Lets go fishing

Thank you all for your comments which I enjoyed reading very much. Well my grandson has arrived with a bit of encouragement, including a blue light dash between hospitals, as he was determined not to put in an appearance. I don't really blame him as we have had such an appalling spate of weather. I have been watching the news and wonder if I am on the same planet, as we had rain all day yesterday and the news said we didn't. 
I will not be able to blog or comment in the coming week as we travel tomorrow and I shall stay behind on The Wirral for a few days helping out. Fortunately I am not driving as it is 200 miles and today's journey of 60 miles was quite trying. (I really must start doing better with my driving).
With loads of thanks to my pal Hazel at http://hazelsbasketsofjoy.blogspot.co.uk/ as my nappy cake was very well received. It is not to Hazel's beautiful standard but I enjoyed making it and was especially happy with the little romper suit as both parents enjoy fishing and it got a great chuckle. Here is my attempt anyway.  Hugs until I see you all again.


  1. Well done you, and big CONGRATULAIONS to the whole family.
