The Best News!

Here we are again, the start of a new year. I love that it's new, opens the mind to all sorts of new beginnings and possibilities. It isn't that those possibilities are not there at other times, but it puts them more to the front of my mind.

It wasn't the best of years last year, though still lots of wonderful times were had. This year, well as I sit typing this with my box of tissues next to me and a hot mug of Lemsip, feeling full of cold and high temps, is full of excitement and promise. I can't help but have an enormous grin on my face as I tell you I'M GOING TO BE A NANNY! I am so thrilled to share with you all that I am looking forward to meeting my first grandchild this summer. I know it's very early, but I have already started knitting a little sleep sack in some soft, white, baby yarn. My son and his girlfriend are so excited and he proposed to her on Christmas Day, oh what a wonderful Christmas it has been!

I shall do my best not to go on about how excited I am, I find myself at times during the day nudging my husband and whispering 'I'm going to be a nanny' while he whispers back 'and I'm going to be a granddad' and we both have big beaming smiles on our faces.

I hope everyone out there has had a good Christmas, or as good as they could, I know Christmas isn't a wonderful time for a lot of people. I hope this new year is kind to us all, I'm looking forward to catching up with everyone and sharing our lives over 2017.

Take care

  1. Take it from me having your first grandchild is exactly the same as having your first child, rather wonderful, but the grandchild(ren) if like me is spoilt rotten!

  22. Oh but you must share your excitement about becoming a nanny. It is the most wonderful thing to watch your own offspring become parents. I was giddy for the whole nine months of waiting for my two to arrive.
    What a lovely picture you put in my mind of you and hubby nudging each other and the smiles on your faces....just gorgeous.
    Congratulations future Nanny and Grandad-x-
