A sunbeam!

Things have been so difficult over Christmas with my Mother In Law so poorly in hospital.
How wonderful to also have someone shiny,new,full of life and fun to balance things out!

Now all the family have gone and we are left with happy memories of such a happy little chap. He is obviously totally unaware of the challenges advancing years bring.

One of the hardest things about being the "filling" in the generation gap sandwich is that you are made painfully aware of what may be lying in wait for you!

So gather those rosebuds whilst you can,sniff the perfume long and hard and make the most of every minute.William certainly does.


  1. Bless his cotton socks and his lack of em! xxx

  2. Lovely pictures ...hope your MIL is better today

  3. Living in the moment--I try, but babies do it naturally! We could learn a lot from them........
    Saying a prayer for your MIL.
    Hugs and Happy New Year!

  4. What a super little chap!! Hope MIL is on the mend, my MIL has been really poorly over the holidays. She lives 3,500 miles away so husband has been very anxious, especially as all the flights were booked up. Thankfully she seems to be on the mend now.

    All the best to you and yours for a Happy New Year, Helenxx

  5. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a lovely comment - hope you will visit again! Happy to be your 150th follower :)

    Your William is indeed a little sunbeam! Hope your mum-in-law recovers soon. Have a Happy New Year xx

  6. I can fully understand where you're coming from, Linda, in terms of "what's in store". I read a book recently called "the warmth of the heart stops the body from rusting" which gave some interesting and inspiring perspectives, once you get through the first gloomy chapter. You have enough warmth in your heart to keep you going for decades! I hope your mother-in-law will be comfortable in her recovery. William will help everyone through this too.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. It really is lovely to see you here. I hope you find something useful or that makes you smile or maybe both!
