Double whammy granny

I slept jolly well last night, good job I didn't have anything on first thing.  This afternoon, as I said yesterday, I went to look after Zerlina because her parents had an appointment.  She was lovely and we played for the afternoon - I reminded her a couple of times about the loo, and she headed for the stairs when she felt the need.  Good girlie.

As you know, Dilly and Al are expecting a baby in late May.  Now Weeza has had a scan and is over the first more precarious weeks, I can tell you that she and Phil are expecting their second child in mid-August.    I'm feeling quite the matriarch, I can tell you, and it's a jolly good feeling.  One of these days, someone in the family might take me seriously and I may receive the respect I deserve.

Or maybe I do already.  Oh dear.

Ooh, the same time as my first grandson was born. Give them my congratulations.

It's like scrabble. You're vainly trying to catch up with my impressive lead!

Many congratulations to you all!

Not giving up hope, Rog - but even with a double, you're way ahead. I'll have to tell the children to aim for triplets next time,.

Thanks, all of you. Lovely to hear from you, Jane, hope all's well x

Well done, Z. Matriarchs like yourself and Queen Victoria have my particular respect, maybe because no matter how hard I try I can never become one.

Z said...

Please don't see that as a failure on your part, Chris. And thank you, although I didn't really do anything to achieve these particular results.

That's the respect I deserve, Dave? No, an early night.

Thanks!
