Grandpa Meets Oliver

Oliver is two weeks old today.  There have been some really worrying post birth moments but thankfully both Sara and Oliver are making a steady recovery.  Since the kids were away on planned activities yesterday, Dave and I took the opportunity to pop over to Grange to see Sara and Oliver, and Tom too during his lunch hour!  We had a really lovely time and it was good to see them all:

Welcome Baby Oliver

This little guy was born at 3:01 pm on Thursday 15th March.

Sara's labour started at 11pm on Tuesday 13th March, so it was a long, long stretch :-)  She did amazingly well and we are really proud of her.  There were a few hairy moments and I don't think I have prayed so hard in all my life!  Mother and baby are doing well and we hope to meet this cutie sometime soon.

Mother's Day Meet Up :: A Cat In A Case

Yesterday was Mothering Sunday here in the UK.  It always occurs in the fourth Sunday of Lent and was traditionally a time when those working in service, were allowed this day to return to their mother church and spend time with their families.  We managed to catch up with our respective mothers and Kath and MG on Friday, so today was a Sara and Tom day:

 I made heart shaped scones which we served with olive spread and blackcurrant jam.  We met at our favourite place in Grange and interestingly enough this was the same place where Sara and Tom announced their pregnancy!

 39 weeks and a few days and so ready for Nutkin to be born, hope this wee one soon puts in an appearance :-)

Pip was most definitely not in the mood for having her photo taken!

"What do you mean,I'm not supposed to be in here?"

" Surely you can work round me, 'cos after all I'm not sat on all of the books and papers."

" Good, that's settled then, I'm staying put for the time being!"
