We travelled back home from the wedding in Wales at a leisurely pace. Had a lovely time, got home, unpacked, put a load of washing in and settled down with the thought that we could rest for about two weeks before the next excitement of our great granddaughter arriving.
We rested for.....let's see, well till seven am on Wednesday morning when we got the call to tell us that Hermione May had been born!! She weighed in at seven pounds odd and is the most beautiful baby ever !

Our grandson was a star. He cried when he saw his bride so we all cried with him. Then he cried while giving his speech at the reception so we all cried again, we were running out of tissues.

We then decided we needed something to eat so we went in search of a pub meal. Saturday night is not the right time to get a meal without booking lol. We ended up eating fish and chips in the car with sister in law and brother in law and my sister angela. I dread to think what the car will smell like in the morning lol.

A very important part of being attached to a drip is getting the canular into a suitable vein. Have I got a suitable vein? It doesn't seem so, or at least, I may have a suitable vein but apparently it's in hiding.
They tried to get it into the back of my right hand twice (two bruises) then my right arm twice, then my left hand once still no luck. So then the vampire nurse turns her attention to the inside of my wrist!!! Of course, the luck of the Stonehewers says that the said suitable vein is highly visible and is imminently suitable.
After nearly an hour of trying to find said suitable vein and beginning to feel like a pincushion I bravely tell them to go ahead, just do it!!! Needless to say it really hurt and I realise that I am not brave at all (though I didn't cry till I got home) just foolhardy. Now please don't think I am complaining about the nursing staff at the hospital, they are wonderful and I hold them in highest regard. It is my fault, or at least the faulting of my veins.
I shall now retire to my bed to nurse my bruises and thank my lucky stars that this treatment could possibly last for as long at twelve months!!!
Now I'm not really a hat person but felt that I really needed something. So I went to a tiny stall in our local indoor market and she made me a fastenator which she matched with my dress and jacket. I'm absolutley delighted with it, here it is. Just proof that supporting the small business pays off.

After watching a splendid Wimbledon semi final we decided it was time to get out the pork and make the sausages which we have been wanting to make for ages.
We are now just sitting down at one am having been on our feet all evening stuffing home made sausage meat into skins. My back aches, my feet ache and Peters arm aches but we have made 75 sausages. It was probably cheaper to go and buy them but at least this way we know what's in them.
