We had a BBQ and a baby today.

Phew what an eventful weekend - I feel exhausted.  It was a bank holiday weekend here in the UK and we certainly filled every waking moment.

My son was working on our new decking which meant Mike, Lauren and I were painting on Sunday.  Well I sort of twisted their arm into helping me.

Today we scheduled a BBQ for Mike's son, partner and grandson, and my son, daughter-in-law and two granddaughters Alana and Sofia and my daughter Lauren and Bentley the great-dane.

I rec'd a text this morning at 03:30hrs to inform me that Lauren's waters had broken and at 8am she was in the hospital waiting for baby Lili to arrive, and she did at 16:30 hours weighing in at 6lbs 6oz.  This is 2 weeks early, and a sort of relief because we were expecting this very event to happen during the wedding.

My life is a whirlwind of events at the moment, I feel like I am on huge merry-go-round and still more to come.  Meet Lilli Grace with a very hot, tired Nanny P who has clearly caught the sun this weekend with all my painting - hope the red nose goes before the wedding ha ha.
