A NeW WeeK

Hubby and yours truly... on Christmas day.
It was a good day.
More on that later...

I ordered my annual "blog" book from the printers and it arrived safe and sound. I love looking through "old" books, remembering post of things I'd made in that year. It's always a talking point for a little while when the new one turns up!
BUT... it's always FuN!


While hubby and I were away in our caravan last August... I took along some wool to knit. Among other things, I made these little baby booties in PINK ... but I only just got around to threading some thin ribbon through the eyelet holes. Don't they look little and cute! These are now headed into the NaNNa ChesT.


Now... back to the pic of hubby and I taken on Christmas day...
We are smiling because the family were all told that we are going to become
 GRAND PARENTS  
for the first time.   
WooHoo and Yip-pppeeeeeee!  
Yes our son and his wife are expecting in early July. Now I know we aren't the first parents ever to become grandparents... love saying that by the way... but it IS very exciting for us... so please indulge one very happy... NaNNa- to-be. IF, in the next few weeks, I bore you silly... please forgive me.
GranDPaReNTs... GraNDpaRenTS... 
looks good any way I write it!
