Our lovely kids were all in touch today with cards, calls, chocolates and photographs and an extra rather special gift: Refuge_parcels_-_mother_s_parcel. Do click on the link to see the important work being done for women less fortunate than those in my family.
It has been another beautiful day so we popped down to Chapel Porth before the crowds! Join our walk at low tide on an almost empty beach.
I send my love to all my lovely readers, be you Mothers or not. I hope you have all had a good day.
This video of a four year old girl singing a duet with her Dad has made my day! In a world as crazy as this one seems just now, family love, talent and friendship are to be celebrated. Please click on the link.
I have a new knitting project which has to be completed by March.
The Crocuses that I showed you in bud are now gloriously out and beautiful.
A parcel of baby clothes has been sent from Daughter no 3 for the soon-to-be-born Grandbaby twins. It contains little things that I have knitted over the last eight years for all of our Grandbabies so far and among those treasures I found the first tiny cardigan that I knitted in 1973 for our own first baby!
…….. arriving in Bristol this afternoon where we picked up the car and are now in London with two more LiveWires. Our eldest daughter has arrived this evening and tomorrow the rest of the family will be here for a rather late family get together for Christmas!
It was on this day in 2004 that my lovely Dad died and he has been in my mind and my heart more than usual today. The following cutting was found by my Mum many, many years ago and clearly made her think of her Father, my Grandfather, The Rev W R Richards, whom I knew for only a couple of years when we lived in the Vicarage in Cockerham, Lancashire with him and my Granny.
If only – my lovely Dad was a very wise man.
