Last night my son and partner had their second child a little girl called Olivia May.
Today i baked more mince pies, a nice homemade gravy and chocolate truffles, the whole time wondering what olivia looks like and remembering when my own babies were born.
I hope to see her in the next week or two.
Today i put the radio on low with christmas songs faintly in the back ground, thinking about all my babies as they have grown through different stages, remembering how busy the home was at christmas time when they were little. After washing dishes for what seemed like the fourth time round, i got to thinking about Amish ladies who have a serious amount of washing dishes each day, they say its a small price to pay for the meal they enjoy with their large families daily.
I wish all my family and friends a lovely christmas day, and until i meet her i will wait with excitement to meet my grandaughter Olivia May. x
