Yay...Another Grandson!

If some of you had been wondering where I went last week as you had been trying to get hold of me to no avail...well, it was because I was busy up north cuddling Grandson No. 2 who made an early appearance. 
Little Jack is just absolutely beautiful and I am thrilled to bits. 

Grandson No. 1 is now four months old and Grandma here is looking after him every Tuesday from now on.  So at the moment as you can imagine, I don't get much work done on Tuesdays! 

After waiting years for my grown up children to have offspring of their own, I had decided that it was never going to happen....and then suddenly along come two grandchildren within 4 months of each other. Am loving every single minute spent with them, and still can't quite believe it!  Isn't it amazing how after 20+ years, all those nappy changing skills, rocking techniques and even those little nursery songs, suddenly come flooding back very quickly :) 

But now after all the excitement, reality has kicked in once more with a vengeance and have been spending hours over my accounts and tax return...which I have been putting off doing for weeks (I absolutely hate doing them).  Unfortunately, the added complication of  all that entails when a spouse passes away was enough to send me into melt down, as I got so confused as to what was taxable and what was not taxable, which bit goes into which box on the tax form, etc. However, after spending just 20 minutes with a lovely accountant, who explained it all in simple English, enabled me to dash back home and complete the online self assessment tax form in less than 10 minutes. The pleasure of pressing that SUBMIT button was immense, I can tell you. 

So now I can concentrate on listing some rather exquisite and in some cases quite rare antique miniature treasures to KT Miniatures website over the next couple of days or so.

Hello Celia,
Congratulations! Jack is just beautiful. I wish him all the best. What fun it must be!
You asked me about the flat black spray paint I used to make the cast iron ranges in my kitchen. I finally found information at the following link:

Big hug,

Congratulations Celia! And the new grandbabies will have someone their own age to experience life with! Good things do come to those who wait! I am counting on it! :O)

My Congratulations to you Celia on both your 2 new grandsons and also on being able to get through your Tax Returns in record time-
you've been given a DOUBLE Measure of PLEASURE!

Jodi....you are right there, as they are so close in age I am hoping they will be able to play together. However, the sibling rivalry between their dads was mega in this household as they were growing up. Still is there between them to a certain extent, although I am hoping fatherhood on their part will help matters! :)

Thanks Elizabeth, I certainly have had a DOUBLE Measure of PLEASURE!:)
