Well. The past few days can be summed up by saying that it has not been fun. But enough of that.
It is a grey day here, and a sweet young friend gave birth to a 9lb 4oz baby girl this morning after 2 days of labour, followed by a Caesarian. Thank God for modern medicine. This is Margaret (the garden fairy) and Derek's new granddaughter I am talking about, and I have been checking my phone on the hour every hour for news. Sleep has been somewhat illusive, you see. What a great cause for celebration!
I have friends from South Africa about to come and visit this morning, so that is a wonderful distraction too. I haven't seen them for years, so we will have a lot of catching up to do.
This is a post of random bits, because, to be honest, I cannot concentrate on a thing. The focus is gone right now. It has been gone for a couple of days. All I have actually achieved is a little quilting, and a loaf of that Nutty Wheat bread baked (and forgotten in the oven for 15 extra minutes, which says it all) and that is it.
Ah well...... things can only get better!
