I have very vivid memories of my day. 3.05am had me awake with a niggling pain and a nudge to DH to let him know i thought he had better think about getting up and calling the grandparents to come over and sit with DS. The sort of moment you dread when you need to be somewhere quickly, our car wouldn't start, but finally we arrived at the hospital and at 1.43pm on Sunday 6th August 1989 my daughter Amy Beth came in to the world weighing 7lb 5oz, a wonderful day for her dad and myself.
Her boyfriend celebrated his 23rd birthday yesterday so they held a double celebration last night with lots of their friends and tonight it will be a meal out. DH and i have spent a lovely time with her today and she has been thoroughly spoilt with lots of cards and pressies.
I had an idea to make her something special that would be one off and typical 'mumish' and i came up with this little celebration bunny. The little champagne bottle is filled with bubble mixture.
Happy 21st Birthday Amy, lots of love Mum & Dad xxx
It's been a really busy week here this week, i've felt really well, the best i have for a while and have made the most of being able to get out and about on my own. The only problem is i have not been on here or at home much at all ....
Monday was spent in the office doing the mundane work stuff, that took all day, filing is a job i dont like so tend to leave it till there is a rather large pile to sort out, so the job takes ages.
Tuesday morning was my yoga class. Its been changed from a Thursday afternoon during the school holidays as the hall is used for childrens activities. I had a very enjoyable time there and then a lunch date with an old friend i had not seen for a long time, that turned into an all afternoon event.
Wednesday was a visit to my dads elderly sister, a lovely day was spent there with lots of laughter about the 'old days'. It's such fun to hear stories of the things they used to get up to when dad and his family were evacuated here during the blitz in London. They liked it so much they decided to stay. She was off back down to the capital the next day to visit her son as he will be celebrating his 60th Birthday today. The stitching club was back on this week too but as well as the lovely cream cakes i had taken we had a very sad visit from one of the ladies daughters. Unfortunately she had passed away last Saturday, she was diagnosed with liver cancer only 32 days prior to her death! We will miss her very much. God Bless you Audrey x
Thursday was a trip into town and to the bank. A nice leisurely browse around the craft shop and i picked up a couple of balls of wool for a crochet project i have started (i'll show you that next time). A visit to the bookshop too to see if i could see the next Diana Gabaldon book, i'm a slow reader but only have about 50 pages left to read. Thanks for your input on this book in a previous post, i really have enjoyed it and will definately be on the look out for the rest in the series - only problem with a book you can't put down is that it cuts into your crafting time.
I have also received 2 more gifts for my birthday this week. Thank you Clare for the lovely pillow you stitched, i hope you have had a lovely week away at your caravan in Wales. Thank you also to Tina (no blog) for the cute Mill Hill cat bead kit and the adorable needle minder.
I hope you have had a lovely week too, and that your weekend is full of love, laughter and all the things that make you happy.
