Thank you for all your lovely comments on the birth of our darling grand-daughter W. She is adorable and has now regained her birth weight of 6lbs 2ozs. She had been poorly with an infection after her birth, having to remain in hospital for a few days and returning every 12 hours for antibiotics to be administered in the canula they put in her arm. Thankfully she is now better and settling down to life with her family.I don't as a rule put photos of the grand-children here without their parents' consent so for the moment there are none. She has a mop of jet black hair, dark blue eyes and a lovely dimple on her cheek. Both her siblings started life with black hair and are now both blonde so who knows?
The pram blanket did get finished and I must admit I was pretty chuffed with the end result, never having attempted anything like it before. I can't believe that joining all the squares and then putting a border around it took so long. Anyway it's now taken pride of place on the pram.
My Uni course is absolutely great, Renaissance Art History, and I'm loving it. BUT - it is very time consuming as there is an awful lot of reading, much more than I've ever had, so consequently things are falling behind. Hopefully, if I pass, this will be my last year which ends in May with a 4,500 word dissertation.
It does have its good side though. As you know I love visiting London and so I have a very good excuse to visit many of the galleries in the coming months - such as The National Gallery, The Courtald Gallery in Somerset House as well as the Victoria and Albert Museum. I've just booked to visit the Queen's Gallery in Buckingham Palace with a friend in a few weeks time to view their Northern Renaissance Art collection.
On another note, the recent winds have meant the remaining leaves have finally fallen and I was so surprised yesterday to find they had somehow blown into something similar to this. I just neatened it and put the hole in the middle and ran indoors for my camera before the wind wooshed it away again!!
A big welcome to my two new followers, Cathi and Janys. I can't see a link to your blogs so if you leave a comment hopefully I should be able to link back to you.
Have a good week and I'll see you soon.
