Happy Anniversary and Some News

Today is our 21st wedding anniversary. Boy, does time fly! It really does not seem that long ago.



Hubby picked me a single red rose from the garden this morning. That is exactly what my love language is - small gestures of homemade loving, not big, expensive gifts or dinners out. So it was lovely.

And now for some news - the image will give it away a bit!



No, it isn't me! But I am going to be a grandma (I still cannot believe that word!) Yes, my oldest, Miss Butterfly, is having a baby, due 20th August. I am still getting used to the idea that I am going to be a grandma at 45 - I don't feel old enough! But she has always wanted to be a wife and mother which I guess I can't fault her on. She is very young, only 19, but she will be a wonderful mother. And I am only around the corner whenever she needs me!
Cuddlepie (who is 3) does NOT want to be an uncle. Whenever someone mentions that he will be an uncle, he bursts into tears and says 'I don't want to be an uncle. I don't like uncles!' Pretty sure he has no idea what an uncle actually is, but he doesn't like it. Maybe he thinks it will change him somehow!

So keep an eye out for even more baby knitting and sewing in the next few months!

    1. Thank you so much! It is a bit strange being a grandma with a three year old myself!

    1. Thanks so much! Grandma though - still can't get used to that word! My daughter and I were looking on the internet and there was a list of cool names for grandmas. So still deciding. I actually quite like Marmee (from Little Women). Hubby is going for Pa and Ma - over my dead body!!

  6. Congrats on both of your good news, 21 years and the grandbaby. I was 45 when I became a grandma and it is the best thing. I have never worried about getting older (only the gray hair) but it is hard to get use to the name. I am plain old grandma and my daughters mother in law is granny and it fits us both fine. Our oldest granddaughter is nearly 2 (in April) and it is so wonderful when we see her and she recognises us and puts up her arms for a hug. Oh the joy, nothing better. No 2 son (7) is happy to be an uncle although he does hope for a boy this time after 2 girls. We don't care what sex the baby is, you just love them all. Thanks for sharing this great news with us all at Good Morning Mondays. Blessings

  7. Yes, I will be 44, so very similar! It will be just wonderful, although I am a bit worried how she will cope. I'm sure she'll be fine, but I guess you never stop worrying about your children!
