Happy WOYWW to one and all.  I really hope you had a great Easter weekend.  We had a super family time with a couple of gatherings of the clan  :-)
Sunday was a gathering of my hubby's family and it was really lovely to catch up with family members that we don't see too often.  We had a BBQ in a beautiful garden in the sunshine by the side of the River Vyrnwy.  Bliss.
Monday was our turn to host a party.  It was our youngest daughter's 26th birthday yesterday so we gathered all the family in our garden to celebrate a day early before everyone returned to work.  My darling hubby had spent hours over the weekend building a new swing frame for the granddaughters so there were two happy little girls occupied on the new play equipment in the sunshine.

This is the latest picture of the twin baby bump  :-)  It seems to have grown every time I see M  :-)  For those following the progress you will all be as thrilled as I am to hear M was well enough to go back to work teaching yesterday and is back eating for the three of them again  :-)

 How different can two bumps can be eh?  This was a quick snap of my youngest daughter A's baby bump taken last night....and there is only one baby in there!  We baby sat for her hubby to treat her out for a birthday meal and had just the best evening with our two gorgeous little granddaughters.  They really do melt my heart so if number three is just as gorgeous I can't wait  :-)

Here you can see the new box I've bought to hold all the baby knitties and as you can see it is filling fast  :-)....and yes I am still knitting for England.  I have lots of expected babies up and coming and like to knit a little something for each of them.

  Here is our personal computer expert fixing our lap top  :-)
I'm proud to say this extremely handsome, talented computer expert is my baby.....hehehe.  As you can tell he is well beyond the nappy stage but as all Mums reading this will know they are still your babies even when they are all grown up.  Thanks M for clearing off the computer virus for us....I will do my best to keep your Dad off those sites again!  :-)....seriously folks he was only searching for pottery marks to verify a plant pot's identity and a computer virus attached itself to very many programmes on our laptop!

My last photo is of that gorgeous crab apple tree that I showed you last week.  Already the gorgeous vibrant pink blossoms have faded to a delicate pink colour and are falling like confetti all over the ground below.  What a shame the beauty of nature just doesn't last a little longer eh?

Right folks, that's all from me for this week.  I am still catching up from having a few days off over the weekend and of course we have another long weekend up and coming too.  Please pop over to our leader's blog now and join in the WOYWW fun.  Thanks Julia for linking us all together.

M's baby bump is coming along nicely, Wipso. I watched a programme last night on BBC3 about multiple births. It's to be hoped M didn't see it as it might put her off! ;)

No seriously, people were managing with triplets, quads etc too. Amazing.

I adore your header textile of the poppies btw.

warm wishes

I remember knitting for England when there was only one on the way! Have you started inventing your own designes from the basic patterns yet? Knitting stripes with the leftover ends of balls of yarn etc.

I´ve been babyknitting, too! We are expecting our first grandchild - a princess it seems to be... and only one ;)
You have so beautiful there! Here (in Finland) those huge amounts of snow have just melted away! But we had a really warm Easter!

So pleased M is well enough to go back to work, and both bumps looking good there!
Your knitting is wonderful, love all those soft baby colours!!

Neet said...

I know exactly what you mean - my 45 year old son is still my baby - do we mum's ever regard them as anything else?
Thanks for the bump photos - glad M is back teaching and things are fine, and thanks for the hotos of your lovely weekend.
Hope you are knitting. Hugs Neet x

How lovely knitting for all those ' bumps' !
A friend who works the same day as me in the Charity shop bought a baby bouncer yesterday so we all asked if there was something she hadn't told us... yes she's going to be a granny !

Ciara said...

Lots of lovely photos this week, your 'baby' looks a wee bit embarassed, bless him!!

That's an impressive pile of baby knitting you're building up there :-)

Angie said...

Baby knitting is the best kind - even I can maintain interest long enough to finish a tiny cardigan! :) Lucky having a geek in the family - me too and I don't know what I would do without him when the computers act up!

Three new babies on the way, you will be busy knitting and baby sitting. Imagine all of the extra hugs. Glad to hear M is doing better and able to look after herself (and babies too).

Sam said...

Nicve to hear M is well enough to go to school and hopefully enjoy her time! Better be careful or you will not be able to move in your own home with both bumps there!! LOL!!

Happy Knitting!!

Sue from Oregon said...

thank heavens for our computer babies!!! My son keeps me going too!

RosC said...

Lovely bumps! I guess they've been around too long to be just Easter Eggs. No wonder you haven't been at the desk over Easter.
Our crab apple is bronze and losing its leaves. Isn't this planet amazing how everything happens in sequence. And how remarkable that we can talk about it across the seasons.
Happy days,
Ros (90)

Di said...

Lovely of you to let us follow progress of the bumps :) All that knitting looks amazing too. You would have been in Seventh Heaven yesterday - part of our shopping trip you commented on was to collect some curtains and cushions that had been made to order. Oh wow, the showroom had bale upon bale of fabby fabrics :)) And thanks for calling by my blog yesterday :) Di x

RosA said...

Thanks for visiting my blog. I too need to do some baby knitting. My niece has just had a baby and the only hand knitted item she has is way too big. That fair isle cardi I have started is for one of the other nieces little girl who has just turned three and I am knitting a size four to be sure it is done for her birthday next year!

Esther said...
