Tuesday was a very special day, I boarded a plane in Alicante in the late afternoon case packed with goodies, oh and a few clothes, if i run out i shall just have to go shopping lol, and three hours later I was having my first ever cuddle with my beautiful new granddaughter and her daddy of course.
Such a strange sensation as Shine said here we are go to grandma as I associate that name to my grandma and my mum, but here I was suddenly in that role, it will take a bit of getting used to.
Yesterday evening we went out for a bite to eat and Leocia was fast asleep just as Shine returned with her meal she woke for a feed. As mums know adjusting to snatching a few minutes in between demands can be challenging, but as soon as she had finished I took her so they could enjoy the rest of the meal in peace. Was there an ulterior motive, yep you bet as I got a lovely half hour of humming and swaying to the background music and storing up memories whilst gazing down at my beautiful girl who was desperately fighting with her eyelids, but in the end it was Grandma 1, Leocia 0 :-)
Rebecca and Antoni also caught a flight Tuesday heading off for an adventure of their own, but they were landing at Bristol. Antoni discovered a few months ago that he had a half sister so after corresponding with emails etc they decided to meet for the first time. She lives in Bristol so that was ideal. There was a little trepidation all round, but thanks to the emails any awkwardness disappeared and they had a lovely evening. They are staying for three days, meeting Daisy for most of them before getting the coach to join us in Exeter.
Gosh, what an emotional rollercoaster for us all as we are all getting used to our new roles and the family is expanding. such a shame Chris couldn't be with us, but thank goodness for Skype.
I shall have to wait until Antoni arrives to learn how to put photos on my tablet as he is the computer whizz. Just wish he would do it a little slower so I can take the instructions on board lol.
Take care xcx
