Well Mother Nature was certainly in show off mood yesterday. I thought we were just in for a wet day but we got.....thrashing down rain, rain with a little bit of snow, rain with a lot of snow, rain, bright sunshine and blue sky and to top it all she ended the day with very strong winds which had me cowering under the bedclothes certain that something was going to come crashing through the window. It was very noisy and scary.
This morning I woke up with sore ears and a nasty throat....oh joy.
My son has been ill for a while, first with the tonsilitis and now he has an ear and throat infection which has knocked him for six. I saw him on Sunday and gave him a hug which as a mother you just do don't you? I thought I had perhaps caught it off him but now I have had my breakfast cuppa I feel a lot better so here's hoping.
When DDIL dropped Ruby off yesterday she was in some pain at the top of her legs and looking at her I could see that her bump had dropped quite a lot. I think baby may be getting ready to launch itself. She is worried that with DS being ill that he won't be able to be with her and so she has asked that if that was the case would I be her birth partner. What an honour. I do hope DS is well enough to do it but I would be happy to if he can't.
The two and a half hours I spent with Ruby last night were so full of joy. I am immensely proud of the beautiful girl she is growing into. I admit that in her early years I was worried as she was a very unhappy baby, very screamy and high maintenance. She did have her moments in the smiles and giggles department but on the whole she was very hard work. At six she is just the nicest, kindest little girl and I love her so much.........especially when she says things like........ganma you make the best chicken pie....ever!!! Bless her.
No big jobs to do today....just a bit of laundry to finish off and then I am going to do some sewing. In the last scrap bags I bought there was a huge piece of white stretch towelling type fabric which I am going to make into a bath time wrap. I won't ever use it if I don't do something with it straight away so that is my project for today and if I get that finished I will start on a serape with the two metres of black fleece that I have stashed away leaving me lots of room to store more fabric....yay!!!
Off to make a start then.
Thanks for dropping by today.
