Welcome to our new babies

Time: the commodity that's in such short supply. The older we get the faster it speeds by.
Our family is growing by leaps and bounds. Our eldest grandchild is now the proud daddy of twin girls.

Charlotte and Elizabeth --- lovely old fashioned names.  As one great-grand-aunt commented "real names".

I often wonder when I see and meet children with outlandish names how those youngsters are going to  feel about their wacky names when they are old enough to resent being teased and tormented by their peers.  In my fairly long life I've found chilldren to be really cruel little creatures.

 It is great to see all the really old fashioned names being given to the current generation. Thomas, Cameron, Finn, Sophie, Holly, Jacob and Jodie and Joey feature in the current crop of family babies and toddlers.

My writing has had to take a little bit of a back seat as family committments have been piling up. Two of my sisters as well as our son in law can't drive after surgery so we've had to ferry them back and forth to their hospital appoinments. With running the shop it makes for a rather complicated schedule.

Not that I mind. When we needed help my family was there to help and support us through some pretty grim and tough times. And I'm only too happy to give help and support now when it is needed.
As the saying goes, "What goes around comes around."
