Grandma Again

Hello my lovelies , looking out of the window the sky is a mucky grey and it is drizzling but as a family we have had a sunshine moment this week - my stepdaughter gave birth to  our 6th grandchild - (her 3rd). William - to be known as Will was born on wednesday morning. both are doing well  although Nicola's blood pressure is a bit high so she is not home yet, we are looking forward to cuddles this weekend.
We are having our family Christmas dinner on sunday as we have a very quite and reflectful day on christmas day, 9 of us will be sitting down for dinner which my hubby will be cooking - turkey and all the trimmings. l forgot the sprouts on my shopping delivery so have got those this morning. l bought 2 bargain Norfolk Bronze ,turkeys on christmas eve they were £45 reduced to £11 in Tesco. one for sunday and one for Easter, l just hope it fits in the oven otherwise l will have to buy a saddle and ride it around the garden lol/

The card l have made today is to welcome Will using one of the gorgeous stamps from the last Baby release from LOTV.

Congratulations on your new baby to love & cuddle. What a wonderful thing to be looking forward to, as you designed this absolutely adorable card. Even with the pretty delicate lace, & your gorgeous S/B matting, it still said "BOY". Just very elegant, and a treasure for his baby book. (maybe these are not called Baby Books any longer..) Happy celebratory dinner too. Hope those good buys you snared work well in your oven. Sounds delicious just reading about it. TFS & Hugs. Give Will a big cuddle for me. Such happy days when a new baby comes home.

I hope that Nicola is home now w. Will & you are all giving lots of snuggles to him!! :))

I was planning on getting crafty w/ the girls this weekend, but my older daughter was really really sick & probably won't go to school tomorrow just to be sure!

Hope you have a great start to the week! Hugs!! :))
