Thank-you so much for all your congratulations - not that any are due to me really; all I have done is worry the last few weeks and say I would be glad when it was all over.
My first parcel will be on its way on Monday morning. I have knitted two cardigans in first size and hearing Ula'a weight and seeing her photograph makes me wonder whether they will fit. So I need to get them there quickly. I have also crocheted the pram blanket behind the jackets in the photograph. The squares are pure Wensleydale Longwool. The only thing is that it will not go in the washing machine other than on a cold wash, so it is that or hand wash, which is a nuisance with babies. Still, I have enjoyed making it and am rather pleased with the finished article. The three other cardigans I have knitted are all in six month size, so it is not so urgent to get them there.
I understand that mother and baby were going home this morning (they live in Glasgow) - one thing is for sure - from today their lives will be changed for ever.
Here us a little story about babies which will make you laugh. A friend was telling me the other day how she was at tea with friends where mother and father were both doctors. They had four children - two plus twins. During tea one of the children explained to the table in general that she had heard that day at school how babies got into their mummies tummies, but when she explained, she had got it all wrong. Father carefully explained the truth in quite explicit language at which she said in horror, "Did you and mummy actually do that four times?" Her twin sister replied, "Don't be silly, it would only be three times because we are twins!" Oh the innocence of little children - and how quickly it goes these days.
