. Thank you. There's not much more to say really, is there?

  3. Congratulations on the birth of your niece's little girl. I love the names. X

    1. I think they're lovely too. Florence was Ruth's mum's middle name. She died young, when Ruth was only 13, so it's lovely that she is remembered in this way.
