Topic: It's Easter ....

It's Easter ... a time for hope and renewal.  Here in Essex UK, the sun has been shining this afternoon, the birds have been singing and the daffodils look glorious!

Sending Easter greetings, love and positive thoughts to everyone with cc and to all those who love and care for them.

Thank-you Helen and same over here. Blooming flowers, sun and family. My bunny is energizing so he can hide 3 dozen eggs tomorrow. Spring is new beginnings and Teddy & I wish that for all our family where ever you may be.

Re: It's Easter ....

Hi Helen,

Here in Scotland, the sun has not been out as much as it seems to have been down south, but I think we are getting there, finally!!! My Easter greetings go to you and your family! I hope you have a good weekend.

Yes this is a time for hope, and as Lainy says, new beginings. Tonight my little cousin Clare has finally gone into labour. She was due nearly 2 weeks ago, but now it seems as if baby is finally making an appearance! She is having a little girl!!

Re: It's Easter ....

Happy Easter to you to Helen,

So sorry but forgot to thank you for the information from Imperial. Couldn't end up opening the PDF file but sure enough the 'hard' copy arrived the following day.

Thank You,

Katie

Re: It's Easter ....

Hope the baby has arrived safely, Gavin.  Wonderful that the circle of life continues ...

Glad you got the info Katie - it is heartening to see that serious research is underway in earnest!

Re: It's Easter ....

Thanks everyone. Little Elidh Elizabeth Shearer arrived this afternoon and weighed in at 8lb 11oz. Both mother and daughter are doing well. I haven't seen either of them yet, but they should be home tomorrow. A good Easter Sunday for us! Here is a picture, I hope the link works.

Re: It's Easter ....

Congratulations to all, Gavin.  Lovely news!

Re: It's Easter ....

Thanks Everyone. Yes it is great news and Elidh is a lovely addition to our family and is as cute as you would expect!. They both got home on Monday and I saw them both yesterday. Clare had an issue with low blood pressure as she lost quite a bit of blood, but both mother and daughter are fine now, although both seem to be very tired! I will see them both again tomorrow I think.

My best wishes to everyone,

Gavin

Re: It's Easter ....

Hi Uncle G. I tried to log in but it said unavailable. Glad everything is good and it won't be long before you can be teaching Elidh all of the good restaurants to go to! Give the baby kisses for me and ENJOY!

Re: It's Easter ....

Thanks Darla and Lainy,

Hopefully I will see them tomorrow so I will have the camera ready to take some pics! Elidh seems to like sleeping, a lot!! Her mum had to wake her up the other day to feed her, but she wasn't interested and dropped right off back to sleep again! But I guess that is better than a baby that will not sleep!!

Re: It's Easter ....

Uncle G  what a nice distraction,I have a nephew/neice due next month too.Couldnt see the pictures though,Gavin                      Janet

Re: It's Easter ....

Hi Janet,

That link was to my little cousins Facebook page and it doesn't seem to work. So when I get some pics I will put them on my FB page so that people here can see them.

Great news that you have a nephew or niece on the way! I am sure that he or she will bring you much joy!

Best wishes,

Gavin
