We had a surprise visit from Paula yesterday. I didn't know she was coming til the night before so it was a very special surprise for me. I was like a child at Christmas. Her darling OH and her 2 sons came with her and what a lovely bunch they all are. She brought the body bag full of contents that she blogged about yesterday and we all had a really good laugh about it all. I will at some point work my magic on the little bear for her and reassemble her. They came for lunch and we chatted and laughed and chatted and laughed and chatted and laughed :-) We all went to a local pub on their way home for some tea and we waved goodbye to them around 8 o clock. What a really fab day we all had. She was every bit as lovely as I imagined and I was really thrilled to see how well she is recovering from her major surgery [though I doubt she will suffer today!]
I bet you are all thinking 'Aw how lovely'. Well, of course yes it was, but I have to add it didn't end there for me. While we were all eating tea I had a phone call from my daughter to say she was in labour. She went into hospital about 11 o clock and gave birth to little S at 3.27 this morning. She weighed in at 7lb 10oz and is just perfect [although I am just a little biased]. Needless to say I haven't slept well for a couple of nights so please excuse any typing errors.
Update.......She was to be called Sadie but the new Mum and Dad have decided she didn't look like a Sadie when she arrived and she will now be called Louise Amy.....What a lovely name eh? I've had my cuddles and even had the pleasure of changing her first dirty nappy [yes the midwife in me is still there and it really was a pleasure :-) ].
