Decisions ... Gran, Granny or Grandma ...

Not too sure what I am, but that really doesn't matter. What does matter is the fact that this afternoon, 2 weeks early, Florence Mary Sage arrived, taking everyone by surprise.

So exciting ... I think Grandpa's quite thrilled, too ... and Supergran (how many of you remember that children's programme in the 1980s?) is beside herself. We're all hoping to meet her sometime tomorrow.

Oh wow Sue! Congratulations to you all. And welcome to the grandmother fold! I am a 'Granny' but so is the other one so confusion reigns. Looking forward to seeing pics on your blog very soon! Cx.

Thank you all for your congrats and good wishes.

We weren't able to visit today but fingers are crossed that we can go tomorrow.

Now we've got used to the name Florence we're quite thrilled - I thought she was going to be Daisy if she turned out to be a girl - and having seen gorgeous piccies she's definitely more of a Florence!

As for Mary, not only is it my middle name and Supergran's, but it's also the other Granny's middle name, too. Good choice!!

Will post a pic when I know I'm allowed. Meanwhile I can tell you she has Rob's hands, so will probably be a farmer and/or a concert pianist, and has lashings of dark hair which we're all guessing will go lighter very soon.

Thanks again ...

Congratulations! When my children were born, my Mum insisted on using "Nanny" as she said she wasn't old enough to be called "Granny." Now the great grandchildren have arrived, she revels in the name "Granny" now that she is has great grandmother status. "A rose by any other name." SueXX

Suzy's Vintage Attic said...

Congratulations! You must all be so thrilled. Is it to be Gran, Granny or Grandma? When my time comes to be a Grandmother I will be called Mémé, just like my Mother and my Grandmother.

Enjoy this precious arrival in to your family. Florence is a very pretty name, I like it.
Take care

茜茜知道他有了外遇
他變得春風滿面,嘴裡總是哼著歌曲
他開始變得有耐心聽她說話、會買禮物給她、甚至帶她出遊
茜茜知道這是因為他對外遇有愧疚
她沒有揭穿丈夫的外遇,甚至享受這樣的生活
茜茜偷偷的跟姐妹滔說:感謝老公的外遇帶來更美好的夫妻生活!

知道他有了外遇
面對他的低聲下氣妳冷嘲熱諷、無理取鬧
妳瘋狂似的大吵大鬧
甚至到他的公司去亂、向他的親友抱怨、向鄰居們哭訴…
妳把他的外遇鬧的人盡皆知
最後,妳把他的愧疚消耗殆盡…
最後,妳把他想要回頭的念頭打消…
最後,妳自己把他推向外遇的第三者身邊…

外遇---偷來的時間、偷來的伴侶、偷來的愛情
或許新鮮刺激,或許瘋狂美好,但這一切,終究是偷來的…
外遇傷害了一個幸福的家庭
或許你會說:問題其實早已存在,外遇並不是傷害的唯一因素
但是內心深處其實你知道,這只是外遇的藉口!
建築在傷害別人之下所得到的愛情,終究難以幸福…

人家都說男人到大陸都會外遇包二奶
老婆淚眼說擔心他外遇
他了解老婆的擔心,只好用錢去彌補分離的缺憾
漸漸的,老婆的電話愈來愈少…
她說,她是怕自己太依賴
漸漸的,他知道其實是她有了外遇
於是,面對自己外遇的行為,他忽然覺得好過了些…

Hi Sue
So very very long since I've dropped by. Just catching up and so happy to see your(now rather old) news! Congratulations on becoming a Grandparent. Wondering if you've decided on the name yet?Love reading anything about babies at present as we're expecting our own in December. Hope you're enjoying spending time with your very sweet Grandaughter.
