We're going to be a grandmother again!
Our lovely Australian daughter has confirmed that she is expecting her second child, due in early January 2011. We are so excited and have started saving for our airline tickets.
And look who's going to be a great-grandmother for the sixth time:
Home and recovering well from her op
Today my mother was looking cool and channeling safari style from "Out of Africa" - quite topical in more ways than one. Her linen dress is from M&S and she accessorised it with a wonderful chunky blue and silver bead necklace. (Sorry that I forgot to remove her Aid-call pendant for the photo.) She is happy to be home and very much enjoying the tennis from Wimbledon. She also followed the football and has a lot to say about Wayne Rooney.
In case you have been missing me (!) I haven't been able to blog or comment on others for a few days, partly because I've been away in London but mostly because my Internet connection suddenly became very erratic. Happily I think I may have discovered the cause. It seems that I had somehow become attached to the unsecure BT Openworld instead of my usual connection. Quite disturbing and I'm trying to find out how this happened.
I now have some catching up to do - especially about Clerkenwell vintage fashion fair, Chelsea antiques fair, and most recently, Newbury Racecourse fair where I met the lovely Tracey of The Vintage Bothy.
I leave you with this Thought of The Day from the London Underground at The Oval last Tuesday.
