Well, we think it’s exciting! This year hasn’t been the best what with my darling dad having to move into a nursing home and poor old Mr Jane Makes having a heart attack but my dad is being well cared for and is as settled as he can be and Mr J-M is a new (and much thinner) chap!
Onto the exciting bit … I have two really lovely step-daughters who I have known since they were little girls and they mean a great deal to me. I know they read this blog but I’m not just saying that! They are both grown up now and living in London. On a recent visit J told us that she and P are having a baby! Mr J-M is going to be a grandad and I’m going to be …. I’ve not quite decided what yet apart from very pleased!
I’m now planning some tiny sewing but, as this blog is not secret, I won’t necessarily be revealing too much here. I probably won’t be knitting as I’m far from an expert but when it comes to baby-related fabrics I’m quite beside myself!
My first purchase was a kit at Sewmance in Brighton on Saturday. I’ll probably do a separate post on that event but here’s a sneak preview of the fabric. I’ve looked at the instructions and have no idea how I’m going to deal with something so weeny but I’ll give it a go.
The new arrival is due at the end of March but, given the way time flies, that day will be here before we know it!
