An excellent day

We had Daughter 1 and her husband and the baby and Daughter 2 (and me and Mr Life and my mum) most of today. Which was lovely. We played "Balderdash" - which I recommend - it's good fun. Daughter 2 is a very doting aunt. Grandson has been brought up with so much love from his parents and us and our other offspring and all his Worcester relations - it makes one conscious that not all babies are so wanted and cherished and that not all parents are able to keep their babies warm and comfortable.

Thank you for all your good wishes. I've now posted for something like 60 consecutive days and have enjoyed it. It seems a bit self-indulgent, though, and no one could claim that I have anything much to say. But has that stopped me?

Daughter 2 goes back to London tomorrow to rejoin her husband and to restart her work and her Real Life. I shall miss her; she knows this. (Remember the excellent times; remember the excellent times... .)

(Clarissa - how lovely to hear from you! I hope you're well and things are good with you. I occasionally check your blog but there are still only two entries, both now a long time ago. I'd love to read more!)

  2. An excellent day indeed! May you have many, many more excellent days of one kind or another in 2012, Isabelle. Grandson is one very lucky little boy to be surrounded by so much love.

  4. Signs on! That little guy is thriving on all that love and attention....and maybe a little Miracle Gro?? Because, from here, he looks several inches bigger each time I see a picture! Plus, that smile just gets wider and wider! Happy New Year to the Life household!

  6. It's no wonder your grandson always looks so happy with all the love he's getting.

  7. I have loved all your posts! Please do keep them coming! :) And I like the "excellent" in the title, although when daughter leaves it's not so excellent, anymore... I wish you a wonderful 2012!! :))

  8. I so enjoy hearing about your day, and dreaming of my own retirement someday - as I head back to school tomorrow and try to get my students focused on the finals coming next week. Wishing you a wonderful 2012.
