I'm a grandma again

My daughter Sharon has finally given birth to a gorgeous baby boy named Joshua. He was born around 1.00pm this afternoon , not quite sure of the exact time, but he weighed in at 8 pounds 3 ounces. He was eleven days overdue and yesterday they found out that he was breech so she had to have a c-section as the hospital thought that trying to turn the baby at such a late stage would probably upset both babe and mum.

They are both doing fine as is Sharon's partner Carl who is over the moon that his first baby is a son. I can't wait to get up to Chester to see them all but especially to have a cuddle with their new arrival.

It's been a lovely sunny day for most of the day though we did have the occasional drop of rain and I had my friend call round with her grandaughter who is only ten weeks old, so all in all it's been a rather lovely day.....

And finally, my lovely granddaughter lily with my old gardening hat on, I love her to bits.
